I wanted to go ahead and start a new thread for 2013. I think some people got confused with the other thread by posting their 2013 goals, but that thread was for 2012.

I have 3 collecting goals - finish '54, '55 and '56 Topps sets. Here is what I lack:

1954 Topps Baseball:
128 Hank Aaron RC

1955 Topps Baseball:
2 Ted Williams
47 Hank Aaron
123 Sandy Koufax RC
164 Roberto Clemente RC
194 Willie Mays
210 Duke Snider

1956 Topps Baseball:
135 Mickey Mantle

I think this year needs to be a year of focus for me. Once the focus is figured out, sort through everything for a big sell off to help finance the focus.

On a positive note, I did win a white whale (not received yet) recently, that I have been chasing for a couple of years. It would certainly land in the focus category.

I want to try and get to 100% of the 58 Topps set if possible. That is if I can convince SGC to remove the Card #433b Poncho Herrera card. Just cant see paying that much for that card.

I just checked and its not included in the PSA basic set, not that SGC should always follow them but imo now way should an error be included in a basic set. Call earl or michael, I do know they have issues with the registry and I am not sure they can delete a card from an established set, I know adding them is a nightmare.

Here are my top 3-

1. Knock out 1 really tough Clemente (58 Kahns, 62 Pittsburgh Exhibit, 68 Topps 3D, 63 Bazooka Box, 69 Transogram full box and figure, etc list is about 25 cards I am looking for)

2. Continue to work on completing my exhibit run, I want to get under 60 cards needed and hope to complete 2 of the 8 sets I have close!

3. Look to add 3 cards to my Big 30 set, continue to work on a few of my other small projects while I wait for the biggies I am looking for. I need to focus much more here in 2013.

Hi Matt,

My Big 30 set is a collection of 30 cards of my all time favorite players in all sports. I follow some pretty simple rules I only allow two cards max from any one set, the card has to be one of my favorites of that player (no fillers), I do allow changes in the cards if I find one I like more but once I hit 30 cards I must remove a card to add a new one. I currently only have 12 of the cards and have been adding 1-3 for the last couple years.

To me its a fun way to focus on my favorite players and try to get one special card of each.

Here is my current list -
1 Anson 1887 Any/Mayo
2 Kid Nichols/Ward 1888 Any/OJ
3 Cy Young 1911 T206
4 Christy Matthewson 1908 E102
5 Fred Clark 1910 Tip Top

6 Pie Traynor 1933 E120
7 Paul Waner 1923 Zeenut
8 Lloyd Waner 1933 George Miller
9 Ty Cobb (Blue) 1910-11 M116

10 Walter Johnson 1917 E135
11 Honus Wagner 1910 E92 (Dockman)
12 Babe Ruth 1932 US Caramel
13 Lou Gehrig 1934 Goudey
14 Ted Williams 1954 Bowman
15 Jackie Robinson 1949 Leaf
16 Hank Aaron 1954 Topps
17 Willie Mays 1951 Bowman
18 Mickey Mantle 1956 Topps
19 Nolan Ryan 1969 Topps

Football
20 Red Grange 1933 Sports King
21 Jim Thorpe 1955 Topps AA

22 Four Horseman 1955 Topps AA
23 Jim Brown 1958 Topps
24 Joe Green 1971 Topps

Basketball
25 Bill Russell 1961 Fleer
26 Oscar Robinson 1961 Fleer
27 Michael Jordan 1985 Fleer

Hockey
28 Wayne Gretzky 81-82 Topps
29 Mario 85-86 OPC


Boxing
30 Joe Louis 1948 Leaf

Blackie- My final decision is 1951 Bowman, at least it is this month

Scott- that is going to be an awesome collection. I like all of your choices, except the Leaf Robinson. My favorite is the 1953 Topps, it is a much nicer looking card; I know I miss having the one I used to.

What condition are you looking for on the '51 Bowman, and are you going for raw or graded?

So far I have two that are SGC 96. I got one SGC 92, which I bought on Ebay. The listing picture was tiny and fuzzy, so I could not tell how the centering was until I had it in hand. I will be re-baying that one. \:\( However, it was the picture on this card that I liked so much I chose to do the set.

I have been waffling and wavering about what to do post '53 Topps Baseball. I had always planned to work my way through all the 1950s sets, but got distracted with thoughts of Bowman, especially '50 Bowman baseball, which is nice. I think I have regained my focus and will stick with '54 Topps and do a little tweaking and upgrading in my '53 set. When we talk about our goals this time next year, I expect to be still working on the same stuff just further down the road. I will be collecting in the 5-6.5 range with graded stars and mostly raw commons. That's pretty much how I did the '53 set. There's just something about 1950s Topps baseball cards!!
