After STS-135 was complete, I remember seeing a fact quoted a few times that said that throughout the Space Shuttle program there were 180 payloads deployed, 52 payloads returned and 7 payloads repaired.
Does anyone know if there is a complete list of all these payloads? (As a space cover collector I am interested in deploy/retrieval dates as well.)

I would be curious to see if that data also took into account the classified DoD missions. Granted I don't recall a DoD shuttle mission ever doing a retrieval, but there has been talk of perhaps one unplanned spacewalk conducted on a DoD shuttle mission, the details of which remain classified to this day.
