My collection has grown from 5,000 Griffeys total in 2009 to over 13,000 total as of right now, including 3,300 unique ones. If I didn't make the choice to trade duplicates I do not know where the collection would be.
My collecting of Griffs has slowed significantly due to the fact I'm collecting sets and was collecting the 2009 Icons Letterman. Most sets are well on their way to being done I see a lot of inserts that I'll need still. My favorite cards are the variants, Spanish, and oddballs from 1989-1992. These are hard to get some times.

Then I am mostly looking for his 90's cards which limits the cards I am searching for to about 850 cards I need out of the 1900 plus they made.
