Just an observation.
I look through the show and tell and the box pack breaks frequently. I especially like the show and tell. Is it me or does sites like this attract an unusual amount of the OCD crowd? Not meant as a bad thing but it is amazing how many collect every card of a certain player or try to get all of one limited cards. Makes for great viewing I must say.

I wouldn't call it OCD, I'd just consider it a niche in which the collector enjoys.

Hard to comment w/o offending those who pc only 1 player, or only players from a single team. Than again I am ocdish about Artifacts everything, so I won't judge, although I think collecting anything, including hockey cards can be very addictive, hence the "obsessive" component....

I love it. It just amazes me how many there are.

I think collectors in general, including myself, have a lot of OCD. I may just be projecting, but I don't know if I've ever met a "serious" collector of anything who wasn't OC!LF these ITG Decades 1980's Autos: Mario Lemieux SP, Mark Messier EDM SP, Mark Messier CAN SP, Patrick Roy SP, Vladislav Tretiak SP. Also may need Quads, Golds or other low print runs; need Lindbergh Decades Trophy Winner Black. PC includes Sakic, Vaive, Salming, Lafleur, Shutt and anyone named Stastny except Yan. Also buying Tokarski rookie year cards if priced right.

I LOVE trying to get all the Keslers. And I HATE trying to get all the Keslers. So the answer, for me at least, is yes. And no offense taken at all, Gallinator is right, we're all nuts :)

Totally agree with your LOVE/HATE statement. When looking at new checklists for Clark Gillies cards there's always equal disappointment/elation no matter if he has a card or not. It's always, "Well, good I don't have to search for anything in Artifacts this year....damn, no new Gillies cards to look forward to getting." The other day I was just thinking about whether or not I enjoy getting the cards themselves or just the process of making a list and checking it off once I get the card.
I definitely have a fair share of the OCD and I'm not offended at all.

OCD is rampant. I don't see much contrasting behaviour that says otherwise.Collecting many HOF Cards, Old OPC, Old Parkhurst, Old Topps.

You mean it's not normal to have 60 Cup rookies of a single player? Come on, that's crazy talk.
