Default Your Favorite Thing to Collect

Is it baseball cards? Or maybe old Playboy magazines. How about comic books? So if u like to collect things what are they?

I use to collect baseball cards, but now I collect History books for the purpose of having a large library one day.

I also collect different writing pens. My parents use to collect different matchbook covers from restaurants and etc.

So tell us what u like to collect even if its weird or odd. Even if its collecting your mother's old bras.:lol:

I've got a collection of Hall-of-Fame autographs. Right now, I've got about 45 and am always looking for more of them.
I also collect baseball cards -- I buy the Topps box set every year.

I collect shot glasses from everywhere I travel. I have most of the state (38) and a few other countries.

I have heard of a lot of people that collect shot glasses. My buddy drove with me from Kansas to Washington D.C. last year, and we stopped in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Pennsylvania and Maryland to pick up shot glasses for him.

I collect Major League Baseball ballcaps. I have one of every team in the league, except for Baltimore and Pittsburgh.

I also have the ticket stubs to nearly every ballgame I have ever attended.

I have collected comic books since the age of 7. Yes I am a geek. No, I don't care b/c I found a woman who accepts me even though I also play video games.

Anything w/UGA on it becomes part of the collection.

Shot glasses are cool. I also like collecting coffee cups that have the different states on them. Or a sports team.

That would be awfully nice of you cat. It is not necessary, but if you come across one, why not? :thumbup:

Thanks bud.

I used to be a big baseball card collector but I've been pretty much priced out now that I have better things to spend my money on.

These days I really only collect PSU stuff. I'll buy pretty much anything with a Penn State logo on it.

I collected basketball cards as a kid, big-time, I remember the Beckett (?) magazines and I'd trade cards with friends, go to the local card store ("Squeeze Play"), etc. Still have them all, maybe they'll be worth something by the time I have kids.

I now collect fine cigars and wine bottles.
