Not counting all the special boxed sets or over-sized or promo cards or tip cards, there are approximately 16,560 different Magic cards
across all the playsets.
My goal has always been to collect one of every Magic card ever printed - a goal I know is nearly impossible. As of last night, I have 10,785
of these unique cards in binders.
I have 10 complete sets
(Fallen Empires, Chronicles, Visions, Stronghold, Urza's Legacy, Urza's Destiny, Mercadian Masques, Nemesis, Torment, and Judgment).
I am well over 90% complete on 15 more sets
(Revised, The Dark, 4TH, Ice Ages, Homelands, Alliances, Mirage, Weatherlight, Tempest, Exodus, Urza's Saga, 6TH, Prophecy, Mirrodin, and Darksteel).
I am currently re-organizing the entire collection so I can determine trade and build and sale stock. Because of this, I am not currently accepting trades
, but hope to soon - will post here to update status!
