Default Football Collecting Goals for 2018

What kind of goals do you guys have for football collecting in 2018? I am pretty sure mine will be miniscule compared to many of yours but here's mine:

1. finish 1965 Philadelphia

2. Get back to working on an AFL set (or two) such as '64 Topps or '63 Fleer or maybe both.

3. Be on the lookout for 60s Chargers memorabilia.

Ok, now you guys step up and overwhelm me!

Since Iíve stepped away from football (Iíve moved to vintage racing and T206), itís easier to find and complete goals.

1) Iíd like to pick up a couple of National Chicle cards. I only have one, so it should be easy to get a couple of new ones.

2) Iíd like to get to 80% complete on my 1955 All-American set. Iím at 69% currently.

I hope that every is having a wonderful holiday season. Happy collecting!

I'm going to keep working on putting my sets together.

1963 Fleer I still need three cards. Then I found out some cards come with and without a red stripe on the back so I will try to hunt for those too.

1948 and 1949 Leaf sets I need to get more serious about collecting these.

1961 Nu Card I only need about 15 these are cheap so I should be able to finish this set off.

Also keep plugging away at the '60s Topps insert sets I'm working on.

I picked up some '48-'52 football exhibits and I want more of those.

Of course I plan on being in Cleveland for the National this summer too.

Kin,

I have some decent T206s I would be willing to sell if you are interested. I dabbled in them a bit. I want to stick to football now.

I collect NFL HOF rookies. Iím about 45% of the way through. Iím doing pretty well in the 40s, 50s, 80s and 90s. Iíd like to finish off the 50s and get to about 60-65% complete in 2018!

I achieved a long term goal in 2017 - completing my run of all nationally distributed, mainstream football cards produced between 1888 and 1988. The run includes 15,208 cards from the following card sets: 1888 Goodwin Champions, 1894 Mayo, 1926 Spalding, 1933 Sport Kings, 1935 National Chicle, 1948-49 Leaf, 1948-1988 Topps, 1948-1955 Bowman, 1960-1963 & 1976-1988 Fleer, 1961 Nu-Card, 1951 Berk Ross, 1964-1967 Philadelphia. Not sure I will ever top this goal!

This year I'm working on adding to my Jim Thorpe, Red Grange, Bronko Nagurski, Benny Friedman items and just generally enjoying the hobby! Also hunting for any interesting pre-war items from early NFL teams (particularly the Pottsville Maroons), working on oddball sets, and 1800s college football cabinet cards / programs.

For me itís finishing my mid grade psa 1952 bowman set, all I need are Bobby Dillon and Burt reichichar so that should happen.

I also want to keep plugging away at my low grade chicle set. I have all the Hofíers and 7 of the 12 high numbers but this is a slow project for me and if I can add 2 or 3 high numbers and 2 or 3 others I will be happy.

Iím also working on collecting the 1997 essential credentials hofíers so if I can add any of those that will be great. And always looking for any mayoís I donít have but would be surprised to add more than one if any this year. An 1888 Beecher would be great too but thatís probably a stretch goal for me.

My biggest goal and I really hope to meet it is to make it out to the National and meet a few of you guys this year. I really think Iíll make it out there so as the event gets closer Iíd love to make plans to say hi to whomever is on the board and would like to visit for awhile.

As I do every year, I am going to build off of last year's goals, here are my football collecting goals for 2018.

- Pickup 3 more key football HOF Rookie cards (the list is getting short)
- Pickup at least 20 new additions to my Buffalo Bills team sets on the PSA Registry (currently 350/461)
- Upgrade 1 item in my All Time Buffalo Bills PSA Set Registry set
- Obtain 2 Joe Ferguson (Bills QB) special card collectibles, preferably unopened packs with him showing on top or Topps Vault type items
- Attend the National with my 9 y/o son, it will be his first...this is my most important goal!
