A few 2017 highlights. As far as 2018 goals? I plan on not having any since I can't seem to stick with the ones I start out with anyway.

I'm embarrassed to post in this thread after the stuff everybody is putting up. But to put my embarrassment into perspective, I just got into vintage cards in August when I picked up my first.

I didn't have any goals coming into 2017. But I did sell out of all of my modern cards, with the exception of my 2 PCs (Tyrell Jenkins and Rickey Dudley) and Rangers collection. The Rangers collection will be going as well as soon as I can figure out the best way to move it.

All that said, I picked up my first vintage card in August and now am up to a 3-row shoebox of vintage cards. They're all sorted by year, priced, sleeved and top loaded.

I was also able to put together my first vintage set - 1974 Topps baseball. Putting in that final card a few months back felt really nice. But now I'm ready to break it up, sell all the cards and upgrade to another year. I realize I love to put sets together, break them down and try to put together a set that's a little older. My ultimate goal is to get up to a 1957 complete set.

So I guess my 2018 goals are just to continue building my vintage collection. I just paid for my biggest card yet - a 1961 Topps Roger Maris. It should be here later this week or early next and will be a good start to my 2018 collecting.

I also want to try and piece together another set as I did the '74 set. I wound up spending a grand total of $80 on it by trading modern for some of the bigger names. Will hopefully sell the cards from the '74 set for a profit and use the money to piece together a set from the earlier 70s, possibly late 1960s.

As I said, I'm just getting going into vintage and love the trading and upgrading aspect of the hobby. I hope I can continue to do that.
I love to trade/buy/sell vintage cards. Will trade any cards I list FS/FT for any of my needs. Also, I charge exact shipping on top of my asking prices.

I am still formulating my goals for 2018, but among other things I would like to:

1. Obtain an E107 Delahanty within my budget;

2. Obtain an Old Judge Deacon White;

3. Get a Cracker Jack Matty and Wagner;

4. Upgrade some cards from my Aguilitas Segundas set;

5. Reacquire a couple of Cobb poses I traded away in 2017; and

6. Continue culling my collection and get rid of stuff I'm no longer interested in.

My top acquisitions this year are as follows:

2017 Goals:
1959-1963 Fleer Sets - Done
1952 Red Man - Done
1954 Bowman - Done
1955 Bowman - Done
1970-1974 Topps Basketball - Did not do
1970-1977 Topps Football - Did not do

2018 Goals
1953 Topps Complete Set - with Slabbed Mantle, Mays, Paige, and Robinson (or buy all except those and buy those 4 separately)
1952 Bowman Complete Set - with Slabbed Mantle
1953-1955 Red Man Sets
1970-1974 Topps Basketball - Complete preferably in a lot with multiple sets

The year is finishing strong at work. How I do on that list will be directly proportional to the bonus payout in late February. Fingers Crossed!

Apparently I didn't make a list of goals for 2017, however, below are my goals for 2018.

1) Finish my e93 set - still looking for a nice lower grade Cobb
2) Add at least 4 more cards to my e92 Nadja set. Currently need 16 to complete the set of known cards. Currently have a lead on 1.
3) Add 1 or 2 more of the harder/more expensive cards to the T222 set such as a Henry, Alexander, Shulte, Magee, etc
4) Add another E92 Red Crofts Candy, Menagerie, or Prizefighter
5) Pick up an M110, T3 top tier HOFer, N566, N142, or similar

I am not sure if I had any set goals for 2017. I did finish my 1964 stand ups HOF set. I also added several pre war HOF cards.

I would like to add a few of the following in 2018:
1952 Topps Mays PSA 6
1941 Playball Dimaggio or Williams PSA 6
1933 Sport Kings Ruth PSA 4
T205 Young PSA 4
Finish my 52 Red Man set in PSA 6
Diamond Stars Medwick PSA 4 or 5

Good luck to everyone.

Thanks man! I picked up a Heinie Zimmerman, a Bob Bescher, and a Jean Dubuc. That brings me up to about 30 T206 player game used bats...

I tend to sell things in order to buy other things I want more at the time, but as I don't generally pick up anything I didn't want in the first place I end up with some holes in my collection checklist that weren't previously there. I'd like to be able to mark some of these off the checklist once again.

W600 Eddie Collins
1907 Cobb postcard
D359 type
E126 Babe Ruth
E126 Tris Speaker
T207 blank back
Tango Eggs type
T211 type
T216 Virginia Extra type
D380 type
1 or more E94 George Close overprint types
Haffner's Tayto-Loaf type
1 or more Holland Creameries Senators
Mel Ott rookie card (Kashin or L.N.)
Shonen Ruth postcard
Joe DiMaggio rookie (R312 or V355)
1938 Sawyer Biscuits type
Jackie Robinson rookie (D302 or D305)
1951 Bowman Mays
1955 Topps Clemente
1957 Topps Bill Russell
