57 cubic feet

That is the size of the Ronald S. Korda Collection of Sports and Trading Cards, 1952-1996, housed at the Smithsonian.

Mr. Korda was a collector of trading cards, mostly sports, with baseball cards making up about 70 % of the collection.

Here are some items from the collection:
  • 1952-1995 Topps baseball card sets
  • 1951 Topps Red Backs baseball wax pack
  • 1991 Score baseball unopened carton
  • multiple hockey and football sets
  • Sideliners "Pro Football Cheerleaders," 1994
  • 1 football soap-on-a-rope
  • 2 Rawlings commemorative baseballs "Late Night with David Letterman, 6th anniversary, February 4, 1988"
  • Milwaukee Brewers placemat
  • 1969 Mets pin
Makes me a bit jealous.
