So, with the start of the new year, it is time to see how I did, hobby wise, in 2013. So, let's take a look:
Sets I intended to finish:
- All the Insert sets to 2004 Fleer Greats of the Game, except the Announcing Greats - Well, I didn't finish the Forever insert set, but I did actually finish the Announcing Greats inserts. So, I consider this one achieved even though I have a different incomplete insert set than I had figured.
- 1971 - Done!
- 1973 - I did not finish this set.
- 1963 Fleer - Done!
- 1960 and 1961 Fleer - I am now only 9 cards away from completing 1960.
- 2009 through 2011 Obak - I actually completed 2010 and 2011 Obak.
- Continue to work on my Paul Blair and Johnny Antonelli player collections - I had wanted to add more OPC Blair's and a 1950 Bowman Antonelli to my player collections. I didn't do either. But I did add a few cards to both player collections in 2013.
- 1963 Fleer autograph project - I started 2013 with 16 of these cards autographed. I am entering 2014 at 26. I'd call that a success.
- 1975 Topps - I added a few 75s here and there, but no serious activity
- 1959 Fleer Ted Williams - I did start this set with a splurge purchase during the fall. I have 33 of the 80 cards and am working a trade for some more.
- 1959 Fleer Three Stooges - did not start.
