Ok, since my default Focus since 2005 has been graded rookie cards, as of this typing, that seems what this years focus is going to be at The National.
I have compiled a wish list of graded rookie cards that I do not own.
Here is that list:

I've been bouncing idea back and forth in my head about a new focus, and nothing seems to stick. That means that they aren't meant to be.
I've thought about doing:
- a run of complete O-Pee-Chee Baseball sets.
- PSA 9 runs of all Topps and OPC base cards of Brett and Schmidt.
Of course I still have a few more weeks and the way my brain works, things change around a bazzillion times a day, so who the heck knows anymore? lol
If you're reading this.....first off, I appreciate it, I really do, and secondly, if you've got any input I'd love to hear it.
Thanks for the read,
