Time to look back on my 2014 resolutions and evaluate them.
My 2/14 collection
600 cards by 2/14/14
800 cards by 12/31/14
5 new subjects in the binder (actually, it is down to 4 - 1 is already on the way via sportlots, and I figure that package should arrive sometime in 2014)
Most wanted additions to the binder - A blue Jim Kelly swatch, and an auto of Ayako Hamada
My Raptors Collection
500 total cards in the binder
Every Raptor w/ a card ever Frankenset complete, even if I have to use traded cards for some people
Add 1 large patch from a high end set
I'm only at about 400 cards. With the latest COMC order, I think I do have my Raptors Frankenset done, except for people who are making their first appearances in 2014 sets and potential people with Raptors cards who haven't played a game for them yet. Even then, I'll call this one done. And the large patch came from a group break that included Immaculate. I would have been happy with a Quincy Acy.
Start and finish my top 50 Ottawa Senators card countdown
And the big one for me - Resist the urge to build Topps flagship. Save the money for Heritage, since the pennant design is a favourite of mine.
Yes and yes to both. I did the Senators top 50 that I'd been planning on for a bit, and built Heritage as opposed to flagship. If Stad. Club drops in price for 2015 to a more Heritage or Archives level, I'll probably do that as well for next year.
So, 7 for 8. With no plans to make any goals for 2015.
When someone offers a trade on Listia with a "go through my tradelist and see what interests you", I'm going to hunt oddballs. I could post the SSPC of Ellis Valentine, but I'll go for this one for a simple reason.
