How Many Is Too Many of a Kellogg's Card?

I mentioned that the lot of 1980 unopened packs included 128 cards of Claudell Washington.  I actually have two Kellogg's cards from 1983 in larger numbers than that - George Brett and Fernando Valenzuela.  I ended up buying an entire box of each of these two.  Why?  My answer - one low bid and I found out a few days later that I was the only one dumb enough to get 600 or so Fernandos.  I doubt that I will ever count them.  Why?  My wife's answer - !*Y$!*$&!&!%&#!%%.

From cereal boxes I think the most I've gotten was about five Steve Carlton's in 1978, three of them at once.

Have any of you gotten large numbers of a single card without really trying to do so?  How did that happen?

  1. I've picked up several collections over the years with rookie card lots from the late 80's. Can't remember the exact brand or player, but that just means it was obviously nobody of note.

  2. There were lots of names that qualified during that time.

  3. I have a bunch of 1981 Phillies. Celebration mode from the 80 World Series win. I was at a show and a guy was selling them for 10 cents a piece and I just loaded up. I don't know how many I have. Schmidt, Rose, McGraw, Bowa, Carlton. Not to the numbers you are talking about, but probably 20-30 of each.

  4. That's a nice find. I'm always trying to find a Schmidt card if I am making a Kellogg's set.
