My bucket list for 2019

Hello fellow collectors. Happy New Year! Hope you guys had fun and spent good times with friends and family drinking and celebrating the arrival of 2019.

Sorry for the long hiatus, I was neglecting the blog for the last few months. I have a pretty solid reason though. Let me explain.

Last October, I switch my job in marketing for a comeback in journalism (it's my field of study). So my job is, obviously, writing stories about what's going on in my region. And when I got home after a day of work, I lack a bit of motivation to write again for the blog.

Sorry guys. You are not a lot reading this blog, but the regular ones are staying with me since the beginning, and I abandoned you. I feel guilty.

In 2019, one of my resolutions is to keep alimenting this blog as often as I could. Because I love writing and exchanging with you guys. We are a fun community!

While celebrating in a chalet with no Internet connection, I asked myself what are my goals, my bucket list for my collection this year. I came up with 5, so here goes :

It's not a real one, just a regular Bauer Supreme from the 90's that I snagged for 20 bucks, just for the name on it!

1- Hit the 1900 cards in my collection

As I write this entry, I'm at 1731, so it's not that impossible. 2000 will be too hard, and 1800 will be too easy. I'm only 71 away from that goal. I have a lot of base and low inserts I need to grab, so if I'm focusing on them, it's a reachable goal.

2- Finish years 1994-95 and 1995-96

I only need two from 1994-95 and three from 1995-96. They are not that hard to find, but hard at a reasonable price. I have found some of these five on the net, but one is not surfacing: the 1994-95 Stadium Club Dynasty and Dynasty Members Only. If you have it, let's talk! 😂

3- Reach 50 autographed cards

Surprisingly, I have nearly 40 autographed cards of Bure. I didn't know until I inventoried my cards. I just bought a new one yesterday, so a dozen until December is a very reachable objective. 

4- Have a tag card

Of all the "game worn" piece of equipment companies put on cards, a tag is the only piece I didn't have in my collection. They are rare and expensive though, but if one appears at a good price, I might be tempted to get it! 

5- Possess a real game-used equipment

It's literally one of my dreams. Be in possession of a game-used jersey, gloves, stick, skates is something I need in my collection, and need to be framed in my man cave!

That's it guys, here's my top 5 bucket list for my collection for 2019. And you, what is your bucket list for this year? Let me know in the comments section below!
