15 I just started this year and only collect Pirates, so my set will probably top out at 18. I have a few non-Pittsburg cards, but they are not part of my set. I will eventually have over 100 different Pittsburgers, but I'll still be at 18. I was able to pick up a few players with multiple backs thanks to the collectors here.

Only 523 to go. Cobb will lead the way.

Yeah, and you're trying to sell it, so you only get credit for 1/2.

My set is in flux, but my keepers are a green Cobb, O'Hara St. Louis, Elberfeld Washington, ghost Schlei and Kleinow Boston. These were tough the first time around, so not letting them go this time.

Put me down for a '5'.

Shouldn't the goal be 258 for a Pittsburg set?

I note your inquiry regarding an existentialist affirming that zero should probably be dropped as a qualifying set. I'm sure you well know that the existentialist ideology is far from a monolithic perspective so there is really no univocal response to this issue. A Sartrean nihilist might well direct us that zero is as qualifying as any other since the true qualifier is what meaning occurs as being for itself in terms of intentionality rather than from being in itself in stasis. A Heideggerean might well say that zero should be dropped because meaning must arrive epiphenomenally and since there is no true phenomenon
with respect to zero other than our composition of an external linguistic verifier, then zero is dropped by its very nature. A Kierkegaardean existentialist would be open to zero's deserving qualifying status since meaning often arises out of nothing, en vacuo, and deserves status for its
inherent creative impulses. I hope this is helpful to you, Frank.
Many thanks for this extra facet to your T206 question---which although an aside---was quite
ingenious of you.
all the best,
barry

The bottom line or more appropriately the summation of your input leaves nearly 7 billion people hanging, not knowing whether they are proud owners of T206 sets (albeit with Monster Numbers of 0), or whether they should continue their impoverished lives oblivious to this privileged subset of humanity with Monster numbers greater than or equal to one.

Happy Holidays.
