What are your plans this year as far as your Pokemon card collection goes, what do you want to accomplish?
Would really love to get my PSA 10 English Crystal set finished.
I am also trying to collect every X/Y Japanese Promo that comes out, and so far I have all of them besides the Garchomp EX, so I am hoping to keep that up.
January: Pay off For Position Only set.
February-April: Pay for hotel for Worlds, save enough for transportation.
May-July: Save for food and random purchases at Worlds.
August: Buy something unique and cool at Worlds
September-November: Finish off Master Skyridge, Aquapolis, and Expedition sets. This I will also be working on in tiny pieces throughout the year.
December: All of my money in December pays for Christmas gifts for my family. So no Pokemon here!
I’ll also likely keep grading cards here and there randomly. If a mint/gem mint Crystal, Shining, or Gold Star comes up at the right price, I pick it up and grade it. That’s just something I’ve been doing this last year and have really enjoyed. So I’ll probably keep up with that.
I also really, really want to grade a PSA 10 Full Art Pikachu. I was pretty ticked about getting a 9 on the one I graded that I pulled from the package myself. So I’ll be seeking out a cheap, gem mint ungraded copy of that as well.
Those are my goals! Let’s hope I’m alive and well enough to make them happen.
Last year (it’s already 2014 here in Japan) my goal was to open all of the boxes of stuff in my warehouse to see what I’ve got. I managed to do that, but haven’t cataloged everything. So, this year’s goal is to have everything cataloged (and perhaps sold to collectors who want it more than me).
I might even let a Teach set or two go this year — for the right price
Well, first off, I want to get back into collecting. Between school, work, and lacrosse I have little time to do much of anything.
But, when I do get back into it, I want to focus on quality, not quantity. I will no long buy anything that is a “good” price. I will do my best to stick to my wishlist. I’m not that into trophies; don’t ask me why. Because of that, I am planning on focusing on semi rare Japanese promos. Ones that I’m interested in are the Natta Wake Pikachu and the Lugia/Ho-Oh ex PLAY set.
I also want to weed out a bunch of cheaper promos that I have (If anyone wants a great bulk deal on some promos let me know), and hopefully sell some of my impulse buys on eBay.
