Default 2017 Goals

I would really like to finally finish the 1967 set I've been slowly working on for years. I recently got the Mantle, so I'm down to about a dozen high number commons and the Seaver. Thanks to Todd (bbcard1), I was recently able to knock 29 high numbers off all at once. I'm not too worried about condition with this set, as most of them are well loved cards from my youth.

I also need a handful of cards to complete the 1964 Topps Giants set, including two SP's, the Koufax and the Mays, but that's a back burner quest right now. And if anyone knows where I can track down 1970's Advisory Staff photos of Pirates Richie Hebner and Gene Alley, I will gladly pay a finders fee. I have been looking for those FOREVER!

Good luck to everyone with their pursuits.
Always collecting Pirates from the early 1900's thru the early 70's, and any Steelers items that catch my eye.

Completed - 1967 Topps Baseball
Working on - 1972 Topps Football

Also looking for a 1970's Spalding Advisory Staff photo of Richie Hebner.

I'd like to add 10 new cards to my signed 52 set. It's less than one per month, but January is almost half gone!

I had a really successful 2016, and I'd like to take it easier next year. My goal for this year is to pick up the two Mantle Holiday Inn items I am still missing, grab 4 or 5 of the Yankees game used hats I am still searching for, and otherwise not spend a dime on my collection for the year. In 2018, hopefully I'll be in a financial position to pick up a couple of bigger ticket Mantle items I want for my collection (1954 Stahl Meyer; 1953 Briggs Meats).

Just got back into the hobby in 2016 after being away since the early 90's. Things have changed! Particularly the availability of virtually anything I want as long as funds are available.

In 2017, I'll be aiming to complete 1958 Topps baseball in raw form (currently have a bit over 200). I'm collecting it anywhere from Poor to Nr-Mint and am looking to avoid paper loss or creases through the face.

I'm also going to start, and hopefully finish, 1974-75 OPC WHA hockey in NR-Mint.

For the sake of completeness, I'll finish up 1992-92 OPC Hockey, since I started it as a kid.

Finally, if I complete these goals I'll start on 1948 Bowman baseball, likely also raw.

One last thing - I may start to get my 1964-65 Topps hockey set graded - collected it as a kid and it's always been my favourite.

I probably have an easier goal than most on here. For baseball I want to complete the 1968 Topps Game Insert set.

After that, I will continue to work on the 1965 Topps Set, slowly but surely.

Main three cards on the want list are 1933 Goudey Ruth, 1934 Goudey Gehrig, and 1936 World Wide Gum Hartnett. Last two years were disasters for me financially, so these may well be on my 2018 list as well.

LOL, you just described my entire collecting philosophy. I normally buy cards twice a year - with Christmas and birthday money. Back before I was married I had some impressive cards in the collection that I spent way too much money on ('49 Leaf Ted Williams, '52 Topps Jackie Robinson...) but alas, those are long gone now.

I am hoping to finally finish at least 2 50's Topps sets

I'm down to
55 t- 5 but I just picked up the Aaron and made a deal for a Clemente rookie so really down to 3

56 t-11 cards

57 t- 6 cards

also have 53t-54t and 59 t started but not that close.

once those 3 sets are done I'll have to see what's next. good to see what everyone is working on

Default Collecting with my kids

My goals are to continue to expose my 8 and (soon to be) 10 year old boys to the world that is baseball card and memorabilia collecting. One has already been to 2 nationals. We are working on Pirates team sets from 1952-1973 (Clemente years) - did they have to have so many high numbers in the 52 set!? For a crappy team they have pricey cards! . Always on the lookout for the very few Clemente items on my want list - anyone happen to know the whereabouts of a 1960 complete Bazooka box with Clemente?
