Are there lists of cards for specific characters?

Just started a new collection of a specific character(Solomon Grundy). Are there lists out there of all cards that feature a certain character? They do it for sports players but I couldn't find anything doing an online search.

I can go through the checklists on Jeff's site but was trying to be lazy!

Same question applies to comic book covers.

I doubt it. I once tried to research cards on Emma Frost and had to pick through checklists and other people's references. I give it up before I got anywhere near a good list.

Maybe you can find someone else's list, if they ever posted it somewhere.

It would also depend on the character you are looking for. Big names like Superman have too much stuff available to ever complete, but you have a better chance of finding out about it. A character like Solomon Grundy has a small fraction of stuff in comparison, but is harder to search because there is marginal interest. I'll bet a lot people had to look the name up, and yes I did hear of him, but I don't remember his place well other than being a villain. Wink

Never seen a list.

But, you can use Google's advanced search to search ONLY Jeff's site for "Solomon Grundy". That would make the search manageable if not easy.

That is why I picked him. Not a big name like Superman so there won't so much out there that I would give up collecting him.

That is what I figured I would end up doing. Not a whole lot of DC sets so it isn't too bad.

DC Comics: Super-Villains is scheduled to be released in the Spring. It's by Cryptozoic, so who knows about the release date, but I would think that you should find a Grundy card in that.

Even simpler: Google search for:

... grundy site:nslists.com

I found:
DC Villains - Skybox 1995
DC vs. Marvel - Fleer/Skybox 1995
Justice League - Inkworks 2003
Humpty Dumpty Up-to-Date - Shelby Gum 1930s

I left the Solomon out of the search and it found a few false leads, but Google has a way of ignoring quote if you try to use a phrase like "solomon grundy." Note that Solomon also showed up for the nursery rhyme character ("born on a Monday"), even before Cyrus Gold appeared in comics! There probably more of these in the ancient history of unlisted card sets.

Amalia Barrios' site also picked up the Peru version of DC vs. Marvel.

I tried to set up search-word fields for the checklist site, but came to the conclusion that the Google searches over the domain works better. "Emma Frost" would probably pick up some false positives.

Pretty sure that Humpty Dumpty one would be the nursery rhyme. The google search is a start but like you said there are a lot of false positives and missing hits altogether.

Good thing there aren't a lot of DC sets to search through!

If I modify the search to:
... "solomon grundy" site:nslists.com

I get the same four sets with no false positives. The first time I wanted to make sure I saw any set with just "Grundy".

Over the last few years, Google has gotten (nearly?) flawless in avoiding missing items. One reason I format the lists as text files is to make them uber-friendly to search engines and I specifically enable robots.txt. Please email me if you find a proper hit that Google misses, since I use that method for my own searches ...
