Default How many (sub) collections do you have?

Thought it might be interesting to see how many focal points people may have with regards to collecting pre-war cards...I know some are really focused (e.g. only one player), and then there are those without any focus whatsoever.
So, how many collections are you building?

Me (4):
T-cards: Chicago Cubs Team Sets
International baseball (sort of)
T200 Set
T206 Classic Images

more in post-war, but that's OT

Interesting Post. I currently have the following "sets/subsets" going, and in no particular order

1.) Colgans Chips (E254, Red Borders, and Tin Tops)
2.) Zeenuts 1911-38 (primarily focusing on 1911-23 pre-B/W sets)
3.) E121-like cards (primarily the non Am. Caramel backs but I also collect those)
4.) Pre-1930 Player Pinbacks
5.) Roy Castleton collection (still need Western Playground and D311)
6.) Walter Mails Game (I have the much tougher Blue set but pick up the red backs when they are cheap)
7.) several other minor things also going on (E135, M101-4/5 back types, misc. types, etc.)

Recently abandoned "sets" include E220, 1921 & 1922 Exhibits, several of the Diamond Matchbook sets, etc.

Hmmm...I think all of my collection falls under "Nebraska related", but there are subsets.

1) Nebraska Indians
2) Lincoln Minor League
3) Nebraska town team and minor league postcards
4) cards of players born in Nebraska

#4 is on hold at the moment because we're adding a mouth to the litter ($1 to Cousin Eddie) and those are the easiest to find.

One Hall of Fame Rookie collection is enough for me, no additional subsets here.
