2012 is here and with it a brand new year of collecting. The baseball card collecting season is about to heat up with products from Panini and Topps with new cards of your favorite players and prospects coming out. The NBA basketball season has started with new products coming from Panini, and we are heading towards the meat and potatoes of hockey season. Not to mention, the best part of the football collecting season is also right on our doorstep. It’s a great time to be a collector.
With that, what are your collecting resolutions or goals for this year? Maybe you want to try and super collect a player, complete a set, or bust as much wax as humanly possible?
My collecting resolution is just to continue what I have been doing and try not to deviate too far from it. I want to pick up some much needed autographs from players that I collect and do not have autographed cards from yet. Josh Freeman, Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Adrian Gonzalez, and a bunch of Trailblazers are still on my target list. I also may try and complete a set of something this year. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a set project to work on so maybe I will try it out with Topps Series I baseball? We’ll see what happens there.
I also have a few blog resolutions. I’d like to get the other card companies on board with what I’m doing here. Open more boxes for review and give away more of the contents would be great. I’d also like to maybe expand into a monthly podcast or something along those lines. Would you be interested in hearing me talk about sports cards and recapping some posts from the site every month? I could read emails, give away prizes, bring up some comments you guys post…maybe make it 30 to 60 minutes? If I have the interest maybe that would be great.
What about you? Tell me your resolutions in the hobby.
