Default Year in Review and Collecting Goals for 2017

Havent seen a thread like this... as holiday shopping for friends and family has killed the rest of my 2016 budget I thought I would share a year in review and 2017 collecting goals... would love to see and hear yours.

First of all, this is my first active year on Net54 so I wanted to thank all of you. A great group who consistently shares their knowledge for the betterment of our community. I use to be the guy who collected shinny Bowman rc's and drooled over manufactured scarcity like gold refactors. About 16 months ago I liquidated my collection of Bowman autos and got into Vintage and HOF autos... I havent looked back yet!!!!

Below are my top 5 picks ups from 2016

1) 1932 World Series - Game 3 (Ruth called shot) - PSA 3
2) T3 Turkey Ty Cobb - PSA 1
3) 1914 Cracker Jack Honus Wagner - SGC 10
4) Jackie Robinson signed postcard - PSA/DNA
5) 1956 Topps Hank Aaron - PSA 8


Below are my top collecting goals for 2017


1) Finish my 1941 Play Ball PSA 6 set for my son Parker (I am 60/72 complete)
2) Get to 50% on my 1956 Topps HOF PSA 8 set for my son Becker (I am only 1/32)
3) Purchase 1933 Goudey Babe Ruth #144 PSA 3
4) Purchase 1954 Topps Hank Aaron (looking for a PSA 5)
5) Purchase a LOW grade 1911 Sporting Life Cabitnets Honus Wagner (M110)
6) Catalog my collection
7) Figure out my storage situation... with continued big cards will either need a safe or safe deposit box.

Would love to hear your year in review and 2017 collecting goals.

Thanks and Merry Christmas

Taylor

Here was our "2016 Goals" thread, so we can see how we did: 2016 Goals

I hit or came close to some of my goals, got distracted from a few also. I'll post my full update later when I have a minute.

I would like to echo this sentiment, as it is also my first year on Net54, and I have shared a very similar, positive experience. Incredible community you've assembled here, Leon.

Top Pickups of 2016
T207 Grover Hartley
My First Jackie Robinson
My First Mickey Mantle


2017 Goals
1A) Buy a House
1B) Save for a Wedding for 2018
Y) Knock out 1948-1960 Cleveland Indians Team Sets
Z) Snag as many T206s and Vintage/Pre-War HoFers as possible


Obviously collecting is at the bottom of the list, but I still need a balance of fun in my life. Going to try and accomplish Y and Z as best I can in between saving for 1A and 1B.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May God Bless everyone's 2017 with a plethora of good fortune and happiness!

I'd like to make some progress on my signed 1953 Topps set, in particular the high numbers. My goal for 2016 was to reach 200; I just won #263 Johnny Podres, to put me at 230. Over the past year, I was able to knock out a lot of the guys who died in the 60s and 70s, including Newsom, Dressen, Kinder, Grasso, etc. I'd like to pick up #169 Dizzy Trout, as he is the last Red Sox I need.

Cool, I forgot all about that. Happy to say that I hit my 2016 goal of completing the DeLong set +/- the Gehrig. I picked all of them up except the Gehrig so that'll be my goal for 2017. Keeping it simple.

I'd also like to echo this sentiment. Since I joined the forum in the mid-summer I can honestly say I have logged on multiple times a day, everyday. I must have read every thread since joining. I'm totally hooked. The knowledge, expertise and respect on the forum is amazing. As I'm just starting out I'd like to thank you all for allowing me to be a part of your collecting journey, it's extremely motivating.

2016 Highlights - A year of firsts for me
Mantles - 64, 67(2), 68
Aarons - 56, 71
Started a couple sets
Numerous other HOFers, Rookies, etc

2017 Goals
1 - A more focused approach
2 - Pre-war

A quick note which may only interest me. I made a handful of purchases on B/S/T over the last 4 months. It turns out one member I bought from lives 10 minutes away here in Maryland, another member I bought from lives 5 minutes from my parents house and where I grew up in NY. As big as the world is, it can a tight knit community when you surround yourself with good people.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to all!

(3) Add 6-12 cards to T205 set (currently 26/208). Had the most progress here, where I added 51 cards. Most came through a large lot at Huggins & Scott last February.
(4) Add 20-30 cards to 1953 Bowman set (currently 83/224). Only added 14 cards here. Put this set on the backburner also, and got very picky about which cards to add.
(5) Pick up one exciting prewar card unrelated to my sets. Got totally out of control here. Started a slow build of a few other sets, including picking up a few N28s, N162s, E121s, and also started a big E-card project where I picked up 40 cards so far. Also got a couple T3s. I'm a set-building disaster!
(6) Don't do anything stupid, like buy a case of modern stuff. Success! I didn't buy any modern cases, although I still spent a few hundred on blasters and a couple boxes. Nothing major though.
So, in no particular order, my main goals for 2017:

(1) Finish my T209-1 set (currently 15/16).
(2) Add 2-4 more N28 or N162 baseball players.
(3) Add 10-20 cards to my T205 set (currently 77/208).
(4) Add a reasonable amount of cards to my other sets without going completely overboard.
(5) DON'T CARRY A PAYPAL CREDIT BALANCE!

My main collecting goals for 2017 are:

Finally finish my 1955 Bowman set. My goal with this set is to buy/trade for every card from members on this forum. I am around 20 cards from finishing this goal.

Pick up some T210 Ft Worth cards to get closer to finishing the team set.

Greatly reduce the size of my collection. It has gotten beyond control over the years. I have 1 room in my house that has a walk path down the center and the rest is filled 2' deep in cards. I don't just have doubles or triples I have 40-50 of some cards.

T210 Series 3 Ft Worth, looking for low end examples and especially ones with a Y shaped hole punch. I also have some extra T210's for trade.
