Checking my ORG and I now have 26 players that I have at least 1000 different cards of, surpassing that mark this week with Roberto Alomar. These are just cards listed in Beckett, for example I have over 50 Mantle cards that are not listed in the Beckett database. Anyone else have a 1000 Card Club?

Edited to update numbers.

I have over 40,000 cards total. I'll have to look to see if I have 1000 of a player. Too much of a cheapskate to buy Organize Big Grin
How the heck do you go about collecting that many players? Very impressive.

Agreed.
I collect Hall of Famers and potential Hall of Famers. Most of the non-HOF players on that list had potential before the steroid scandal. Plus I started collecting in 1970 so I had a good headstart on a lot of the folks on these boards.
how do you keep track of all of them?

I have 35,000+ cards, and I knew without even looking that I did not have 1,000 of any one player. Once I checked, I saw that my two largest HOF player collections (Jordan and Sandberg) do not even total 1,000 cards combined!
i have a 1000+ Darryl Strawberry i have collected him for 24 years!!
