I've already talked about my player collections at various points in this blog's career. But a recent post by the Lost Collector, referencing an article by Sports Collectors Daily that I too had read, got me thinking about how my "PCs" have developed.
Hackenbush mentions that his attitude is the best (and possibly only) approach. It's certainly true that owning all of a player's cards is virtually impossible now - the one-of-one cards alone mean some singles may never see the light of day via auction or otherwise. But you don't even have to get everything you can.
