Unsure where we will be moving next year, I have spent a good amount of time trying to figure out which direction to take the collection.
With money still being quite short, I figured I should lower my expectations for the coming year.
Originally, my primary goal was to finally reach the 1,000 Cal card mark. But with over 200 cards needed to hit 1,000 and the cost of his cards, I figure I will settle for 50-100 new Ripkens in the new year. And as I get each new Ripken I will do my best to remember to blog about each one.
Next is the Palmer and Brooks collection. Already over 200 Palmers and 150 Brooks, I figured why not try to add 20-25 to each collection.
And just to get a good mix, let’s try and reach 150+ different Ray Lewis cards. So I roughly need about 50 more.
So in total I have the realistic goal of roughly 200 new cards in my collection in 2013. Which feels quite manageable to me. Works out to about 4 cards per week!
