The Pursuit of Jacoby

Jacoby Ellsbury.
Boston Red Sox centre fielder.
A quick search through Beckett tells me that there are 257 cards depicting Jacoby Ellsbury from 2005 to 2008.
A refinement of the search tells me that 96 of these cards are 1 of 1's.
Wait a second... 96?
There are 96 cards that a collector like myself never has a slightest chance of seeing, let alone owning. What is the point?
There are a further 55 cards limited from 5 to 100 and another 43 cards that are limited anywhere from 100 to 2008.
So in reality there are only 62 cards without a specific print run that I have a real chance of collecting.
Sounds like an achievable goal.
