Default Box of 20

I would have to include my 1910 Dixie Queen boxing set as 1 card... lol... and another must have would be the 1931 Walt Disney & Mickey Mouse card European issue... not expensive just very cool... just picked up a cool T206 PSA 1.5 Red Cobb Lenox back that would go in there!!!

Wow! That Cobb! I think that is worthy of inclusion!

That was a great price on the Lenox Alex.

I am trying to do this with my soccer card collection - limiting the number of items allows me to appreciate each one more and put my funds into upgrades.

I am also limiting myself to 2 hockey card sets and that seems to be working out. I spend more time enjoying and upgrading the ones I have than trying to add to others.

Price is meaningless and actually, so is sport - throw in football, hockey, basketball, curling. What is meaningful is the connection you have with the card. Sometimes it just happens when you see it. Sometimes it's a long-treasured common or that one card that just gets you.

My number one card is the 1967 Topps Al Kaline. As a six-year old in Detroit, he was the man. And yes, as a six-year old I was allowed to roam the neighborhood with my buddies talking Tigers and trading cards. I was introduced to baseball cards that year. Never understood why, after the third series, he never showed up in the packs.

Also included is the T202 Cobb/ Jennings 1951 Bowman Mays, 1956 Topps Clemente, N43 Ewing, 1967 Topps #215, 1990 Donruss Delucia, N150 Sullivan, and many more.

What ya think?
At this juncture in collecting I don't think I can do it. Maybe later.

Default Reduce yes. To 20? No. But maybe...

I certainly want to reduce the number of cards I have. Phases of my 40 years of collecting have come and gone and I would like to clear out a lot of the bulk junk I have that I no longer enjoy. 20 cards in my entire collection wouldn’t be any fun either. I enjoy set collecting and a 20 card limit would not work. I’m intrigued by the idea of a 20 card showcase though. I think I could enjoy that.

I think you nailed it, Orlando (Luke, too.)

Although I've increased the date range of what I collect (from Pre-WWII to Pre-1958,) the total number of cards in my collection has decreased. I've kept only the cards I truly enjoy having. Limiting myself to 20 may be an issue, however.

I think I could probably get it down to a few hundred but not 20.

Trying to stay in the few hundred thousand range. Finding it difficult.
