Obviously most of us collect sports cards, but is your collection strictly sports cards?

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?

I have tried autos a few times. It just does not excite me that much. I have done all different kinds of memorabilia, but I have never displayed any of it. Most things just sit in those big Tupperware containers.

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.

There's nothing boring about what you collect Shawn. I enjoy the post you make in the new pick ups thread.

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.

My collection is very random. It is also very large, which creates many problems. It needs to get smaller and more defined. I get on a roll every now and again and get more organized, which helps me sell extra or unwanted cards. I really need to do more selling/trading in the near future.
