How many is too many?

Im trying to rebuild my credit and have done ok so far with high risk cards. I am wondering how many cards are too many if I keep the balances below 10% on the ones I use and pay off the others? Should I keep the low limit cards since they report a positive history? Im sure this is all covered somewhere else, but I tried search and didnt find anything in search... thanks in advance Peace

Keep them as long as they aren't costing much money.
