For those of you that have looked at my want list, you know that it is fairly extensive and pretty detailed. I have a spreadsheet that has a page for each year's cards that I copied from Beckett.com and have added to it as I have found errors or missing cards/sets. Whenever I get new cards I mark an "X" by it on my checklist and update my Blog Want List.
Recently I bought a deck of cards that were put out in 1994 that feature Giants on each of the cards. This added 52 cards to my Giants collection and got me thinking about how many cards I have in my Giants collection.
So lets start with a breakdown by decade:
1930s - 4
1940s - 11
1950s - 187
1960s - 415
1970s - 581
1980s - 1687
1990s - 3335
2000s - 3735
2010s - 1802
This gives me a grand total of 11,757 Giants cards. I probably just passed the USC collection within the past month and this deck of cards may have put me over the top, pretty crazy.
I know there are a lot of team collectors out there. How big are your collections?
