Look back: 2011

Another year has come to an end. I wanted to take a moment today to look back at the goals I posted last January in my "Look ahead: 2011" post. I'm proud to be able to say we completed all but one.

  • Progress: 495/990 - Only missed this one by a few. Our current total for our signed 08 Topps set sits at 469/990. Not bad.

  • 2008 Topps Gold Border Parallel - COMPLETED! We easily surpassed a dozen and currently have 18 signed 2008 Topps Gold Border Parallel cards.

  • Player Collection - COMPLETED! This one was easy. We officially launched our Luis Aparicio player collection last April and have had 32 Lil Luis-related posts.

  • Have a Contest - COMPLETED! Remember when we gave away that box of 2010 Bowman Chrome? Seems like a long time ago now.

  • Keep My Blog Alive - COMPLETED! There were at least three times the past few months when we went for more than two weeks without posting but My 2008 Topps Set Blog is still around.

2011 was another good collecting year. A lot of the stuff I buy doesn't make it's way to the blog. I've been posting a lot of non-2008 Topps stuff lately and I expect that to continue into 2012.
