SpColl 16: Trading Card Non-Sport

Scope and Content

The non-sports trading card collection consists of more than 10,000 pieces, with representative subjects ranging from cheerleaders (see “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders” in the body imagery category) to animated characters (see “Itchy & Scratchy” in The Simpsons animated characters category). This collection is built primarily from donations from individual collectors. Its strength lies primarily in cards dedicated to narratives (whether cinematic, televised, or printed). The Animated character and Movie (non-animated) categories are particularly strong.

The collection is divided by category–the categories themselves being determined by the scope of included cards–and these categories are stored in alphabetical order. The cards within each category are further separated by published title, and these titles are filed in alphabetical order. Within each category, the individual cards are arranged in publisher-assigned number order.
