Anyway, so much for excuses. Here's my update:
- Send out 250 requests through the mail - As of today I have sent out 178 requests this year. Hitting 250 is looking to be a challenging goal, especially since I don't have too many cards to send out.
- Reach 300 signed 1972 Topps cards - I'm at 289 right now. 300 signed cards by the end of the year is very achievable.
- 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. I have recently sent out three bobbleheads from the 1991 set I recently received, but I guess that doesn't count.
- 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. Unfortunately, Harmon Killebrew passed away. I sent out the George Mitterwald portrait today along with a couple of 1972 Topps. I'll send out the Perranoski on Monday.
