Super-Collector Roll Call
We posed the following question via @SportsCardAlbum on Twitter:
Are you a Super-Collector? If so, how many unique cards do you have of the player or team (or serial #) you collect? Reply with a number.

The reason for our question is still a secret, but the responses were off the hook…
@sportscardalbum 25ish Egnews. All but 2 are auto or relic. Also close to the same on Johnthan Banks.

@sportscardalbum 4265 of 5781 Twins cards from 1951 onward. Covering Topps, Donruss/Leaf, Upper Deck, Score/Pinnacle/Panini. Just under 75%!

@sportscardalbum Then there’s the 500+ for Bagwell, 500+ for Biggio and 500+ for Nolan Ryan, et al. But Hopkins is main focus right now!

Which leads us to another question…how many cards does one need to have in their collection for them to be considered a “Super” Collector for that particular player or team? 25? 50? 100? 300? 1,000?
Should we allow anybody to call themselves a “SuperCollector” or should we reserve that title for the people that truly devote themselves to collecting a specific player or team?
