Since I finished my 1962 Venezuelan Topps set this year I'll be looking to upgrade some cards in 2018.

I'll also try to finish my 1964 Venezuelan Topps set.

I'll like add a 1950's Mantle as well.

Picked up a couple of grails in 2017 - September 15,1960 Horne's department store Clemente and 1968 Clemente Test disc.

2018 goals - well it's been a goal for about the last 20 years so perhaps this will be the year......
1960 Complete Bazooka box with Clemente.......anybody?

Other than that, always on the lookout for rare Clemente cards and memorabilia I don't know exist and working on a run of Topps Pirates Team sets from 1955-1973 with my children. Also starting to dabble in Venezuelan pirates.

Oh yeah, a couple more - 1959 Venezuelan Mantle and 1959 Venezuelan Koufax.

Finishing my 55 Bowman Baseball didn't go as expected last year, so I guess I'll give it the ole college try again this year. Officially down to 43 cards to complete the set. That includes the variations.
I had hoped to reduce the number at the National this past summer, but that working stuff really cuts into my free time. Maybe 2018 will be the year!
I wish everyone good luck on their collecting goals in the coming year.

First of all, I'd like to sell off some of my duplicates and maybe even cull down the collection. I've got a couple of lots of '61 and '66 Topps left over from putting together sets and some other post war cards that need to find other homes.

And with those funds, I'd like to:
  • Finish a '71/'72 Topps Basketball set - so close now
  • Finish a second '71 baseball set and sell off the extras
  • Add a couple of signed '64 Topps Giants to my son's collection
  • Chip away at my master (mainstream Topps only) Mantle and Mays sets - still some low hanging fruit here
  • Add a few more T206 SLers from the Virginia League

I'm sure though I'll get distracted during the year and probably start another set.
Working Sets:
  • 1957 Topps - 294/407
  • 1964 Topps Giants auto'd - 50/60
  • 1965 Topps - 419/598
  • 1972 Topps - 749/787
  • T206 SLers, Virginia League 7/12
Completed Sets:
Baseball - 1954 Redheart, 1956, '60, '61, '66, '67, '70 - '89 Topps
Football - 1970, '75, '76, '77, '78, '79 Topps
Basketball - 1971/'72 Topps, 1986/'87 Fleer

Default Brooks Robinson/Orioles

I have a couple of goals for 2018 related to collecting listed below:

1. I started a Brooks Robinson autograph run of his regular issue cards from 1957 through 1978, all in pen, a couple months ago. Iíd like to complete the run in 2018. Thought it would be a fun side project that I canít believe I havenít done yet since Iíve been collecting Brooksie stuff for so long now. I thought Iíd have a couple already, but I only had one signed card in pen in all the junk I have acquired over the years. I really donít want to get in a hurry, which is my tendency, and have to go back an upgrade, but I have already picked up a couple which are not really the quality I wanted, but picked up to fill the gap. I guess a secondary goal with this is have some restraint.

2. Sell some items that Iíll never display or not crazy about. Use this as my spending money to pick up some more displayable items.

3. Complete my sports (currently junk) room. It was pretty much complete a couple of years ago, but I wanted to go more non cluttered and more of a nicer room/den. Itís not very large, but itís got potential. Also, my son got married and when he purchased a home I gave him the tv, cabinet, etc. out of the room so Iíll need those as well. Iím sure anyone with a room dedicated to your collection knows it will never be really done or complete, but Iím just wanting it to be a functional room rather than a place used for storage.

The above is probably enough for one year.

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Having just purchased a home, I think cards will slow down for a few months. However, here's what I'm planning for the next year:

Complete 1958 Topps Set (Need 137 more). No Yellow letters at this time - maybe in 2019

Complete 1948 Bowman (Currently have 7)

Work on 1953 Bowman Colour & B&W (Just started)

Start and complete 1975-76 OPC WHA Hockey
