Thanks man! It's been a couple of months since I updated, but there's a good mix of everything here: http://www.beckett.com/forums/thread-1573319.html

Last minute, not usually me, but it is this year :p lol. I both exceeded and fell short of my goals...if that makes sense... I'm going to grab scans over the next few days and update where I'm at.

Marshawn Lynch's northern cousin from Finland!! :p I should've used proper grammar, which would've been "To finish the Lynch Rainbows" lol.

RE: 2016 New Years Resolutions...
So I really struggled meeting my goals lol. I did some work on the 2013 Lynch rainbow, and am down to just needing the red. I've seen one, and missed it. 2014 I barely touched.

Funny thing on the Favre autos...I ended up getting 2! I had the 1991 auto, and a 2001 auto, but ended up having to sell both for medical expenses. Had to give up something, and decided those were expendable lol. The two autos I would like to snare at some point are the 2015 museum SB auto, and an Upper Deck MVP auto. Will have to save for those someday.

I ignored Luck and Wilson this year. Just too many other needs came up...not a bad thing Smile

I didn't get close to to SB XXV, but I had some cool pickups! In case you haven't seen them, here's scans. They are also in my MVP thread.

Awesome, man, congrats on the adds! Sorry to hear about the Favres having to be released back into the wild. Sounds like you did some good work across the board, though.

RE: 2016 New Years Resolutions...
So Nate! Even though I haven't been on here in forever (I think since you began this thread), you know I had to come back for the update and to get in on the 2017 New Year thread. I'll jump over there next.

But first, the updates. From 2016...


1) I would like to move the Alstott PC to 85% completion. Last year I was able obtain 25% of his cards but I am now down to the final 15%--the nitty gritty--so 10% is probably realistic.
Success! I am at about 90% completion, I believe.

2) I still want to finish those auto sets and quad sets. Here's what I am working on:

AUTOS
1997 Press Pass autos--9 to go MAJOR FAIL!! Still 9 to go
1997 Mirror Image--1 to go!! FAIL--Still 1 to go
1998 Player's Ink Green--2 to go Fail--Still 2 to go, but they never popped up
1998 Player's Ink Silver--15 to go Small victory--down to 6 to go
1999 Donruss Preferred Signatures--4 to go Success--set complete
1999 Inkredible--2 to go (Walter Payton has an on card auto in this set, sooooo...yeah. It my be a while before this one is done.) BIG VICTORY--I landed the Walter Payton auto, but that stinkin' Ricky Williams just never pops up!!
2000 Finest Moments--10 to go Some movement--down to 7 to go--picked up the Franco Harris, John Elway and Isaac Bruce
2001 UD Game Gear autos--3 to go, but I honestly do not believe these three exist so it is likely that this set is already complete. Fail--but again, I do not believe the last three were ever issued.

QUADS
1999 Absolute Team Threads--10 to go Movement--only 3 to go
1999 Momentum Rookies--2 to go Movement--only 1 to go
2000 Tag Team--14 to go (these are proving difficult to find) Pfft--still 12 to go
2000 Contenders ULTIMATE Quads--8 to go (this set is a beast!) Slight movement--still 7 to go--I landed the Bucs/Vikings quad, #'d to 44

3) Complete 80% of the NFL leading rusher set...so another 25%. Fail. I dumped this project at about 60% completion. Made some nice additions to my HOF auto PC, though.

Welcome back! And congrats on all the completions! You had some pretty ambitious goals, and hit a bunch of them!

RE: 2016 New Years Resolutions...
My only resolution is to stop buying into group breaks for crappy boxes like Donruss base or Panini Complete.

...or 2-box Flawless case breaks for $180 where you have a 75% of getting zero hits.
