Structuring 10,000 numerical pages for Google

What's the best way to develop tiers when products are in a specific order?

I've been handed this site that has ~10,000 products that are labeled 0000-9999. As it stands now they're listed 30 to a page with Next/Previous buttons that go on for practically forever -- you'd have to click Next 333 times to get to the end -- and because of this only the first 200 pages have even made it into G according to the site: command and the other 9,800 are MIA.

The products are meant to be viewed numerically; in other words as a user you'd want to be able to find #6,454 by knowing that it's after #6,453 and before #6,455. I'm trying to figure out the best way to restructure this from a dial-down perspective, that is also more spiderable to G.

My first thought was separating them into 10 groups of 1,000 and then having 10 subgroups of 100 each, but that seems awfully cumbersome. I just simply don't see any other way to do it. I'd be glad to hear any ideas though. Thanks.

In five pages you could link to 66 pages each.

Make five mini-site map pages to link to those.

All of the 1000 products will be only two clicks away from root.

Yeah, that's probably the best plan. It just seems so ugly :) Not sure what else there is to do. At least that way G can find them all.

I have trouble believing that any such product could exist without any alternative way of drilling down to the item you're looking for. Do you actually have to wait for someone to search on "6,454" in order for the site to show up anywhere in the SERPs?
