    I used to be really into baseball and hockey cards. Now, the only thing I really like to collect is to finish the set of the original 58 Hardy Boys books. My dad had all but about 12 from the 1950s-1970s printing, and whenever I go to an antique bookstore I see if there are any of the ones he doesn't have from that vintage. I've found a good number of them.

    I collect Playbills.

    and by that I mean I have one playbill from when I went to go see Sound of Music at the Fox.

    But I'll soon be adding Les Mis to that collection.

    When I was a kid I used to collect Pokemon cards.
    Right now I'm trying to collect all The Simpsons DVDs (though that's never going to happen now since from what I heard, they're not making any more DVDs since they think people will just watch them online). :frowning2:

    Currently I don't collect anything unless clothes count (I have lots of fun socks)
    Things I've collected in the past: rocks, marbles, toy cars, pokemon cards, keychains, snowglobes, beanie babies, swords, lighters. I have a sizeable amount of dvds, video games, and music too.

    I collect metal bottle caps. I have roughly 20ish caps in my collection. Not a very big collection, but I don't really go out of my way to collect them. I don't have any rare ones though, just a "regular" variety :grin:

    In real life, I collect art, Chiptune music discs, old circutboards, crystalline mineral samples, and a few other things.

    In video games I collect purple objects, energy weapons, and things I think are pretty and shiny and "Must grab and display in my base"...

    I also collect notebooks. Always with the intent of filling them with writing but I tend to buy a new one before I'm done with the first ten

    Also, knowledge. I collect knowledge

    Apparently I also collect neckwear. As of last count I have nearly 50 ties and bow ties. I am partial to ties that are subtle and have a tasteful yet whimsical design. In partial to Brooks Brothers, vineyard vines, Southern Tide, Polo, and Ike Behar. Even better is when I get it at a steal. Yesterday I bought a linen summer bow tie from Ike Behar for less than $10.

    I pick up one souvenir whenever I go anywhere interesting, although some people might say I collect woolly jumpers and cardigans (and they'd be right).

    Used to collect Poke'mon stuff when I was a kid, right up until my mom found religion.

    Then I collected comics; particularly Marvel and especially Spider-man. (I've still got that collection.)

    Started trying to collect knives, but I don't have as many of those; maybe six.

    Now I don't really collect much of anything, mainly because I'm usually broke. [​IMG]

    In a former life, dragonfly things and Jadite. Now that I don't have a house of my own and live between several households, I just collect memories. :slight_smile:

    Thanks for sharing so far guys. Some really facinating collections so far. I'm especially jealous of the Star Wars ultimate collectors edition Lego. I believe a new millenium falcon set retails at around £3000 on eBay in the uk.

    Just to throw my own in, I actually collect the build-a-bear MLP edition. I have around 15 of them and I think there is only about another 3 in the current collection but I believe they will be releasing a load more soon...yay

    Happy days :slight_smile:
