This year FLEW by way too fast for me. It was a tough year to say the least, but here we are going to wake up tomorrow (hopefully) and be participating in 2016. I will keep this post limited to just the 5 "goals" I set and posted 1 year ago.
#1) Not to miss a week without a post. I could say I failed, but I won't. I managed to squeak out 170 posts this year counting this one. Down from the 204 I had last year. Of course most of that came before October (4 posts), November had just 5, and closing December out with 8.
#2) No new "mini" collections. Again, I could say I failed, but again I won't. My goal was to clear out the tons of mini collections and I started with a card dump, and I still have boxes sitting here waiting to be mailed for Part Two of that dump. I did separate a couple of others away from their cardboard prisons to put in their own private binders. So here I rationalize the 2 new mini collections which you will see in the upcoming year. As a result I began to focus on set building as well, and I accomplished quite a bit there.
#3) Focus on getting the Braves Team sets done fast. I didn't complete the base team sets well not all of them anyway. But as soon as they hit I scooped most of them up, and I am very satisfied with how that worked. Of course the Bowman Draft hit yesterday and several Braves I will need to grab up.
#4) Updating my want pages, especially 2008-2015. BIG "F". The only thing I got right here was 2015 and I still need to finalize that one this week hopefully.
#5) Have more fun collecting, and hit some shows. A+ here. I hit my first show in 20 years this summer. It was a small show, but I made the drive a second time and came home with 106,000+ cards on July 4th. It took 5 months to sort those things out, and some of them albeit sorted still do not have a home.
Overall, I pass on 4 and fail on 1. Simple math makes it an 80 (with the curve and all, lol).
I wish all of you a safe and Happy New Year!
