Well, last night as I was watching the New Year festivities on television, I did some surfing on the Internet and scored the last two cards I needed, Bob Uecker and Phil Niekro, to complete my 1964 Topps set! It is always a great feeling to set a goal and be able to accomplish it. Now, as we move into 2013, it is time to set goals for this year. Here is what I have come up with:
1) Complete the 1967 Topps set. I'm currently 11 cards away and need the big stars Brooks Robinson and Tom Seaver. One card a month and this set will be complete.
2) Complete the 1966 Topps set. I'm currently 55 cards away (mostly high numbers needed) and if I were to complete both the 1966 and 1967 Topps sets, I'll have a complete Topps set run in EX or better condition from 1964 to present. One card per week is about all I need.
3) Complete the 1954 Topps set in PSA 3 or better. Currently, I have 29.6% of this set so I have a lot of work to do with this one if I want to have it complete by year end. If I can get about 3 or 4 cards per week, I should be able to reach that goal.
So there are my card collecting goals for 2013! As you know, I'll be charting my progress here on my blog.
