I'm not going to go overboard with my card collecting resolutions this year. There are a few things that I'd like to do, and if the last quarter of 2014 is any indication, I believe that I can complete and/or start these items.
1. Finish the SNI project.
Good ol' Edwin Encarnacion is serial # 173, and is one of the 1294 cards that I have towards the set. My next COMC delivery, which should be sometime next week, will knock the want list below 200 cards. The final push is on, and I have a feeling that as the set nears completion things should get interesting.
2. Finish the 1964 Topps set
As of this writing, I still need 99 cards. When I receive my next COMC order, that will drop to 90.
Forty out of the ninety are the dreaded high numbers. A bargain hunting I will go. It will be very nice to finish this set and be able to show it off sometime during 2015.
3. Clean up/organize my player collections
Neglected for the past 2-3 months, I need to spend a weekend going through both my Thome and Sakic collections, and get them fully in order. It's bad.
I also want to start a Brett Lawrie PC this year. I can do this now that he's no longer a Blue Jay. Yea, I'm weird like that. Stay tuned.
If these three items don't keep me busy enough through 2015, then there's always other vintage sets such as '73 & '59 Topps to work on.
First 3 things first. Let's see if I can stick with that credo.
Have a great 2015 everyone.
