My collection tops! (So far...)

I've been dedicating some time to fill my collection online at The Trading Card Database.

I know zistle had some major changes and that they still are great but I got so used to TCD that I lacked updates on zistle.

But I've talked about this before and today I'm just showing my tops 10.

Yep, at TDB we get to see the collection history by months (and days) and also some tops.

I have yet to add lots of cards to the list but you can get an ideia.

Right now I have a total of 3846 cards listed. That's a big wow to me!

I think that the number counts also the duplicates so if we exclude those we might get a small number...but not that smaller.

So here they are, my top 10.

I still don't get how they calculate the card price.

If it is like they do on zistle is some kind of middle between eBay, Amazon and Beckett no?

None the less I got chocked when I saw the #1.

More than 30$ for the Lind card from the last and infamous 2010 Upper Deck set?

Something is wrong or did I miss something?

Now forgetting the cards values is time for the Top Names.

The only player listed in the top10 that I have in my PC list is Joey Votto.

Derek Jeter is the Yankee I get most it seems.

Now the Top Teams was as expected. Or not.

I didn't buy single cards nor traded enough to get lots of Yankees outside the packs I got.

And from all the packs I bought I got all those Yankess!?

At least the baseball gods are good to me in this chapter.

Still the Red Sox are the #2 team. I wish the East Division was that way too...

2010 Topps Update and 2012 Topps (mostly Series 1) were the sets I did buy lots of packs.

I would take around 50/70 cards in each for the dups and get around 200 cards in each.

My #10 spot is the '88 Topps set with the round number of 100 cards. That's cool.

The Top Years shows that I have more cards from 2010.

No surprise that the previous top 3 correspond to this top 3.

2010 has besides Topps the Upper Deck final set so that's why the advantage for the 2011 and 2012.

The last top is for Brands.

No surprise ether that Topps tanks #1. And if we added the Update and Opening Day and all other Topps products it would be even bigger the number.

I have about 2/3 of Topps against other brands in my collection.

It's not my fault! I try to get other brands even more from the wax era. But they are like an octopus.

So these are my tops after about 5 months of adding cards to the TDB.

  1. Wow, good job, i cant get my self to entering all my cards again (have them in excel already for my player PCs)....

    1. I also have a doc with the all the cards I have. And then it's a lot of copy paste card numbers to the site. It's tough but it gets you to review your collection and that's cool ;-)

  2. This is very cool. I love the different ways you can sort them. Once upon a time, I considered adding my collection to a database. But I input a handful of cards and never finished. Kudos to you.

    1. I even started making my own database (professional illness) but then I ended up using existing ones online.
