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.

After picking up samples from several different sets, its time to stick with my current decision...and not look back in 2013. Scott, what is in your Big 30 set?

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?
