Happy New Years! 2014 Goals

Happy New Years Ginter Mafia!

I figured it was worth making a few goals, and the only real way to do that is to put them down on paper. Er, electronic paper. I'll try and keep updating to see how things are progressing, maybe once every few months.

Goal 1) Win 6 contests.

Those that know me, know that I love free stuff. The one free thing that I love most is free cards. I did pretty well last year, winning several contests from Panini and even one from Beckett. This year, we're shooting for six total contest wins. That's one per two months. Not a lot of control over this, per se, other than entering as many as I can. It'll be fun. Oh, and it helps that I've already got the first one under my belt -- nabbed a #PaniniWildCard win during the Chargers/Bengals game on Twitter this afternoon!

Goal 2) Win Gint-A-Cuffs

Yeah, after last year's embarrassing (albeit 'successful'?) showing, this year we're going to shoot for the best showing ever. Oh, and I have to beat my wife. At Gint-A-Cuffs, you naughty people!

Goal 3) Complete my base, inserts, and mini sets of 2011, 2012, and 2013 Ginter.

Ambitious, so say the least. I have a lot of progress to go, but I think we can get her done, and if not make some serious progress.

Goal 4) Pull my first non-printing plate 1/1

Yeah, this is entirely luck based, but it is inevitable!

Goal 5) Complete 120 trades

That's 10 a month. Easy day.

Goal 6) Pay it forward at least 3 times.

Exactly what it says.

Goal 7) Trade up/buy/whatever to an unripped RIP card via the Ginter Project

I think 7 goals is a good start. I'll probably add to it later, but wanted to get something started.

As always, keep it in the family.
