So, as of right now, here are what the stacks look like for the claimed teams...
Side view, to illustrate average height on the non-Texans stacks. Looks like about 200 cards per stack, roughly speaking.
Went with a sideways view for this, didn't feel like rotating it and you'll be able to see the top cards better. Oldest cards for each stack are as follows:
Texans: 2005 Topps
Giants: 1959 Topps
Vikings: 1972 Topps
Redskins: 1969 Topps
Cowboys: 1974 Topps
Saints: 1970 Topps
Packers: 1955 Bowman
Colts: 1955 Bowman
To give you a little more perspective of how the stacks break down:
Colts: 25 are 1986-back
Cowboys: 32 are 1986-back
Giants (1983-back claimed, though I pulled 'em all): 44 are 1983-back
Packers: 35 are 1986-back
Redskins: 28 are 1986-back
Saints: 50 are 1986-back
Vikings: 33 are 1986-back
With each stack, the following stars are represented pretty well:
Colts: Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Joseph Addai, Dallas Clark, Reggie Wayne
Cowboys: Miles Austin, Jason Witten, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith
Giants (remember, pre-'84): Brad Van Pelt, Harry Carson, George Martin
Packers: Brett Favre, Donald Driver, Greg Jennings, Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and I almost forgot to add the Aaron Rodgers pile! Guy gets no respect.
Redskins: Gary Clark, Art Monk, Antwaan Randle El, Santana Moss, Clinton Portis
Texans: Andre Johnson, Matt Schaub, Owen Daniels
Saints: Drew Brees, Reggie Bush, Marques Colston, Morten Andersen
The only stuff I haven't dug into yet for the team stacks are the slightly higher-end rookies (I've got an Adrian Peterson Topps rookie, just as an example, and I didn't REALLY dig deep on the '60s-'70s stars, just did commons), stars, relics, autos, etc., but that, we'll have to see, on a case-by-case basis, what your interest level is.
Now, the fun part: I need y'all to email me so we can start working out the particulars of these deals. Cash? Trade? Mix of both? We'll figure it out.
For those who are interested now that you've seen how crazy this is, there are still 22 teams left! You can email or comment to claim your team!
Teams Still Available:
Oilers/Titans (or, just Oilers/just Titans)
