    I have at least one of every card. My singles collection from each side can completely fill an Anthology box, plus a few more that fit into a Sealed Deck box.

    My double rares fill a 2-inch binder up to the point where it's hard to close it.

    My double non-rares are scattered around my room, but they can easily fill 2 or 3 Anthology boxes themselves.

    So all in all, I have around 5000-6000 Star Wars cards.

    I have no idea. I'm organizing them again right now, so maybe I should count? I know I have just about every common/uncommon and a good set of rares for everything up to TPM sets. I don't have anything past reflections 2. Right now I use 3 anthology boxes, 14 binder sleeves, and two card boxes that I believe hold 2000 cards each. I've just never been able to cash in on a lot of the rares :(

    Oh, gosh, I haven't counted this stuff in over a year. Let's see...

    I have one box that holds about 3,000 cards ... filled up with Premiere - DS2 commons and uncommons.

    I have one other anthology box -- about 800 cards -- with all of my Tatooine, Coruscant and Theed Palace c/uc cards.

    My rares binder has about 50-60 pages (I've never counted them) filled front-to-back, each slot averages 2-3 cards probably ... so that's about 1,000 more cards?

    My mains binder -- I have at least one version (wb, bb, ai, foil) of every main character ... this is the part of my collection I'm most proud of -- has about 10 pages, for about 100 more cards.

    Plus I have maybe 10 demo decks ... another 600 cards. Plus another anthology box about half-filled with cards from torn-down decks, maybe another 400 cards there.

    Add all that up, and what are we up to? About 6,000 cards, I guess.

    Give or take 1,000. :)

    Er.... a full set of every edition (excluding Unlimited releases), two full boxes that each hold 5,000 cards, several anthology boxes and smaller ones.... so probably somewhere on the order of 10,000 total.

    Anyone know some newbies that need cards?

    eBay is your friend if you're a newbie. You can often find boxes or even entire sets at very reasonable prices.

    Ah, I feel your pain. That's the biggest reason I can't build all of these fancy tourny decks out there. A lot of times I just don't have the volume of cards they ask for.

    What set is TIE Interceptor? DSII isn't it? If so I might have that since I bought 8 boxes of that when it came out.

    I can only say that I have at least one of every card plus doubles, tribles, ect.

    Tribbles! :eek: I thought we were talking about Star Wars CCG??? :p

    I've finally gone through and inventoried all of my cards so I can work on getting one of everything. Do you count foils when saying you have at least one of every card, like not having a BB Premiere Obi-Wan, but you have the Obi-Wan foil??

    Yes, I did count my foils. I have a foil "Darth Vader". At the time I was told by the people at my card store that it was the rarest card out there. I am not to sure if that was true, but I am still proud of it.

    It was the rarest card for awhile. Now the Foil Darth Vader in Japanese is the rarest.


    I've got both anyway...

    My most valued card is the foil General Solo from the Endor expansion set.

    Japanese Darth Vader foil is no where near the rarest SW:CCG card, not anymore anyway. You can usually get one on ebay for $5 or less.

    Right now I have nearly 2 Anthology boxes filled, and once my box of Dagobah shows up I should have over 1600 cards. Which is more cards than I have for Magic, a game I have played off and on since 93-94. Ive been playing SW CCG for about 2 weeks, if you count organizing 3 booster boxes of cards plus Anthology boxes playing..

    i would have to say around 10000 to 12000 cards. premier to death star 2 and excluding endor (unless endor came after DS2 in which case that would explain that).

    I have way more cards than I'll ever need, which is why when I have some people over I try to "hook them up" with lots of cards to round out their collection.

    Now, before you say "that's sick!", let me just say that most of these cards were *earned* as a volunteer for Decipher. As a Squadron Member during the entire run of the game, that meant at least 2 boxes of every expansion. Then, as a playtester, that meant at least 2 more boxes. Add in getting lots of stuff when you do conventions and the like, and the occasional purchase or stuff acquired or won at tournaments, and it gets pretty crazy.

    One time I added up just my rares (a few years ago), and it was nearly 2,500. Then a friend got out of the game, giving me an amount of commons and uncommons pretty much equal to my own. Not needing another 20,000+ cards, I gave them to our local SW hangout, which afterwards went out of business, the owner dumping all of them (I should have just thrown them in my attic).

    So, all in all, I have probably over 25,000 cards, most of them sorted. I would say, that on average, I have 5-6 of every card, which really helps when you build and play lots of decks like I do.
