That isn't enough to be noteworthy, let alone the "credit card king".
Mine was more than that before a divorce caused some problems. I never considered that to be unusually hight.
Currently $209K with 13 cards, one of which is a $1500 Kohls. I still have a BofA with a $46K limit even after failing review to keep my other BofA $58K and Amex $82K.
