The only thing I really collect still, and this year was a pathetic attempt at it, is old boxing cards. Unlike Baseball or Hockey cards which have tens of thousands of cards floating around, I would guess that there are less than 1500 total cards from the early 1900's to the 1950's, making it a reasonable pursuit to try and collect portions of earlier sets. My preferred set to try and complete is the 1951 Topps set with cards like this

Not much anymore. I lost most of my collections during Katrina and am not in a position to replace what I lost.

I have about 60 or so shot glasses from all over the country. Whenever I go somewhere new I try to make it a point to pick one up, even tho I rarely ever drink from them. We have a side cabinet with a glass door in our kitchen that I display them all in, looks pretty cool really.

A few years back I started collecting the 1973 Warner Brothers Glass set that was peddled through Hardee's I think. It started when I ran across one at a flea market and I remembered that my paw paw had the same glass when I was a kid. Little did I know when I started that their are 18 of the bastards. Lol. But I am now up to 16.

Back in the late 80's, early 90's I collected a lot of Nascar stuff but the market got flooded and I stopped. Now I pretty much just collect anything Duke sports-related. My office at work has Duke stuff all over the walls and shelves but my office at home I keep all my good stuff. Have every Sports Illustrated that Duke basketball was on the cover framed or waiting to be framed, have a piece of the old Cameron Indoor floor..tons of autographs. Have a Durham Herald from when they won the title in 2001, my friend who's the lobbyist in Raleigh was a reporter back then and was at the State Legislature the day or so after they won the title and Coach K brought some of the players over, he got it autographed for me, has Coach K, Battier, Casey Sanders and Chris Duhon's signatures. My favorite thing thought isn't in there yet, last year on my 40th Birthday my brother and nephew gave me a game worn autographed Miles Plumlee jersey. They went to the ACC Barnstorming tour that year and my brother went down and bought Mile's jersey and had him autograph it to me for my birthday..very cool..

Giants and Yankee items (have papers framed from SB victories and WS, including 1947 WS Yankees, a seat from the original Yankee Stadium-wooden, not plastic, discarded during 1974 renovation) etc....
Various MLB & NFL items (World Series & SB programs, etc......)
Gave up on Baseball and sports cards years ago. Raditch is right about the overage in numbers of those.

Raditch, those boxing cards are awesome!  Do they have Turpin, Robinson, Lamotta, Marciano in the set?

Yes I concur in regards to the boxing cards. How many cards are in that 1951Topps set Raditch?

Hockey Autographs and game used jerseys and sticks.  I sold off about 80% of my collection when I bought my house a couple years ago.  At one time I had over 1000 CD's but I just digitized everything and offloaded them onto my brother, save for about 30.
