1 - Organization. I planned on constructing a long, low shelf for holding binders, as well as a temp storage and sorting table. Yeah - I haven't even bought the wood for the thing. I did bring up an unused bookshelf from the basement to help with storing binders. I also wanted to get my Sox Box into Zistle. With the Beckett bullsh*t and Zistle, I am a bit glad I never did this, though I am still torn of what to do in regard to an online organization. But all in all, big ol' D on this one.
2 - Sets. I didn't build 2016 flagship cuz it SUCKED! I am working to complete GQ and A&G. Did a pass on Heritage. So I did okay in regard to 2016 sets. I had planned on hitting hard on my 1964 build, but I didn't secure any of the big cards. Just no money to pick them up. How about a C- on this one?
3 - Player Projects. Petrick is at 93 cards. I added a few, but still short. I did add some to Fox and Aparicio. Plus I started a couple player collections, but moved well on them. I'm hard on myself, but let's score this B.
4 - Cost. F. Moving on.
5 - Blog. I think I am at a little over 100 posts here this year. 2016 was not only rough at the end, but most of the year for me. I have no idea how 2017 will be personally - wait and see. I still have yet to resurrect the 1964 blog. I need to get on that. Low C, high D.
6 - Collection. I think I had fun with it this year. I like my cards and enjoy appreciating them. I can appreciate them more, though. B-.
The frankenset build has stalled. I added some cards, but no big purchases. Well, I did have one purchase of 21 cards that was delivered to the wrong address and the a-hole that received them never sent them to the right address. I hope the envelope had Anthrax.
Overall, I think I score myself a C-. I could do better. So what does 2017 look like?
A - 1964 set. I need to push this forward. I'm being lazy and unfocused.
B - Other sets. GQ and A&G for sure. ZERO flagship, or should I call it flagshit, except for the Sox team set. Doubt I'll work on anything else baseball wise. UD hockey will be a build as well.
C - Player Projects. I think they are fine. Would like to knock out the Fox project in 2017. His '51 Bowman rookie is the big buy, as is the Red Heart. I can also knock out my Lollar project with a couple purchases I just need to make.
D - Blog. Stay on it and stay focused. Maybe I could actually post an average of every other day?
E - Organization. I have other house projects to work on, but I would really like to build that long bookcase. With the right vacation time and sale at the building supply store.....
F - Cost. Hey Jeff - did you know if you built the right purchase at Sportlots or Just Commons, it would be like a repack box mailed to your house with EVERY card an addition to your collection? No - well remember that, you lack of focus dumbass.
I guess when it comes down to it - focus.
