Dodgers Stats

I'm going to start posting the stats from my Dodgers card collection. As long as I can remember to keep doing it, it may be a bit of fun!

# of different Dodgers players on cards I own : 501. From Don Aase (3 cards) to Todd Zeile (12 cards) there are quite a few in there! Mike Piazza (230 cards) sits atop this list.

# of different sets that my Dodger cards come from : 277. From 2012 Topps to 1960 Topps, and I love them all!

# of Dodgers cards in total : 4706. None of these are doubles. I wish I could count those, I'd be up around the 10,000 mark. Heeey... maybe I will count those next time!

Time to put each and every Dodger card I have into alphabetical order. This could take a while!

Until next time,


2012 Topps Series 1

Gooooood afternoon!

It's exciting times in the Beef household. Well, for me, certainly not for the wife who is going to have to put up with 7 sets and a few packs of baseball cards coming to the door in the next few days!

I decided not to purchase a box of 2012 Topps series 1 this year, instead, I bought the 330-card set for about $30, thus avoiding the disappointment of opening a box with 500 cards, and only getting 324 out of the 330. Luckily for me, my folks are going to Hawaii next week, and I've placed my order of 10 'Fat Packs?' from the Wal-Mart near Ala Moana. Just as a bonus.

Incase you were wondering, the other set that I bought to bring up the total of 7? A complete set of 2002 Upper Deck 40 Man. Thaaaat's right : 1182 cards! I wish this set came out every year... Throw that set next to my completed 2006 Upper Deck set and that's nearly 2500 cards from just 2 sets. Oh yes!

Scans to follow, as long as the @%$#ing thing works...

Let's hope so!
