With the help of fellow bloggers, 50/50s, a lot of TTM requests, etc. we were able to finish the year with 184 cards. That is just under 19% of the entire 990 card set.
I've never really had any collecting goals before but looking ahead to 2010 there are a few things I would like to accomplish...
- Progress: 350/990 - I think 350 signed 2008 Topps cards by the end of 2010 is a realistic goal. Alot of thought was put into this number. It depends heavily on how many TTM requests I am able to send out for Spring Training and the regular season. This might end up being a little bit of a challenge but it is attainable.
- 2008 Topps Opening Day - I'm not officially starting this set and probably never will but I would like to get a few of these cards signed. Since I only have one set I won't be sending many TTM. I would like to get at least 10 of the 220 cards from this set signed this year.
- Custom Cards - Inspired by blogs like Goose Joak and Custom Card Blog, I want to try my hand at making my own custom cards. Well... my own custom 2008 Topps cards, of course.
- Keep My Blog Alive - There are many demands on my time. Family, friends, work, and even autographs all have priority over blogging. This goal is pretty simple. I want to keep updating my blog. I think I've done a pretty good job of that so far. The offical post count for 2009 ended at 179. For a little over 10 months of blogging, that's not too bad. If I can keep averaging a post every other day, 2010 will be a good year for My 2008 Topps Set Blog.
Thanks to everyone who's ever read my blog or helped me get a signed card ( bloggers and players included ). Happy New Year!
