Prior to this post, I had posted 666 times in two years. Scary.
Today, I just want to thank everyone that I have traded with. I was reflecting on my collection today, and it really is astounding how much it has grown in the past two years.
When I started this blog, all of my player collections added up to less than 100 cards. As of today, My 8 baseball player collections add up to 1,107 cards, including 59 relics, 31 autographs, 3 manupatches and 2 silks. Here is the breakdown by player:
I would say I've become a Scott Sizemore supercollector, to a certain extent. I now have 91 of Scott's 128 non-1/1 cards. He has 97 1/1's, so I don't see that chunk happening anytime soon. I think a realistic goal is to get all of his cards with print runs of 50 or more. Right now, I have 83/98, or 85%. I have 7 of his 16 #/25, but I look at those as a bonus if I can find them cheap. I also have one card #'ed to 5.
