This thread is for T206 collectors. Your monster number is the number of unique cards you own out of 524 with the following rules:

240 points for Honus Wagner
80 points each for Plank, Doyle NY NATL & Magie
1 point for everyone else.

The highest monster number is therefore 1000.

Occasionally I receive inquiries from collectors who just can't stand the notoriety that comes with having a posted Monster Number. I do respect their "unwarranted" need for privacy though.

The goal of this thread was never to identify where all 2,834,216 cards reside, but going forward I will offer an "Anonymous" listing option. Only you will know who you are, as I will try to forget. Of course this option will require that your posting be done in private, via PM, with the doors closed.

If there is demand for this new service, it may be necessary to add a number, letter or punctuation to your listing. If possible, I will even offer an emoticon option such as "Anonymous ". Just let me know in private, if you are interested in this service. I'll be home tonight.

Condition and back variations are not factors in your basic monster number.
Depending on interest back monster numbers (i.e. Polar Bear Monster numbers) could be considered in the future.

If you have duplicates, they are considered 2nd sets. Each set you own has its own Monster number.

For example I currently have 555 total cards, including 36 duplicates and 1 triplicate.
I do not own any of the Big Four. Therefore, my monster numbers are 518 for Set 1, 36 for Set 2 and 1 for Set 3.

Let's just get started with your highest Monster Number only. I am also suggesting that you share scans of a few of your cards.





No prizes, but I will tabulate and post a listing of everyone's Monster Number here in the original post and update the list periodically forever or until the cows come home, whichever comes first.

All that's needed is a number with scans if you care to add them. The Honor system will apply and you need not worry about a visit from the
Monster Number Gestapo.

Guess my highest possible total would be 998, as there wouldn't be a Demmitt or O'Hara/St. Louis in my range of cards. Anything else would be possible.

Great topic. I've always thought about a points system based on how rare a card is or how rare the back is etc. A system full of multipliers. Endless possibilities. Cobb Green vs. Red, Polar Bear vs. Lenox, VG vs. EX. Bonus points for Wagner, Plank etc. SLers - OM vs. Piedmont. I wish I had the time to develop a program to do this - I once had the time... I've seen websites and spreadsheets that kinda do this.
Based on the OP's topic - I'm at about 480... Just a bunch of 1 pointers...

John, you should get that Plank put in a PSA holder - whoever currently owns the Wagner would probably pay good money for it as a companion piece with similar history.
