Resolutions? We Don't Need No Stinkin' Resolutions!

I'm not a huge New Years resolutions maker. I don't like being one of those phonies that makes some fancy resolution only to fail 3 weeks later. Last year (2015) I had a sort of resolution/goal that went uncompleted my Strive for '65 Topps Baseball set build. Bummed that is not complete. It would have been great to have it done for when I wanted ON the 50th Anniversary. Now it is the 51st Anniversary will I get it completed? Who knows?

For this year (2016) I will continue to pursue that set build, plus from the 2015 Topps Archives Baseball I want at least the 10 Will Ferrell inserts. The base set not the super overpriced autograph versions but the regular base cards. An auto card would be great but I don't see those going for cheap. It seems the only people buying them are those that want to keep it, and those who want to sell it at a high-price. So what else is new? I don't want to spend more than about $5 per card and most of them I have been seeing for $8-10 minimum. So I need all ten of those: (WF-#) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 on my standard real cheap. On Ebay I bid on the A's card (WF-1) $2.99 + $3 shipping since I had planned on bidding on a partial set of the other 9.

Oh and I guess I should try to complete my 2003 Bazooka Joe subset.

I also have two ancient trade commitments maybe more, and three or four lingering promises of sending out contest winnings. So I need to try concentrating on those as well. I'd like to be able to occasionally send out some surprise packages and PWEs.

I really need to get my card hoard organized and put mostly in binders. That or any organizing will take sometime.


  1. Lol. I'll probably be one of those phonies who fails within a few weeks. I've set a budget for myself... and it's only two weeks and I'm already struggling. I've thought about putting together that Ferrell set too. I think I'm halfway there. Best of luck on yours.

  2. Goodluck with the 65's. I'm in pretty deep on the 67 set. Hopefully this year
