2019 Collecting Goals

Recommended Posts

Looking to complete my 1953 and 2019 Topps Tiger team sets.  Just finished 1954 with some Christmas money.    I might also dabble in 1952 depending on how it goes with the 3 high numbers.

What are your collecting goals for the New Year?

Steve, how did you do on your goals this year?

I did not make a list of goals but did have several highlights:

** Made it to the National with tigerjim65 this year

** Obtained about 150 index cards of past Tigers

** Completed my 1954 Bowman set (less the Ted Williams next to impossible card)

**Readjusted my collecting focus and am s l o w l y getting rid of those outside of it

Nice on adjusting your focus!   Did that around 02 or 03 and absolutely love my collection now.  Also bet the 54 Bowmans are cool.   I stopped doing index cards several years ago.  

I completed both goals!   I finished up 1953 in mid-October which was within about a week of ordering the 2019 team set and started on 52.

 

My goal for 2020 is to get 1/2 way through 52 knowing that the high numbers are going to be almost impossible to find.

Easy to find, just incredibly expensive.

Had no idea there was a collector's forum. I don't really have a focus. I collect anything Tigers, mostly 70s and earlier, all the way back to t205 and t206. Although I wish I had enough cash for some Old Judge or even Allen & Ginter. I collect basketball and football as well, but mostly baseball. Mostly mid-grade - I'm a collector and don't have much cash. My favorite 2019 purchases are probably a psa 6 1955 Kaline Topps Doubleheader and  psa 3 t201 mecca double folder Walter Johnson. I also collect oddball stuff and have been collecting 1970 chemtoy and 1973 topps candy lid Tigers for forever

Off and running to my 2020 goals of getting 1/2 way through 1952 (and then eventually the 2020 Topps)   The Kell is really nice and the other 3 are somewhat off-condition.
