My 1000 Card Club - zeprock - 10-17-2012 12:41 PM
Checking my ORG and I now have 27 players that I have at least 1000 different cards of, surpassing that mark this week with Todd Helton (who leapfrogged over recently added 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

How the heck do you go about collecting that many players? Very impressive.

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.

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!
