I had 30 when this thread first started. I think think I have one less now. Gave away two and gained one. Getting ready to sell about a half dozen. I think I did have about 70 at one time. I decided I would rather have a large tobacco collection over a large pipe collection.
A couple dozen pipes is plenty. Getting rid of a lot of tobacco along with downsizing the pipe stable. Heart attack and stent has slowed my smoking down a lot.
