I was read the back & forth and saw a question about collections one of the people had. I came across a thread from a couple years ago and saw it was pretty active with people showing theirs. I thought it would be sweet to start another.

So post your collections! Or things you'd like to start collecting!
  • cmeyers

    small start but i've been collecting playing cards. people do some pretty wild stuff with them.
  • iamoath

    I started collecting records last year, so my collection is still small. I'm also starting to collect Field Notes since they have really cool editions.
  • cmeyers

    yeah i have a bunch of records but i'm not sure i consider it collecting. i buy records i listen to. is that considered collecting? or buying music? i guess i have some pretty limited ones that could be considered collectible but i listen to those too.
  • iamoath

    Haha you're right, Corey. I guess it would be more like buying music instead of collecting.
  • Jason Carne

    I have what is quite possibly the most extensive library of antiquarian lettering/sign-painting/monogram/alphabet books in a personal collection anywhere (that I know of). My studio is basically a lettering museum.

    Other collections of mine:

    40-50 screen-printed posters
    1,500+ CD's
    100+ vinyl albums

    I also have mini-collections like ephemera, pennants, cigar boxes, business cards/trade cards, packaging and a huge lot of baseball cards I still have from my childhood.
  • Random

    I collect sneakers, not as much anymore, but I still have more than 20 pairs (100+ in the past).
    That was before the days of sneakers costing $200+ a pair and camping out for limited editions. Those were the good old days!
  • Cameron Latham

    I collect the bones of my enemies.
  • Matt Borchert

    I don't really collect much of anything, and I'm very happy about that =).
  • dbdesign

    I used to collect horror movies, have over 800 titles in my collection and some really cool stuff. Since moving to the new house... and growing up a bit I don't want "stuff", I'm looking to sell my whole collection off soon enough.
  • Geoff May

    I used to collect McFarlane action figures. I've got about 400 but haven't bought any in a few years. Getting ready to put them up on eBay. I also collect guitars (have about 30) and old Honda motorcycles (have 8).
  • Tyler.nu Design

    This is probably more than half of my hat collection.

    I have give or take 80 hats.

    Started about 5 years ago with a mishka hat.

  • 8-bit ZOMBIE

    I collect everything and anything from the 80's. Mostly toys, lunchboxes, etc. My biggest collection being NES games. I have around 450 games, about half have the original boxes, manuals, etc. I also have a giant collection of NES related crap. (Books, magazines, VHS, merch, promotional items, etc.)

    That Gremlins counter card is awesome! I have a pretty cool Hellraiser one.
  • 8-bit ZOMBIE

    Thanks! It's one of my favs. I'll bet the Hellraiser one is equally as rad!
  • JeremyRichie

    I'm so stoked about things people collect. I really want to start recollecting toys I had as a kid I have a few kicking around but just don't have the funds to really dig in and get the stuff I want. I blindly collect stuff anything that looks cool. I love patches and stickers, little boxes and containers. Coors cans and bottles rule. Field Notes is one of my active collections I actually seek out. Everything else is mainly aimlessly hoarding in an organized manner.






  • Myth

    I collect prints mainly, I just wish I had the space to hang them all.
  • Silver Tongue

    Vinyl guy over here, I wonder if anyone would be down to reboot the vinyl thread or start a new one?
  • CoreyThomas

    I collect Creature from the black lagoon and wolfman memorabilia. I also have a huge collection of buttons and cool boxes like cigar boxes, and various cases for things.
  • Jupit

    If collecting means "buying stuff and then not throwing it away", I'm collection records (a couple of hundred, but just what I listen to, not because they're rare), books (see records) and shirts.
    I only get stuff I like or I'm interested in, not for collector's reasons.
    I have a room full of boxes with comics and music and film magazines (remember those?). But they're mainly from the 90's, so they aren't even worth a nickel. Or a dime.
    Oh forgot: still have a ton of vinyl and plastic model kits (Horizon Marvel stuff, Screamin' Star Wars etc.)
