I did a search & couldn't find a thread for this. The titles speaks for itself. What are you into collecting? Baseball Cards? Action Figures? Coins? Vibrators? Whatever...

Me, I have a budding collection of original (no reprints) movie posters. This is what I got so far:

Nerd Alert! I won this in a contest:

That bad boy is signed by Frank Darabont. All are framed in UV resistant, museum plexiglass. Pretty damn expensive but I figure I'm gonna have these things as long as I'm on this earth so I might as well do it right. My next purchases will be these:

If any of you are interested in purchasing any vintage posters I can't recommend this site enough: http://www.cinemasterpieces.com/

They're totally on the up & up & everything is as advertised. And their selection is ginormous. Even if they don't have what you're looking for they'll go out & get it for you. (like they did for my phantasm poster)

I have an antic full of old transformers, gi joes and star wars from when I was a kid. also have tonka trucks, he-man stuff, hot wheels, matchbox, and other stuff from my childhood. I started collecting some McFarlen stuff like his Movie Creatures and what not, but that got expensive quick. Pretty much if its related to the Steelers, I collect it nowadays. That's it.

Oh, tools. I can never have enough Tools.

My freaking wife hordes everything...I, on the other hand, try to get rid of anything not actively being used around our house.

Don't really "collect" anything obsessively. Although I am a Home Theater nut, but money plays a big role on how much of that stuff I can get.

Beer glasses, particularly the small sample glassed they use to have at the breweries. I've got about 70 of them.

Same here... I have a 51' sony widescreen projection. I don't have an IO box so tv broadcasts don't look pristine. Movies look sweet though & that's all I really care about. That's another thing I collect, dvds: http://seahag1221.dvdaf.com/

I haven't updated that in a long time. I've bought alot of blu rays in the last few months. (damn technology always has to progress)

Besides all the Steelers stuff, I collect guns and cars - little cars

I have a ton of cars myself, several autographed. My prise is anything signed by Harry Gant. I have a lot of that.

i kinda backed off of my nascar collection. i was a member of RCCA which was pretty much like having an order form for crack delivered to my doorstep on a monthly basis.

i have about 200 of the 1/24 scales and over 1000 of the 1/64 all in their original packaging.

now i really only collect jerseys, but still love my comic books and football cards

Until about 6 months ago, I lived a hollow unfulfilled life until one day I left the window open and the McFarlane bug flew in. After a few days of violent fever I emerged a changed man....

Up to 40 Steelers now, of which I did 24. But I can put this down at any time and walk away. I swear. :chuckle:

Used to be motorcycle stuff, magazines, some select cards, y'know, lots of crazy stuff.

Now that I have a kid on the way, I collect money. Bye bye disposable income!

I used to collect obnoxious old art deco ashtrays & would still buy a cool one if I saw it at a garage sale or something. I still have my old favorites but don't have them out right now because we don't smoke in the house.

Oh snap! A Kenseth fan. I have the Winston Cup car too, the yellow hooded and black hooded DeWalts as well. And one autograpghed photo.

Everything else in my den (aside from my Jackie Robinson signed ball) is Steelers, Steelers, Steelers. I'll post pics later.

i still have a pretty mean collection of belly button lint stashed away in a box somewhere.

my goal was to one day have it all spun into yarn and knitted into a sweater.

strange thing is it was always some shade of blue. :noidea:

one collection im even more proud of is my 13 steins from all of our local german air force oktoberfests. ive gotten smashed 13 straight years and havent dropped or broken one yet (although last year i fell on my face to protect the stein).

:beerbang:

when i was younger, my best friend had a kick ass scab collection.
