So, I have a love for Excel and some would even call me an Excel geek. So why not combine the love for baseball cards with my love for Excel !! It took a lot of work (and some tips from Jon at Community Gum) and weeks of tweaking but I finally have my Glavine collection in Excel. So how is this fun you may ask ? Well, I now finally have a good overview of which cards I have and which cards are missing and the fun part is that I can do some data-mining as well !!
Here's the my first summary !!
Not sure about you but I think this is great, love to have some "control" over my collection and be able to track my progress ! Some other observations:
- There are more than 6,000 different Glavine cards !!
- I only have less 20% of these so 80% more to go !!
- I suspect the Printing Plate overview is not complete yet so some work to do there !!
- A 1,000 1/1's...how can one ever complete this :-))
All in all, will kepp everyone posted with my progress !! Step 2 is now to build one for Kershaw and Blyleven and if I have energy left maybe do one for Sabathia, Rivera and Rizzo as well.
