Default 2017 Highlights/2018 Goals?

Well, its that time of the year again, so what'd you get in '17 and what're you gonna get in '18? My picks for the year:

Picked up nice examples of both Louis variations in the 1948 Leaf set:



This Holloway Black Cow Sucker back Louis was a definite find:



Another ultra-rare Adam Hats PC showed up:



This card was with the Adam Hats card. I didn't realize until after I got it that it depicts a training facility in a small town in NY where I spent my happiest summers as a boy:



The highlight of my trip to the National:



Finally picked up a pair of these 1975 St. Johns Ice Cream premiums:




B-Hop signed card from his appearance at the Philly Show earlier this month with a 'bonus' fingerprint on the "H":



And finally, the best premium of the year, a 1955 Slim Jim/Slidewell Bows Marciano Broadside. About 11 x 15, on a thick board backing:



2018 goals: just more of the same. I'd love to find a few more tough type cards and maybe a Louis or two that I don't have. I'm working on two books, the next edition of the boxing card book and a book on Exhibit cards. Hope to have both published by June.

Default 2018 goals

Good year for T-card pickups. Added a lot of T220 Tolstoi's, T219 Miner's Extra's and am now over half way to a T218 master set (all sports). "Modernized" a little bit and picked up half the 48 Leafs and 51 Ringside's.


Goal for 2018: Finish my T220 Tolstoi set (have 42/50 including most of the popular ones), T219 Honest Long Cut set and hit 450 unique cards on my T218 master set run. Honestly will be thrilled with even 1 of the 3!

Great pickups. I didn't know there were two variations of the 48' Leaf Louis.

My 2018 goal is to find a nice-looking 1935 B&B Joe Louis.

Sorry, can't help. I cut down to one type card from each T set.
