Update on 2011 Collecting Goals

The year is half over so it's time to update my progress on my 2011 collecting goals.
  1. Send out 250 requests through the mail - As of today I have sent out 151 requests this year.  Hitting 250 won't be a problem but I have to keep at it.
  2. Reach 300 signed 1972 Topps cards - I think I'm at about 280 or so.  I am going by the images files listed on my web site, but there are a few cards that have multiple signatures that I might be counting as separate cards.  I really need to get the actual cards out and count them.  300 signed cards by the end of the year is very achievable.
  3. Add 5 more signed bobbleheads to my 1987 Twins bobblehead collection.  So far I've added 4: George Frazier, Dan Schatzeder, Keith Atherton and Jeff Reardon.  I still need to add one more by the end of the year and will need to make it a priority to keep my eyes out for an opportunity.
  4. Finish the 10 possible John Wheeldon portraits (out of 12) -   I got Rich Reese back a while ago.  I need George Mitterwald and Ron Perranoski, and need to buy better copies of their portraits.  The ones I have are in pretty rough shape. Unfortunately, Harmon Killebrew passed away.
