What else do you collect?
Posted 18 April 2011 - 03:54 PM
I like to have a somewhat diverse collection, so I have a good amount of autographs as well as some game used items (not game used cards, but the whole item). Collecting Red Sox game used can be a little expensive and Patriots items are almost impossible to find. I've really cut back on my autograph collecting, I only add a few here and there and mostly only freebies. There are only a few autographs I would pay for now, but I have spent my fair share in the past.
For the longest time, I subscribed to the quantity over quality, but I have since come to my senses and am a bit more particular about what I purchase. I'm finding I am enjoying my collecting more now and I don't have as much stuff cluttering up my house.
Anyone else want to chime in?

Cards are really the only thing that I have ever stuck with. Tried stamps and coins. But they do nothing for me.
I guess I am pretty boring.

You hit on something big in your post, not being able to display items. I try to limit my collecting to what I can display. Of course, I don't stick to that 100%, but that is how I judge if I REALLY want something, cause my space is limited.
The autograph collecting has lost it's luster with me. There are a few I will never part with, but for the most part, I may end up selling most of them. I also collected McFarlane figures for a while, I think I'll end up selling most of those too, except for a few which I will open and use as display items.
I have a few coins in a box somewhere. When ever I get a coin that's different I put it in the box.
