My 2016 Collecting Goals

I hope to do better in 2016 than I did in 2015.  Here is what I hope to accomplish:

Goal - Add 3 cards to my signed 1958 Topps set.  These will most likely have to be purchases since I think I've pretty well exhausted my ttm options.

Goal - Add 10 cards to my 1963 Topps set.  This should be reasonable, and I think I can get most of them ttm, but they will require fees.

Goal - Add 5 cards to my 1965 Topps set.  Probably purchases for this one too, but there might be a few multi-player rookie cards I haven't sent out yet that I could try.

Goal - Add 10 cards to my 1972 Topps set.  I think I can get them ttm, but I need ot buy some rather expensive high number cards to get this done.

Goal - Add 75 cards to my 1978 Topps set.  As long as I stay motivated on sending out ttm requests, this should be a reasonable goal.

Goal - Send out at least 150 ttm requests.

Goal - Get 2 bobbleheads signed.  Since I'm not going to TwinsFest this year, this one might be a challenge.  I really only have a handful left that need to be signed.

Goal - Get 3 magazines signed ttm.  Should be pretty easy, but will probably have to be magazines from the 60's or 70's, rather than the ones from the 50's I've sent in the past.

I think that's about it.

Anyone else have specific collecting goals for the year?

Hi Zane! Yeah, I"m just not fired up for TwinsFest this year. Since it's so much work, I'm deciding to just skip it. That's the plan so far anyway. I guess if they add someone I really want to meet than I could change my mind.

i know what you mean, there has been a few years where the week of I really had nothing lined up or anyone that i really need. ive started getting the all star wine bottles signed though so its easier to get them signed at TF then ST or at the stadium and most of the players get a kick out of them.
