    Do you have any collections? People collect all kinds of things, from normal stuff like those spoons at truck stops from each state to odd stuff like your baggage tags from every trip you have ever taken.



    So, share with us your collections...

    ....my Grandfather OBM, used to have a little collection of those. When I was about 9 I took them, not maliciously, and lost a few of them out on the golf course.

    He was not very happy.

    Used to collect matchbooks from restaurants, hotels etc. when I was travelling a lot. It's kinda neat to look through them sometimes and cost was right.

    This is going to seem very odd, but I collect racing silks and things that have racing silk images on them.

    Shot glasses/beer glasses. Any vacations(very few) or special occasions where these were available I get one or two.

    Used to collect sports cards, still have them but stopped collecting years ago.

    I haven't collected much of anything in a few years. I'd say the main thing I have, is Baseball/Football/Basketball/Hockey cards, from early-mid 80's, on up through about 95.

    I've been meaning to go through them and see whats in there, I know I've got quite a few A-Rod Rookies, Shaq Rookies, Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, Peyton, etc.

    I collect the normal stuff like wrist & pocket watches, sig 226's, and star wars figures, lots and lots of vintage goodness...also looking for old jewelry made from extinct or endangered corals has become a new obsession.

    Coffee Mugs. . . Switched to shot glasses a few years back as they take up less room.

    I started collecting pocket knives when I was a kid. I have around 100 of them, most of which are junk. The collection hasn't really grown much over the past 10 years or so.
