Chase Amazon Visa (use only for amazon purchase since I'm a prime member)
Chase Sapphire Preferred (got it for promotional sign up but will downgrade to regular sapphire before annual fee)
Chase Freedom (use for rotating categories 5% cash)
Capitol One Business Spark Cash (flat 2% cash back but only $5k limit)
Citi Diamond Preferred (18month 0% APR on $15k balance)
Citi Thank You ($500 CL card I can give to friends/family that I need to buy something for me)
Business Platinum (heavily used prior to getting Plum card and need to keep in order to get the 20% back on points when booking travel with points so still worth the $450 annual fee)
Business Plum (main everything card, generally opting for the 1.5% but occasionally will take the extra 60 days)
Blue Cash (an older version that gives me 1.5% after spending 6k and 5% cash back on gas after $6k)
Discover It (only used when Discover has special promotions for things I am purchasing)

I have 3 cards all with visa emblems.Would like to add just 3 or 4 more. A mastercard, Discover card and maybe a CitiBank. Having $20K-$30K in credit card spending is more than enough for my day to day spending habits.

32, but I manage them well and they all serve a purpose. (and this is considering that I just closed 5 this month)
I find that hard to believe...unless the purpose is to increase your CL max.

10, see Sig.
In February of this year i had 3, so 2013 has been quite the year for me adding:
Chase Amazon Rewards (Feb)
Citi ThankYou Premier (Feb)
Amex SPG (May)
Chase Freedom (May)
Chase Sapphire Preferred (May)
Chase United MileagePlus Explorer (May)
Banana Republic Visa (June)
I'm also an AU on an Amex BCP. I'm looking to add 2 more cards to my wallet before I call it quits, but that's after a few stints in the garden. Amex Hilton HHonors (Nov) and Citi Hilton Reserve (February).
Goal is a total of 13 if you include the AU.

1 Signature Visa
1 Walmart Store card that I don't really know if I ever want the Discover version of.
I really need to quit this habit!
