2015 Collecting Goals

Collecting goals for 2015. Coming up with goals isn’t an easy task. Yes, one could come up with a list of goals pretty easily but to come up with tasks that are achievable and meaningful isn’t as easy as it may seem. So here is a stab at collecting goals for 2015.

1. Add 100 pre-2015 Yadi cards to our collection.

2. Add 75 2015 Yadi cards to our collection.

As with goal #1 this is doable but probably just barely as the supply is low and the demand high and as any economist knows this isn’t an inexpensive proposition.

3. Add a pre-WWI Cardinals’ card to our collection (note this card must be in at least good condition).

4. Grow our Cardinals’ oddball collection.

I love oddballs-yeah there are plenty in the 1990s but there are some great ones from all decades.

5. Complete five Topps Cardinals Regular team sets from the 1960s and 70s.

I am near to completing the 1966 team set, the 1977 set is complete and I am almost finished with the 1975, 1976, 1978, and 1979 sets. Plus when I start to organize our collection I will be able to check off several vintage cards from our want list.

6. Complete one vintage Bowman Cardinals’ team set.

For the record I love the Bowman sets, their art-work, paper, and even their size I find appealing.

7. Increase our vintage Topps inserts-deckle, coins, supers, poster, stamps, rub-offs for example.

The Lou Brock sticker purchased a few days ago completes the 1977 Topps Cardinals Sticker team set. Ok, there were only two Cardinals to pick up but these are hella cool and remind me of stickers I had back in the '70s.

8. Organize, organize organize. Living in California we don’t have basements so there is no “man cave” to display our collection-so I am in a quandary as what to do. Perhaps boxes, and pages, or just boxes? I do know there is no way to have more then a couple of binders of cards.

9. Visit at least two flea markets in this area.

I am hopeful that I will be able to hit the De Anza flea market in a couple of weeks.

10. Send some cards to COMC.

I have put a couple of cards on Listia but the only bids are for a couple of credits so I am not sure how long Listia will last.

11. Still have fun! I wouldn't do this with out having fun.
