I was wondering today what total populations of 19th century cards might be. How many do you own? What percentage are graded? I own around 1,000 and probably 50 or so are graded.

Thanks for your responses.

To many to count, I do know off the top of my head I have about 1400 different Allen and Ginter cards, a thousand or so N245's and a thousand or so 1800's trade cards. All mostly raw, maybe five hundred or so graded.

I think I have five or six. I'm afraid I have to appreciate them from afar, which is why I so appreciate when you N collectors share your treasures. Now if there were 19th century gum card wrappers... - Jack J.

Don't forget - there are a lot more 19th century cards besides "N" cards ("H", some "J", "K", "M", and all sorts of trade cards).

With that being said I have approx. 5,000 "N" (and tobacco trade cards) + approx 3,800 others. Nothing graded.

Will only buy N cards in vg condition, not sure how many. That is a problem with N cards
once you get a few nice ones, there is no going back to creases and round corners. I'm still trying to find the best way to display them without damaging them from the light. There is a glass
factory on my way to work, I'm going to stop there and ask some questions. One thing is for sure
I hate having them in a binder in a drawer, I want to enjoy them, especially the Ginters, the Ol'
Judges, the Lorillards, all the Long Cuts, and maybe a few more. Thank you. tm

I probably have 4 or 5 hundred non-sport with about 10% graded. That's only 5 sets when you think about it. There are literally 10's of thousands of 19th century cards out there you just don't see them show up in large groups anymore. Frank, are you kidd'n me I can't even think of 200 diff baseball cards unless your talking Old Judges, which is still very impressive.

Yes, mostly N172's but also N28's. N29's and Mayos. Low grade for sure which is fine by me.

Not too many 19th century car cards

Cards about postage stamps maybe 1000, graded ZERO (a couple were, not now).

I have something in the neighborhood of 700+ 19th century tobacco insert cards (i.e. N cards), including about 75 N172s and another 15 or so baseball and boxing cards. Besides Old Judges, the 19th century tobacco set that I have the most of is N224 (Kinney Military), of which I have 51. I have several hundred N card types, depending on what you count as a separate "type".

In addition to all that, I have something like 5000 trade cards from the 19th century, and that's not even counting several hundred duplicates. I have 17 albums of those, plus five teetering stacks that I still need to sort and put in albums, which will probably require at least another 3 or 4 albums.

I also have at least a couple of thousand T cards (sport and non-sport), including over 500 T206s (with many tough backs) and around 500 T59s (with 60+ different backs).

Edited to add: The only graded 19th century cards I have are about five Old Judges.
