1:18 scale TV and movies cars, most are from James Bond movies but have other stuff from the likes of Batman, A-Team, Magnum etc. I also like collecting soundtracks from movies and TV must have about 200 now. I used to collect action figures but the line I was interested in is drying up, but I still have my full set of enemy Red Shadow vehicles and figures from the 80's Action Force line which was the British version of G.I. JOE.

You collect non-alcoholic drinks?

 

As for me, you know those fruit stickers you get on apples and bananas? Like Fyffes, Grannie Smiths, Del Monte, Chiquita etc. Well I like to put them in the bin right where they belong.

Action figures... Action f*cking figures. I proabably have over a thousand figures ever since I collected them when I was a kid. Call me an idiot and other stuff for collecting figures, but it's an avid thing I did and still do sometimes

 

 

BTW how the f*ck do I post my own pictures in this forum? the image URL doesnt work wich frustrates me to death.

Just googled up a site that finds values for diecast cars and already found some that I own and dude, I'm sitting on a small fortune :O

 

Here's the site if anyone else has a diecast car collection (though I think this is more for NASCAR)

Other things I've collected: Linux Distro install CDs, incidentally because I was searching for something that I liked, and had more than enough CDs and not enough foresight to test in a virtual machine, now I burn new ones up just to have around. And flannel shirts, I don't have very many, but I do have more than most people, and all the wonderful patterns make me want more and more! :) I used to have a jar full of Italian phrases, which I started after listening to the "Learn Italian" CD they play in the bathroom at Macaroni Grill. It was lost after we moved, probably good, because I bet I was butchering the pronunciation.

I collect, but I can't really say I have a focus. I'm big into old coin op stuff and love my collection of arcade machines and juke boxes.

 

But I also have a pretty weird collection of (some valuable) books.

 

My Hotwheels collection (all mint on cards) is pretty deep with some value. Not too long ago I sold a few on ebay.

 

Vintage horror movie marquee posters. Some of those have some crazy value.

 

I don't really collect art but I have bought and commissioned some cool artwork.

Big box games, Biker Mice action figures (can't remember why, but if they're on a flea market, I'll buy them) and we also used to collect Matchbox. We still have most of the big buildings (Police building, bank, pizzeria, gold mine, carwash, etc.).

I have a collection of international coins but nothing to brag about. I'm also trying to collect all 50 state quarters which is proving more difficult to do.

Yeah, most people are like 'you can buy the entire collection!' .. that's not the point. Collecting is exactly that, collecting. I find and found satisfaction in finally buying or finding another piece for my collections, it makes it worth while. Gives you a story behind your collection. Even if I were really wealthy, I don't think I'd buy collections in whole. I like the hunt, that's the thrill.

 

In my NASCAR collection, I have cars that are duplicates, not because I made an error but scoop that sh*t up while you can! Double the payout or double the fun, however you see it. I have a pretty decent POGs collection too if anyone here was into those during their prime. I'll search for the collection and snap some photos on it too.. I have a pile of sh*t that I've collected over the years and lost track of.. don't even get me started on baseball cards but I love pogs.. I have some pretty cool ones.

Nothing actually. I'm sick of being surrounded of useless things. When I was younger I collected a lot of stuff which now simply dusts as I don't need it at all. The less you have the better.

 

 

These are very carefully selected, only the very special few make it in my collection. 2czdq9z.jpg

My dad worked in various mines so he had some awesome minerals (rocks of a considerable size with crystals) as well as fossils and stuff. My favorites were the pyrite crystals...God dammit maree they're minerals

I collect soccer shirts. I'd call them "jerseys," but I know a lot of you Brits would squirm at that term :p (what do you call them, anyways? just shirts?)

 

I've been doing it for about 15 years, although my collection with regards to that time frame isn't that big. I have about 30. Thing is, I'll never buy a new one because the prices are ridiculous. I've only ever bought them on sale, or when I happened to trade with someone else. So it's kind of hit or miss. The international shirts are my favorite due to the lack of sponsor; they're generally much better looking in my opinion.

 

I'm definitely open to trading as well :) PM me if you're interested.

Sports rookie cards for me. I have everything from Lebron James to Dick Butkus.

Fingers crossed it will net the wife and I a nice little chunk of change some day.

Do they still sell Beckett books?

 

I remember growing up my dad bought them all the time because they gave prices and value on sports cards. I have so many baseball cards as well, I should probably see about getting one of those again.

Do you also happen to travel around the Balkans in a wagon?

 

Here's some videos of my collections:

 

Old Persian stamps and some banknotes

 

Playing Cards from around the World

I used to collect Rocks and Coins. I still get coins from my dad but I'm too lazy to put it in my collection. I live in Canada but I've been trying to get quarters from all the different US states. As for rocks I just collected anything that caught my eye. I'll edit this post another time with pictures.
