What is scarce? My posting will be due to the following:

When I ran home a couple weeks back I brought back about half of the Player Collection boxes that need to be sorted and well it's a very long sorting process:

1 step) Sort in groups alphabetically by last name A-D, E-L, M-R, S-Z.

2 step) Sort by player alphabetically by last name.

3 step) Sort each player's cards by year.

4 step ) Sort each year of a player's cards by Brand and Set.

5 step) Check the excel spreadsheet to see if I need it. Throw those not needed into a PC trade box.

6 step) Once done checking if it is a needed card, enter it into the database.

7 step) After entered in DB, redo the PC binder for that player so that the cards are in order, ugh!

8 step) Put binder back on shelf and move to the next player.

JUST NUTS.  OCD at it's worst right there folks.

Needless to say I will be "sorting" of sorts in the coming months with only a random post here and there.   Oh and I forgot step 9.......Update the PC list on my webpage, lol.


  1. That doesn't sound like very much fun!

  2. Pro tip: move your spreadsheet to Google Sheets. Then you can (a) link to it from your site (b) update from anywhere (c) access it from your phone via the app when you’re out at a show or a shop.

    Unless you’re using some advanced functions, it should serve your needs just fine.

  3. I also have an extensive process. Most of it is fun but some of it is a chore. Worth it though. However my life is busier and the cards have still been coming in - my collection hasn't been fully sorted and intact for over three years now.
