What Makes a Supercollector?

What Makes a Supercollector?
I have heard this term tossed around in the threads. I have 1444 different Favre cards after today's mail day. Does this make me a supercollector? Or is it based on something other than the amount of cards you have collected?

RE: What Makes a Supercollector?
i think it probably has more to do with percentage of cards rather than just the number, but i dont think there's an exact percentage that can make someone a super collector. i dont think the title can be self appointed either a person need to be recognized as a super collector by their peers. rather being self proclaimed. thats my opinion at least

RE: What Makes a Supercollector?
Im not a super collector here. But On another site where I am a "Super collector " They required this:

Player Collection Applications

To apply for and reach Player Collection Super Collector status, applicants must meet all 5 requirements or 1 of the exceptions in order to be accepted. These numbers are set high for a reason.

1st Requirement- Percentage Owned
Based on the amount of cards produced of a given player, you must provide the amount produced along with how many you have. For example using the chart below. If I collect Steve Young, and he has 1799 cards. I need to have 50% of those cards. So I must have at least 899. You do not need to count 1/1s towards the total. They are viewed as more of a bonus.

Quantity produced / % you must have (changed %'s)

Your player must have 200 cards produced of him to be eligible, as players with low production runs may be too easy to obtain, for previously entered members, they are Grand-fathered in.

200-250- 90%
251-500 - 75%
501-750 - 60%
751-1000 - 50%
1001-1500 - 45%
1501+ - 40%

2nd Requirement- Auto/GU Owned
Must have at least 15% of auto/gu the player has produced.

3rd Requirement- Rookies Owned
Must have at least 60 rookie cards can be rookie of any level base, insert, gu, auto. In cases of a rookie having limited amounts of cards produced, we will accept exceptions on this, on a case by case basis. However if your player has a significant amount of rookies more then 60, do not expect to be given an exception.

4th Requirement- Not too much Base Owned
Base cards cannot be more then 60% of entire collection.

5th Requirement- Proof
We will need to see pictures, so please link your photobucket or website. If you are a Super Collector, we assume you would want to show your collection off! Let's see it! You should have the better portion of your Autos and Jerseys pictured at the very least. General pictures of binders or cases with base are acceptable.

6th Requirement- Post Count
You must have 300 posts on SCF or more to apply, those already in are exempt, but too many people are coming and posting with a handful of threads and never return.

Exceptions
These 5 requirements may not be entirely possible in every case, depending on your collector style. We realize everyone collects a little differently. Here are 2 exceptions to consider. If you are applying via one of the Exceptions, please explain which one and give us enough info.

#1- Too Many Cards Produced Exception. If the player you collect has entirely too many cards produced of him, we will consider an exception. If you own 2,000+ cards of a specific player, no more then 80% cannot be base/insert, you can apply through this exception. Therefore you need at least 400 Auto, GU/Memorabilia, Rookie, 1/1. Provide info.

#2- Too Few Cards Produced Exception. If the player you collect has been in the leaue for at least 5 years but had received little hobby attention and has less than the 200 cards, but more than 50, you may apply but your percentages will have to follow these guidelines: 95% for players with 51-100 cards, 90% for players with 101-199 cards.

#3- High-End Collector Exception. If you do not collect all cards of a certain player and maybe just collect Autos or Patches of a certain player, we will allow those with a Book Value of $15,000+ (with at least 100 Cards of that Specific Player Minimum). 1/1's and no book value cards can act as $bv50, but no more. Provide info. While we do not see this as a true Super Collector by our definition, we realize everyone collects differet things for different reasons.

Also, please submit your player collector applications in this form:

1. Total Owned - __/__ (___)
+ 1/1's - __/__ (___)
2. GU/Autos Owned - __/__ (___)
3. Rookie Cards - __/__ (___)
4. Base/Parallels - __/__ (___)
5. Proof: Link to your photobucket
6. Post Count

If that's the case, I have a little over 11% of his cards so I have a long way to go! I'd have a better chance being a Charlie Peprah supercollector. I have 1 of the 3 cards ever made of him!

I like "that other site" in terms of their requirements. I was hoping Beckett would institute something similar here due to the high numbers of people calling themselves "supercollectors" and having 10 or less autos of their guy.....or selling off their entire collection after 2 months.....or changing their "supercollection" player every couple of weeks.....or ________. (you may fill in the blank here).




We've had this discussion here more times than I can count and what it comes down to for me is, "Are you happy collecting who you collect? Do you continue to build on your PC? Do you have a statistically significant percentage of his cards?" (this varies by collector of course, for me it's around 50% minimum unless your guy has 10,000 cards, or his prices are insane...)
Hooray! You have a GREAT collection.

If someone wants to call you a player supercollector, then how lovely for them. It's not a status symbol and it doesn't earn you any more stars by your name or a free OPG, but you for sure don't apply it to yourself until you can put your PC where your mouth is. (make sure you take a look around at other PC's first so you know what you're talking about.)

RE: What Makes a Supercollector?
Without those 420 TD cards from Topps and Topps Chrome, you're collection would probably be closer to that 40%

I think "supercollector" is the term hoarders use to justify their addiction
