My Collection Goals For 2018

I'm stuck in a rut and I am perfectly fine with that. I've settled into a collection that I am very happy with.  The goals are mostly the same (just one new one) and meeting them is not too difficult.

GOAL #1: Add my usual Cubs team sets as they are released: Topps flagship, Heritage, Opening Day, Factory Team set, Bowman, Allen and Ginter, Chrome, Gypsy Queen, Archives, Update and whatever else comes along.

GOAL #2: Add the complete sets of the flagship, update, and Allen and Ginter. I've got a flagship run starting with 1969 and the complete run of Traded / Update and Allen and Ginter. I see no reason to stop.

GOAL #3: Add any autograph and relic cards for Cubs players that haven't previously had one. I'm done with players from previous seasons, so now its just a matter of adding new guys as cards are issued.

GOAL #4: Continue adding to the player collections of Darwin Barney, Ernie Banks, Andre Dawson, Ryne Sandberg, and Billy Williams.

GOAL #5: Add odd-ball sets and sets of smaller brands that I missed earlier.

GOAL #6: This is a new one --- get certified autographs of all the Cubs that played in the 2016 World Series.

GOAL #7: Write something about the collection every day.

GOAL #8: Enjoy working on goals 1-7. I'm in trouble when I can't meet this goal.


  1. Awesome setup! I really need to start storing my binders on their sides. Happy New Year! And best of luck with your 2018 goals.

  2. I've never catcalled in my life but that photo makes me wanna whistle!
