Happy New Year!
I didn't do very well on my goals this year. Here are my results:
Goal - Send out 150 through the mail requests - Result - I only sent out 113 this year.I had 2 failures and I'm still waiting on 18 to come back, for a success rate of 82%. I still expect to get several of the outstanding requests back over the next few weeks.
Goal - Add 50 cards to my 1963 set. Result - I came close. I added 44.
Goal - Add 2 more cards to my 1958 set. Result - I didn't add any new 1958 Topps this year!
Goal - Add 5 more cards to my 1965 set. Result - I only added 2.
Goal - Add 10 more cards to my 1972 Topps set. Result - I exceeded this goal by adding 17 cards to the set.
Goal - Add 2 more signed bobbleheads to my collection. Result - I'm going to count this as a success. I sent in a Jim Kaat bobblehead to a Tom Orr signing back in July. I also had a Mike Pagilarulo signed via an SCN contact last weekend, which I should receive back next week.
Goal - Add 5 more signed magazines to my collection. Result - I bought a Warren Spahn signed magazine early in the year, but I think that was about it. I didn't send out any through the mail.
I didn't really do that well this year. I need to think a bit about my 2016 goals before I post them, but should do that later today or by the end of the weekend at the latest.
