Elvis Presley...do you collect Elvis Presley cards?( there's a story , I won't tell it!!) It's funny you mentioned baseball cards AND that you made some $$$from them. My sons spent a lot of $$ on USAbasketball cards at one stage, they have loads of them. I suppose I should keep them,I don't think many are of any value. I figure the Jordan ones may have some value eventually...to someone...(expensive colourful bits of cardboard imho Someone made a lot of $$$ from Aussie kids for a while there) They also played Warhammer for a while, that was expensive too.No resale value in the pieces. I am keeping them as sentimental ugly ornaments...all -hand-painted gruesome dwarves and assorted weird foe.
Well, I wish I had some cards of the King, but i dont. I have sold many baseball cards however, still have thousands in my mothers basement that I will pass on to a son if I ever have one.

Used to collect stickers and stamps when I was in grade school. I even subscribed to this Stickers magazine. Then I also collected video tapes of the Olympics, especially the gymnastics competitions.

Now, I just collect cds and U2 stuff. I don't want to accumulate things. It's hard when I have been moving to different places and still planning to move in the next few years.

I've been collecting Vomit Bags(yes from airplanes)for about 10 years now...it's been fun collecting them. I had my high school history teacher bring me one from his trip to the east coast, a manager at an old workplace brought me one from mexico...
I use to stick them on my wall, put now there on a bag in my room somewhere.

Now I collect coasters from pubs, they're smaller and niftier. when I was in the UK, I took at least 2 from every pub-mom says I should put them in a frame...maybe.

It may sound like a broken record, but I collected baseball, basketball, football, and novelty cards from 1986-1993. I started amassing a huge cd collection throughout the 1990's, and today I spend my money on good food, nice drinks, and my girlfriend. LOL

I like to play with them...

I'm not the kind of collector who buys them and keeps them in the box...I tear those boxes open, fix their hair, change their clothes...it's actually a great way to relax.

I use to collect sports cards - football, hockey and basketball.

The last thing I collected was autographed 8X10 photos. I would take pictures at football games and practices and get the best shots autographed. Probably have 100+.

I collect turtle items. I had an extremely large tortoise named Horatio that I adored and so I started buying turtle stuff...I have tons. Stuffed toys, figures, shirts, jewelry...

Hockey cards, specifically Martin Skoula cards. I pretty much have them all now. I thought I'd start on Milan Hejduk, but he has way too many. I also have 2 Skoula jerseys--one from the Avalanche and his Olympic jersey from the Czech Republic.

Bambi statues--nice ones, started by a china Thumper I inherited, it's from when the movie first came out. I actually found a retro looking Bambi to go with it...

I am such a collector! I always have to be collecting something. For years it was Breyer horse models.....until about 4 years ago (right around the time I became a U2 fan, actually) I decided to sell all my plastic horses and use the money to add to my real horse collection...I went out and bought a nice Thoroughbred (who will herself be contributing to my horsey herd in February ).

Of course, since becoming hopelessly enchanted with U2, I now collect their stuff. I am working now on their early and rare vinyl. My most prized U2 possession, I think, is the photography book that Bono produced after his trip to Ethiopia....hoping one day to get him to sign it. Now if I could just figure out a way to sell my collection and get a real U2.....
