The Evolution Of My Collection – Part 14
It has been a little more than five months since my last ‘Evolution’ post.
I still remain extremely organized with my collecting, and even as the size of my collection grows, I make sure that I take my time to keep things as neat and tidy as possible.
If you have read any of my prior ‘Evolution’ posts, you will notice albums have been recently introduced into the fold. While my preference is to keep cards in boxes as they are easier to organize and move around, I have introduced albums for a few parts of my collection that do not change all that much.
First, let me show you what my full collection looks like today. Then, I will offer a breakdown of what you’re seeing…
And now for the breakdown…

Grey album – Florida/Miami Marlins team sets
Black album – Pete Rose 1985 Topps limited edition set
WHEW!!! That was a lot of work!!!!
My Marlins team set album is bulging. I am going to have to pick up another album and split them up soon. Also, I am considering moving some more subsets into the one that holds my Pete Rose limited edition set. This will free up some much needed space in my boxes, and also provide me with a lot more penny sleeves and top loaders to use for future player collections… We’ll see.
That is it – my full baseball card collection. With the exception of a few cards that are on my desk that are either to be traded or are going to be written about for the blog in the coming days, you are seeing the whole collection.
Thanks for reading. I promise to try to do this a little more often.
Have a great night!!!
