If you're anything like me that is the hardest one to do. I'm always a sucker for a deal.

RE: Collecting goals for 2012
Alright, time to check in to see how many of us accomplished our goals.

Quote:1. Finish both 2011 sets I'm working on (Diamond Anniversary & Heritage Chrome)
Not finished but getting closer on each. That DA set is a beast.

Quote:2. Buy hobby boxes of a few sets instead of blowing cash on blaster after blaster at Walmart/Target
I bought 4 hobby boxes this year which is about the same as last year. Definitely cut down on the retail though, so I'd say this was half accomplished.

Quote:3. Trade for both a Lincecum and Posey auto
Didn't get either of these done, though I did finally get my first Will Clark auto yesterday Smile

Quote:4. Get all of my Will Clark collection/needs marked
HEY, I ACTUALLY GOT THIS DONE!

1. Get a Derek Jeter auto.
2. Cut down on buying boxes.
3. Buy/make more card display cases for my PC.
4. Sell/get rid of a lot of my commons.
5. I would really like to start collecting more Jeter so if Nunez prices are decent, I will sell to get more Jeter.

Edit: just realized this was for 2012...

Mine are
1. Get a 2002 Bowman Chrome Joe Mauer autograph
2. Get 10 more unique Denard Span autographs- Shouldn't be too bad, currently have 7
3. Get my Joe Mauer collection over 400 unique cards. Have just over 200 right now
4. Buy or trade for autographs of Rod Carew, Harmon Killebrew, Tony Oliva, Kent Hrbek. Puckett will have to wait
5. Bring my Denard Span collection to about 150-200 unique cards. I only have 41 right now

2013 Goals
1. Bust a case of something
1. Get a Kirby Puckett auto

1. FAIL! Had opportunities, but never pulled the trigger
2. SUCCESS! Wanted to finish with 17, finished with 30!
3. FAIL! 321. I focused on Span much more than Mauer this past year
4. Wash. I had autos of Killebrew, Oliva, and Hrbek, but I had to sell them off because I needed money.
5. FAIL! 133. He has about 400 cards listed. I am proud though since I have added a Denard Span Game used bat and a game used hat to my collection

so 1/5. I will be working on setting new goals for 2013
