What do you collect???

When I was young I used to collect baseball cards, lots of fun and it has paid off some in recent years. These days I collect CD's and DVD's. Currently i have 250 plus CD's and about 45 DVD's. Of course its hard to build a collection when you are broke all the time... So what do you collect if anything???

Honestly, I really do collect U2 stuff. I tend to mostly collect promo items (Staring at the Sun kalidascope, Best Of Helmet, that kind of thing).

That takes up most of my time. I do have quite a few DVDs and too many CDs but I don't really consider that a collection.

Stuffed animals


I have way too many of all of the above and have NO idea what to do with them when I move to England.

Magnets..... it didn't start out as a consious thing to collect. But, about two years ago, I took a look at our frig and realized that I had magnets from just about every place I have visited.

I also collect U2 bootlegs and now VCDs. And I've found I'm now starting to collect books about them and any magazine they are in.

I used to collect comic books. I still have them too with there backboards and bags so it keeps them nice and neat. Started back in 1989 and I have about ~500...

hopefully someone will want to buy them when it comes time to sell!

Besides U2 stuff...


I haven't bought a new one for awhile though because I was spending too much money on them.

Well, this is so geeky and embarrassing it probably belongs over in Zoo Confessionals ...

but I keep all my concert ticket stubs in a notebook although I've never shown it to anybody. It's actually quite impressive ... geek factor aside. I was a concert-going machine back in the 80's. I can't believe all the people I saw...and the money I spent...

Bonochick, you could be my niece's new best friend!

I have answered this in another thread..so to spare u

stamps,photographs, plants,animal figurines.

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.

I have a thing for pigs, especially potbellied ones, so I keep my eyes open for cute piggie stuff, my family has given me lots of stuffed pigs and figurines etc. I'm gonna get me a potbellied pig someday when we have a bigger house and yard
