--Finish my 1971 Topps Super set (14 to go) Nope
--Finish my 1972 Kellogg's ATG set (4 to go but all Ruth, Gehrig and Cobb) Nope

My goal was to overpay for lots of cards and to sell lots of others for too little, and so far the year has been a resounding success.

I would pay $20 just to see scans of 1968 Atlantic Oil Ernie Banks and Billy Williams.

Finished the 1971 Topps Supers set at the National. Also added a 1958 Bell Koufax and upgraded my 1976 Ryan. Added a 1971 OPC Russell. Upgraded a few 1974 Topps Hank Aaron specials. I searched unsuccessfully for a Star-Cal Rosen.

It was a great ride, as I had consignments in a few auction houses throughout the year, bought and sold cards thru eBay and on this board, and rekindled hobby friendships with a few collectors that I once spoke with every few days. Good stuff!

For 2017, my goals are not going to be as broad but focused on a few cards that I have wanted to own for a long time, and get some items back that I had to sell over the years.

- 1952 Topps Mays PSA 3-4
- 1933 Goudey Ruth 181 PSA or SGC 2-4
- 1960 Lake to Lake Hank Aaron
- game used bat of Pete Rose and Mike Schmidt
- start collecting focus on a HOF player set
- consider adding to a vintage Star Wars figure collection

Looking forward to reading some goals here! This a great message board, and happy to be a part of it.

Happy New Year to all!
with the year almost over, I think it is official for me at least .....

didn't add the 52 Mays
added the Ruth PSA 4
added the Lake to Lake
no bats
started (and stalled) on HOF set (still not sure which direction I want to go)
added some SW figs

and had a lot of fun!

2018 will be here soon!

Happy Holidays and Happy Collecting!
