When it comes to set collecting, I am done.
I have lost interest in base set collecting over the years especially modern day set collecting. I never thought it would come to this but it seems it has. I just don't feel like taking the time to sort out a big set anymore, try to chase down set numbers I need or actually find any of today's sets valuable enough to take my time to chase. Instead, I break up the partial sets now and put all of the cards by team.
However, there are some modern day sets I do want to finish.
I have 2014 Flair football, 2015 Score football, 2015 Panini Americana line I hope to finish up on. Those are only because I had bought multiple boxes of the product. You can find my needs for those here, http://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/p/set-needs.html
Obviously, two other meaningful modern sets I still want to finish up are my two autograph set chases in Psych that you can find here for my needs, http://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/p/blog-page.html and Ghostbusters that you can find here, http://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/p/ghostbusters-want-list.html
Outside of those, I am done with modern day sets. This is where the mostly done with set collecting part comes in next.
However, I have started a Sets Of My Childhood chase. There are a lot of late 90's sets I would love to build and have spent countless hours organizing and getting number needs together on. Those are the ones valuable to me in many ways. I will continue to chase down those and any of the insert sets from the late 90's. I have a lot of focus on getting my Spx and EX lines done, but there are tons of other needs on there as well. You can find all of my Sets Of My Childhood set needs here as I massively updated it,
Well, there you have it. I have officially, mostly, announced my retirement from set collecting.
So that leads me to a question as well, how many of you chase down modern day sets anymore? Or do you stick to vintage or sets you grew up collecting?
