What else do you collect?
« on: January 11, 2003, 06:27 AM »
We all obviously collect Star Wars stuff (since you're here reading this post), but what else do you all (and your significant others) collect?  As for me, I also collect:
  • "Greatest Hits"/"Best of" CD's (about 800 from the 50's to present)
  • DVD's (see DVD thread)
  • Baseball Cards (1950's - 1990ish)
  • Coins (mostly just domestic)
  • HO Model Railroading stuff
I think that's about it for me...

As for my wife Patty, she doesn't collect squat, and it drives me NUTS!  Everybody should collect something!  I really wish she'd pick a hobby or collection, as it would make it a ton easier for me to randomly buy her stuff on my own for her birthdays, Christmas, etc.  She's the only person in either of our families who doesn't collect anything.  Weirdo... (but don't tell her I called her that)!  Oh well, I guess she can keep pretending that she collects Star Wars figures, since she winds up pimping me so much of the new stuff before I ever manage to find it in the stores!  What a gal...

JediMac, I also have an HO model railroad. I have not been doing as much as I used to with it but would like to start soon. That and Star Wars takes up a nice sum of money. Each engine is around $60 these days. My grandfater and my great grandfather both worked on the railroad. My great grandfather worked on the C&O Railroad and then the Chessie System and thus now, CSX. My grandfather started on Chessie and went along when they turned into CSX, so that inspired me some to get into the hobby.

I don't know if it's considered "collecting", but I do have large amounts of CD's, DVD's, and books about WWII.
I gave up on Simpsons toys last year.
I also collect empty beer bottles ( mostly Alexander Keith's and Moosehead) ;D

. Airmiles  ;D
. I buy figures from different toy lines when I see something I like, I have a couple of the newer GI Joe figures as well as a couple of the new He-Man figures.
. I have a few nice knives although I wouldn't say that I am a knife collector(Cold Steel, Spyderco).

A million cards?   Holy crap I thought chuckles had a ton!  I was just going through my stuff BTW and pulled out 15 Sammy Sosa Rookies :)  Out of the "commons" box

I recently started two new collections:

Stikfas
Justice League (Of which I have them all except Hawkgirl who ahs not been released)

The Stikfas are pretty dang sweet but a bit on the pricey side.  A $2 reduction would sell these puppies like wildfire
