I have to say, that as this site nears it's one year anniversary I am pleasantly surprised at the response. Thirteen people have added their collections online. There are 37 total members. The forums are fantastic and I can't say how awesome it is to see so many pics of Gonzalez stuff in one place. As I write this one question burns in my mind...

Does anyone out there have over 4,000 different Juans???

What a collecting accomplishment that would be. I believe there is someone out there who has hit that hallowed number. I can think of a few contenders...guys who might have 4,000.

aircorp42k - Wil
2725 - Dan
adelith - Roberto
mcabee1 - Chris

Let me know what you think?

Wil has sold off some of his collection so that is a no. Dan collects 87 - 96 all cards and Gem Mint cards of all years, without commons that is a no. Chris is always buying and selling so that is a no. adelith would be the best guess but I doubt anyone really will ever do it!

If Rob would stop trying to buy every card and instead just 1 of every card then he could hit 4,000 in no time.

Roberto has won only about 139 cards from the 2003-2005. unless he does beckett there is no way. 3700 maybe,not 4000. alot of his feedback is from winning hotwheels.

Until someone comes here with a more impressive collection then Rob's, he will remain the king in my eyes!

How many different cards do you think are represented by the members of this site?? Over 4,000...I think so. Between all of us there are well over 50,000 total cards. Rob alone has 35-40,000 on his own.

When I open a card like this > http://www.vintagegaming.org/juangonzalez/pictures.php?cardid=4279 all I do is say wow, Rob likes that one for sure.

Just simply amazing!

Yeah. That's nuts isn't it? I will get to see all 125 of them in a couple of days.

Seven years outright and three ties for Jonas. That is unbelievable! Great work. I can only imagine what your collection would look like if you had not stopped at 2002 for so long.

I am a little surprised I am only winning two years, but I always seem to be a contender...

Hey Kevin. Check out this old thread. It gives some of the stories of the members.

For you newer members, it is great to go back through the old threads and look at some of the stuff. Feel free to add in your two cents.

Fair warning! I'm attacking 2000 with a passion and expect to have over 80% this month. Then I'll work on 2001 as 80% is my goal in each year up till 2003. I chase a year at a time yet still watch for later years and purchase hard to get cards in prior years. I find that you need to get the higher price cards as they are near impossible to find in latter years. Yet commons and not so scarce cards become cheaper and fast collection fill in's. Going through all the stores and stuff is much easier when you go after a particular year.

Did you know that I believe the 2000 collection year did not have a signature card. First since 1995.

Interesting discussion. I have some more cards and other stuff around the house that are not on the "official" list. It is to frusterating for me to try and add to the list so I sit here and watch the card count of others pass me by. No sour grapes here. I am really glad to see guys with more cards than I have or guys who think that they have more than I have from 86-96. I still like to look at Juan items for any year so please keep up the good work and add more for me to look at!!!! I really like looking at the weird stuff.

Why is it frustrating for you to add new things to the list?

I tried to add a single item. It took about 1/2 hour. Results procuced are hardly effective. As the oldest collector in the group I may not live long enough to update :D. If it the group did not help, my count would still be zero :(. Computers are not my thing. I like my collection even if it is not the largest in the group. Do the rest of you like your collections ????? Be specific as to what you like and dislike about the collection.

God I hope so after all these years!! I actually appreciate the rarer oddball stuff more now than I used to. I just realize how hard it is to find some of that stuff now.

I really treasure all of the "hand-touched" autographed cards. Once the stickers came out, autographed cards really lost some legitimacy in my eyes.

Dan,

I do think I have a card you don't have! The 95 Score Rules Jumbo, unless you got it in recent years :( Other then that I'm sure you have every card I have and more except for a promo or two.
