    Show off your HOARD of cards

    This isn't necessarily a thread for all you guys with jaw-dropping immaculate setups; this is for anyone and everyone who looks like they need to be featured on one of those obsessed tv shows. We are talking piles of pages out of binders, monster boxes stacked to the sky, etc.

    I ran across this pic this evening:



    ...and literally had to do some research on it, because I thought I bought him out a few years back (turns out it isn't him.)

    Here are a few from my past ...



    Guy I bought out had a HOUSE FULL of cards ... and I mean it. This is his kitchen, including where his fridge was supposed to be LOL. I laugh ... almost as if that wouldn't be what my kitchen would look like if I weren't married.



    Another deal I did that filled up the minivan (which has happened countless times!)



    Post up the biggest/baddest pics of your hoard ... or a hoard you have seen!

    I had a hoard but it got too big and attracted the attention of a dragon.

    I like posts like this, if for no other reason than to show my wife just how controlled my collection is.

    LOL! Yeah exactly - "Hey babe, check out these pics! See? I'm normal, I'm normal!"

    I had most of my stuff stored (plus household items) in a 10x10 storage unit before I was married and bought a house. That was after I had added the most bulk to the collection in the 1993-2000 era, so I have added a relatively small percentage, estimated to be around 10-15% to that base volume since then, but now it is stashed away wherever there is space...mostly my garage, under the stairs and in my card room (a small bedroom crammed pretty full of crap). Pictures don't really do it justice now, as the bulk of the MASS and the most impressive site to see had it been piled up in full view is packed tightly under the stairs and is deceptively hidden to appear much less daunting.

    Yo, a while back I started a thread specifically for that reason. Until recently she hadn't said anything after she saw the pictures.
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    85% of my collection is still in my parents place.
