Default Do you like pie? If so, check this out.

Sorry, not the yummy pie.

I got curious this afternoon so I made this pie chart. I wanted to see what proportion of my OSU autograph collection was divided among the different companies. Some interesting discoveries:

--I knew that I wasn't a big fan of Panini cards, but I didn't realize how small they really were in my collection.

--Meanwhile, you can clearly see my love for Upper Deck and Press Pass.

--The Donruss/Playoff section surprised me with its size too, since most of my collection is OSU uniform and they haven't had a whole lot of that. I guess that most of my non-OSU uniform autographs belong to Donruss/Playoff to give them that large of a market share.

If you guys happen to have a nice Excel database for your cards, I'd love to see a similar break down!

For you and anyone else interested:

1. Copy out the column that has the brand names (UD,PP,Panini,etc.) and paste it in Word or a text editor.

2. Ctrl+F to do a Find. Search for each brand name and write down how many of each you have.

3. Go back to Excel. Make a column with the brand names and then put the numbers for each in the column beside.

4. Insert > Charts > Pie Chart. Then when it asks for the data just select both of those columns you just made.

5. It will automatically make a legend for you. I took the whole thing into Photoshop to overlay the names instead of a legend. That's optional.

Next dumb question: Now that I have the chart, how do I post it into this?

Right-click -> Save as picture.

Then upload it to Photobucket or IMGUR and then bring the URL in here like normal.

I like pie - but for whatever reason, I am technologically challenged today.

My data, however, is as follows:

Topps: 60%
Other: 5%
Panini: 21%
Sage: <1%
Upper Deck: 14%

Just visualize the pie.

95% Topps
4% Panini
1% Leaf

Since I mainly just collect cam's chrome cards, I deal mostly with topps. I will randomly buy a different company's cards, if I see something I like.

Sorry, but I wish I had a pie chart to visualize my cards. Good job on yours OP, looks good.
