To complete my "All HOF" collection.

Still lots of Goudey and Play Ball cards needed.

I've spent a boat load this holidays. However, when I get better back on my feet I 'll be most searching out for ... Dizzy Dean, Rogers Hornsby, Bill Terry and Al Simmons cards as being reasonable goals in 2018.

Ruth, Cobb, Wagner or Gehrig cards ...... If I literally fall into a pile of cash.

Trying to come as close as possible to completing the 1967 Topps Venezuelan Major League set. Currently at 114/150. Also continue to add more T210 Old Mill's to my collection.

I departed from my set-building ways in 2017 and tried to pick up Clemente, Aaron and Mays cards from when they were active players (not post-career tribute cards, etc.) and made substantial progress. Still need an Aaron rookie and pre-1954 Topps and Bowman Mays cards, but don't anticipate adding these unless I win the lottery, which I never play.

I also plan to return to my comfort zone in 2018 and work on completing my 1958 Topps set. I need about 160 cards but already have most of the key cards.

If I finish 1958, my next target is 1959 Topps, where I probably need 250-300 cards, including both Mantles, the Gibson rookie and other high-value cards. If I knock out 1958 and 1959 I'll have a complete run of Topps sets from 1956 through the 1990s.

Some of my favorite 2017 pick ups


2018 Postwar goals are to continue to add to my Roberto Clemente PC and pick up HOF RCs with the 1951 Bowman Willie Mays being my top target.

My goal is to complete a 64 Topps baseball set raw to be placed in a binder. Wanna work on one set a year and always loved the plan vanilla look of the set. Not sure but its one of my favorites.

Great pick ups! All very tough "cards". Any chance you would consider a trade for the 5 of spades?

No real goals other than to add to my 52 Topps collection when I can.

I spent quite a bit of money this year on cards and with our recent new car purchase plus some recent and upcoming home reno's, my collecting pace will likely be a lot slower than it was last year, unfortunately.

Good luck to everyone reaching their goals.

My goals are to make as much progress as I can on my run of Topps sets. I don’t expect to finish the 52 this year, as I need 39 high numbers, but hope to finish everything else. That would be fifteen cards for the 53 set and sixteen for the 51 blue back. Hopefully make a little progress on my Bowman run as well. Then maybe I can concentrate more on some pre-war sets.
