It is scary the way these collections build up over time.

I agree.
And there is still a part of my collection that is not in my Excel database yet.
We, the collectors, are really crazy people.

You must have a LARGE room to store them in....I can barely contain my humble collection.

I like to ask other dealers and collectors how they control the size of their collections, and what their wives and partners think of the space they take up. I mean they are very small, but 100,000 small pieces of cardboard take up a lot of room. Smile

In my case there is a thin strip of carpet from the bedroom door to the bed. The whole of the rest of the floor and all the way up all four walls is just boxes and binders.

Yes thats right, i'm single. Big Grin

Congratulations, that's an excellent effort. I have my collection recorded electronically but base sets are just 1 record so I don't actually know how many cards I have.

For storage, I have a bookcase with binders for my collected sets and a couple of cupboards for spare base sets and boxes, and some binders and boxes for spare inserts etc. In my old house, I had a couple of bays in a compactus (the rest was comics).
