Incredible job for your collection so far! I happen to have very similar goals for collecting over the years such as collecting every English/Japanese print of Eevee/Eeveelutions along with cameo cards/unique other language variations in multiple binders (I have been thinking just to exclude reverse holos altogether for cards that have a holo print, finding LP+/NM reverse holos can be a headache sometimes). Although, my collection is primarily Japanese for many prints due to the English counterpart being priced out of my budget and market availability for some prints (But, I'll definitely get around to picking them up eventually when I can afford it.)
I personally use 12 pocket binders for my Eevee collection in order to fit the prints of Eevee and it's evolution all in one row and I think it looks great aesthetically!
I look forward to seeing updates to your collection thread, it's always wonderful to see other collectors that are as passionate as you about something!
Wow, what an amazing collection! Thanks a lot for sharing. Going after all Eeveelutions is no small feat for sure, but dang you've done an awesome job thus far. I also think it's smart to not care too much about 1st/unlimited edition for the Japanese releases, since those are almost always the hardest to find. And if you've going after all Eeveelutions, there are certainly a lot of them.
As for some remarks:
The Jolteon/Vaporeon Gold Stars are swapped on this page
Are you explicitly excluding Jumbo cards? There are a few unique (and pretty nice) Jumbo artworks featuring Eevee(lutions):
The XY124 Pikachu EX is also available as Jumbo in English (and German, French, Italian, and Spanish); and the XY95 Pikachu is available as Jumbo as French exclusive.
Also, there are two Eevee misprints that you may not be aware of: 1) 1st edition Jungle Eevee with "d" edition misprint. Kinda like "d" edition Butterfree of the Jungle set, but at a slightly different spot and shape of ink bubble. It's also a lot less common to find than the Butterfree, although not a one-time occurrence. I've seen at least five like this:
2) French Jungle Eevee all have the incorrect flavor text, weakness, resistance, and retreat cost at the bottom. It's identical to that of the French Fossil set Ditto (this one is uncorrected afaik).
Good luck with the remaining trophy cards and Eevee Heroes.
Quuador, thanks for the kind words and comments on the collection. I did not know about the 1st edition error on the Eevee jungle card, I will have to look for that one now. I am leaving out jumbo cards for now, although I do have the Espeon Aquapolis box topper, I should add that to the collection photos. On your note on the Gold Stars, for my Japanese binder, I organized purely by release date then by set number.
Update - collection goal of adding the serial numbers for 1st edition from Eevee 079 Golden Sky, Silvery Ocean. It only adds 3 more cards needed, and is one less exception to my collection. Now the only Japanese exception is not collecting unlimited if a 1st edition exists.

This is amazing. Working on a similar goal for my collection. The only difference really is I want as many languages as I can get for Umbreon. Love that one especially. You make me want to go out there and get more Eeveelutions right now.
I made my own spreadsheet for the Eeveelutions and was comparing it to yours to see what I was missing. I noticed you only had 1 Indonesian variant, but there are also 2 Glaceons and 1 Eevee & Snorlax GX with an Indomaret stamp on the card. There is an Illusion’s Zorua by Miho Sugano that has an Umbreon. Just wanted to throw those out there in case you weren’t aware of them.
There's no such thing as bad Umbreon artwork. Only top tier artwork.
ragingkraken, for non English/Japanese cards, I went with the "only if I find it cool" approach. So the French McDonalds with unique holo patterns falls into that, and the Indonesian KFC Eevee does as well. The other Indonesian stamped cards do not for me. I have that illustration contest card in my wants list on the cameo page, thanks for checking and comparing! Always nice to have my master list verified and checked by others as well.

eeveeteam , I know Chinese isn't in your core collecting criteria, but I think the Chinese-exclusive Medallion battle promo has a pretty cool backstory (and a unique stamp that isn't available elsewhere):
HumanForScale, that Chinese Eevee is very cool. I would like to collect more of the unique stamps in other languages besides English and Japanese, however first knowing about them and then finding them is tough. I will keep my eye out for that one though, thanks for sharing!
