    Shot Glasses.

    I have around 100 at this point, from all over the world. My friends & family all know about my collection, & they always bring me back shot glasses to add to my collection.



Same here.....I have about 70 of them so far. I keep them all hanging up on the wall in shadow boxes.

(Here goes my masculinity.) <- OOH A CLUE FOR ANONYMOUS DAY!

Koala Bear items. This began when I was four. I am now 30. Each year for Christmas or birthday (or both), I have gotten a koala bear, be it stuffed or a figurine, or a poster, or whatever. I have quite the collection now.

*sigh* and Mary Moo-Moo figurines. SHUT UP, THEY'RE CUTE.

Ummm... BEER, FOOTBALL, HOT GALS. Yeah. That'll work.

I collect sports cards as well. Things are a bit out of hand these days with all the choices and limited edition cards, but I still get a set of Topps Baseball cards each year. Other than a gap in the 80's, I have complete sets back to 1972. I've been collecting since I was 5, way back in 1970.

    I collect books. Rare first editions and such. Some signed by the author. Whatever strikes my fancy without eating up my rent.


I too collect books although my collection tends towards the fantasy and science fiction end of the spectrum. Currently, I've got between 6500 and 7500 volumes (I really need to update my catalog) on shelves or in boxes in my basement. Of late, I've been trying, on a very limited budget, to collect originals of some of the lesser lights of the silver age of science fiction. Particularly, I've been working on adding more Keith Laumer, Murray Leinster, Karl Edward Wagner, and James H. Schmitz to my collection. I love the Eric Flint edited reissues of Laumer and Schmitz, but I still want the originals for my collection.

Unfortunately for my wallet, a "friend" of mine recently got me started playing Magic: The Gathering again after a 10 year absence so I've also started collecting that again. I'm already up over 5000 cards although I probably won't be adding any more until Guildpact gets released early next year.

We won't even discuss my wife's Precious Moments collection or our music collection because those topics depress me when I realize how much more work I need to do in order to get those collections displayed.

My collecting of sports cards dates back to 1967, but all my sets end in early 90s as marriage and kids now take up all that "collecting" time and money.

I also collect pez dispensers - it gives the kids something to get me at Christmas and Father's Day in addition to the wacky ties you may have seen once or twice in CRZ's world.

My main interest is folding pocket knives, mostly production models, some custom jobs. I also like model cars from the old Can-Am racing series and Formula 1.

I wasted soooooooo much money collected 25,000+ comic books. I have sold a few hundred on eBay though.

I quit comics about six years ago and got into numismatics.

I've just started collecting Bibles and other religious texts, abeit unconciously. I have about four versions of the Qur'an, seven Bibles, three Books of Mormons, and varied other texts.

Shotglasses and WWE Classic Superstars Action Figures. I finally had stopped wasting all my extra money on Simpsons and Star Wars figures (so proud of myself for buying exactly zero Episode III figures!), and this line had to come along and knock me right back off the wagon. Some people may wonder how anyone could pay $20 for Bushwhackers dolls, I wonder how anyone could not. Ted DiBiase comes with a little Million Dollar Belt, for fuck's sake!

I'm not the only one! Thank Christ. I'm a little more freakish-I have bizarre combos and flavours that I'd never dream of putting on food. The majority I do use, tho.

Also(NERD ALERT) movie trailers. I'm a budding editor so they fascinate me.

I'm more of a completist than a collector, if that makes any sense. If there's something that I find myself enamoured with, I'm not happy until I get everything I can that relates to it. And that goes for directors, authors, bands, my wrestling DVD/VHS collection, comic book characters, etc.

mmm - error cards. I used to love those. I've still got a rack pack with the 88 Topps Keith Comstock error on the front, and an 89 Topps Bob Welch error on the back.

I used to collect baseball and football cards, but quit 10+ years ago. I'll have to contact Java, I probably have the sets he needs :-)

In the "completist" realm, I have the Green Bay Packer Yearbooks, except for their first (1960). I'll be paying in excess of $500 for that one, when I finally decide that I've found the right one.
