I don't think Garvey has logged 1500 "official" cards yet, but with the ACEOs, customs and other card-like items, I am easily well over 1500 individual and unique items. I honestly couldn't tell you how many cards he has registered. It's got to be somewhere between 1000-1500 though, best guess.

I just updated my spreadsheet and find I have passed 1500 Grady Sizemore cards. This does include things like Moments and Milestones with the different numbers on the same cards and UD Documentary with only the game dates changed, along with things like the 2008 UD SP Legendary Cuts Memorable Moments 1/1s of which I have 14. But they're all unique cards in some respect, and I'm counting them. I've checked ebay nearly every day for almost 20 years for Sizemore stuff. That's kind of amazing to me how it's become just one of those things I do along with getting coffee. There's not a lot I've missed off ebay, but every day I am hopeful something I don't have will appear.

My Jeter collection has hit that. As of March 2016, the last time I did inventory, I was at 1746. Since then I know I have added at least another 500 between COMC buys, new card releases, and gifts from fellow team collectors.

just like baseball we might need to up this to the 3000 club and 5000 club.

My two main PC guys these days don't have 1,500 cards combined. I can't imagine trying to lock down 6,000 cards like some of you all have.

I remember hoping to join this club one day when this thread was made back in the day - little did I know Brandon Webb would never pitch again, which obviously cratered production of his cards after 2009/2010. I think he has somewhere between 1,500 and 2,000 cards, so can't imagine a situation I ever get close - currently at 1,081.

But some amazing numbers here and have always loved reading this thread!

TCDB has Webb at 2499 unique cards, and I'd guess that's pretty close to the real total. So 1500 might be doable?

Depends on how much spare time and spare money you've got. Which, incidentally, explains why I'm still only at 61% of Alomar cards (4872 unique, against 7978 unique listed on TCDB).

Beckett lists Dawson at 6351 different cards with over half of those being in the last several years.

That sounds about right - I have to update my old spreadsheet as I don't collect certain cards (don't count anything that pictures him with other players, and have been ignoring the Archives buyback autographs), so I expect my total might be closer to 2,000. And who knows how many of those are just printing plates from the glory days of every product having printing plates (which I also don't collect anymore, but I do still pick up Webb ones if cheap).

Sounds about right. They have Ozzie Smith listed for 10,251 but the great, great majority of them are post career issues. I think the last time I broke it down was in 2021 and he had something like 3,000 playing era cards and 6,000 after career cards at that point. It's nuts.

Wow! 10k cards!
