Collecting goals for 2012
I don't know if this has been posted anywhere, but what are your top 3-5 collecting goals 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

RE: Collecting goals for 2012
My goal is to get 500 unique Kevin Youkilis cards. I currently have 310 plus more coming in the mail, so this shouldn't be too hard.

RE: Collecting goals for 2012
One of my 2011 goals was to hunt down the ever so rare dufex Thomas card and the Auburn Thomas card. It wasn't looking good but it appears I have today agreed to terms on a trade that will bring me both. I won't have them in hand in 2011 but this is close enough for comfort to me.

2012
1. Knock of at least 5 cards (1 rare) per month from my pre-1996 Frank Thomas list
2. Acquire every Jeff Francoeur Royals card not listed as a 1/1
3. Acquire every Alcides Escobar Royals card not listed as a 1/1
4. Acquire every Kila Ka'aihue in a Royals uniform not yet acquired with a print run over 1 (may be a tough one)
5. Build a Rainbow from Super to base (did one in 2011)

Kila Ka'aihue 133/138 Non 1/1s (96% complete) 13/64 1/1s (19% complete)

RE: Collecting goals for 2012
Some good goals.

My goal is to NOT break anything until Summertime (This will be hard with the itch)

Finding that buying singles is the way to go for the most part, unless you can get your hands a good deal. Would however LOVE to have the money to blow and bust a case of Triple Threads.

My goals for 2012 are:
1) get my chipper pc up to 1000 different cards
2) build up my trade bait and make more trades


I don't have any other goals for next year right now, but I may think of some as the year progresses.
