2015 Collecting Goals

2014 might have been my most successful collecting year yet.  I added a lot of great cards to my collection highlighted by completing several Charlie Morton rainbows (2014 Topps, 2002 Bowman Chrome) along with several 1/1s of Charlie but none were more important than this 2012 Topps 24K Gold Embedded card.

I completed the 1965, 1969, 1971, and 1972 Topps Team Sets.

I managed to complete half of the Tony Sanchez Slabbed 9.5 2009 Bowman Chrome Auto challenge

I got a bunch of Bowman Black autos of all the Pirates I wanted including

I added well over 36 Jason Bay cards to the collection, but sadly fell short for Andy Van Slyke and Ryan Doumit.

I added my 75th unique Andrew McCutchen certified autograph to the collection with the following additions in 2014:
2014 Donruss Die Cut Elite Status /25
2005 Topps Chrome Refractor BGS 9.5
2012 Bowman Chrome Dual Auto with George Springer /25
2013 Panini Team USA /25
2013 Topps Museum Jumbo Jersey/AUTO /10
2008 Just Minors Black /25
2014 Topps Dual Auto/Dual Patch Face of Franchise with Gerrit Cole /5
2014 Panini Private Signings Fall Heroes /10

The Gerrit Cole/Andrew McCutchen Dual Auto/Dual Patch is just absolutely amazing!!!!

I added an autograph of a Hall of Famer in Pittsburgh Gear (Goose Gossage)

My 2015 Collecting Goals will be pretty similar to the 2014 Goals.

I'd like to add another Hall of Famer Pittsburgh Pirate Autograph to the Collection
Max Carey, Paul Waner, Roberto Clemente, Honus Wagner, Arky Vaughan, Pie Traynor, Fred Clarke, and Vic Willis top the list

I would like to complete at least two more team sets for my Flagship Topps sets.  1969-2014 are all complete along with 1965 which I completed in 2014.  That leaves 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1964, 1966, 1967,  and 1968.

Continue to add any new Charlie Morton cards and unique items to the collection (excluding 1/1s there is only 1 Charlie Morton card not in my collection)

Add 2 Pittsburgh Steelers in the Hall of Fame autographs to my collection.

Add a Jerome Bettis autograph to my collection

Continue my yearly reverse box of Topps Tribute along with 1 other product

Have a certified autograph of every Pirate who played in the 2013 Wild Card "Blackout" Game against the Reds. (needs: Travis Snider, Tony Watson, Fransisco Liriano, Marlon Byrd, Clint Barmes)

Add 1 more Tony Sanchez 2009 Bowman Chrome BGS9.5+ to the collection

Add 100 new Andrew McCutchen cards to the collection.

Add BowmanBlack autographs to the collection as desired

Complete 2015 Pirates team sets for flagship Topps, Allen & Ginter, Topps Heritage, Gypsy Queen
