Default Very good collecting year!

After having a down year in 2016, 2017 started out with a bang for me. I had a very solid collecting year for 2017.

In January, I added a large photo of Claude Berry, which originated from his estate. The photo was the source photo used in his 1912 Home Run Kisses card.

I added a couple of colored S74 silks in January and February of Red Dooin and Bill Bergen, respectively. I have been slowly working on a project showing all of the catchers that have both a colored S74s silk and a T205. Need just a couple of S74 silks to complete my run of catchers in the colored S74 set, namely Peaches Graham and Admiral Schlei. They are on my 2018 wantlist.

In March, I picked up a Peaches Graham E90-1 for an incredible price.

In April, I picked up an Ade Thoss T210-6 to complete my run of catchers "wearing chest protectors" in the T210 Old Mill set.

May's highlight was picking up a Chief Meyers art photo.

Picked up quite a few of the catchers in the P2 pin set this year, and also added a bunch of T205.

In addition, I added a super nice BF2 of Chief Meyers in November.

Modest goals for 2018:

Looking to add a few S74 catcher silks, a few T202 Chief Meyers Triple Folders, perhaps a T207 Irving Lewis.

In 2016 I hoped to get at least two of my 7 "B List" Old Judge players in 2017.

Through great fortune I managed to land an "A List" player (Jordan) and two "B List" players (Sowders and Davis) as well as a bonus HOFer (Duffy).

There are still 10 players on my "A List" and 5 players on my "B List," but almost all of them now are pipe dreams. I'll consider myself extremely lucky in 2018 to knock off two "B List" players in the coming 12 months, but I'll even settle for a couple of nice commons these days.

It was another great year with many additions and a few new hobby friends made. Best pickup to me was the T210-4 Dougherty I needed to finish off that Series set.

As far as 2018 goals I dont think I will cross off any major goals or finish off another Series. Unless a big lot becomes available at the right time. Im content just plugging along another year

Default 1952 signed set

2017 Goals for 1952 topps signed set

*I'd like to add two new signed HOF'ers, and add 10 or so others
was not able to add any HOF cards
sell the duplicates and cards that dont fit my goals!

sold a few, but bought a ton

I did add about 15 more, all tough names, including zoldak who passed in 66 and is very tough. 1/2 graded though mine is badly trimmed.

I'm Down to just 31 cards for completion

2018 goals

Add 5 new cards including one hofer

Sell duplicates and others in my sell pile

Down to just 2 low numbers to finish 1-310 but prices have been astronomical. I'll take adding any new 5 examples as a win!
