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

To paraphrase Wayne Slob, I don't so much collect things, as not be arsed to throw them away.

I collect the New Naturalist series of books, they run to around 150 at the moment and the only ones I am missing are half a dozen that are fiendishly expensive (£400+ each). I also collect books published by the Folio Society, banknotes and coins from the places I visit and Panini sticker albums (the equivalent of baseball cards).

Other stuff I just accumulate, like books on motor racing or North Korea, without any real plan, as they don't form a "collection" per se. Although I have complete sets of volumes of certain works, like the Complete Record series of motor racing results (14 volumes).

Incidentally, the only place I have ever seen a $2 bill was Cambodia. Probably a fake, but it's in the collection anyway, most $1s seem to be fake after all.

This is cool, Eric - and I bet if you look hard enough you can get one for not much more that SteinerSports charges for the 2008 seats.
Do you have it set up in your basement or rec room etc?

Canada used to have $2 bills when I was growing up. Still have a few stashed away. Also have an old USA $2 bill that I got 5 or 6 years ago.

I wanted a seat from 2008, and that wasn't long before my now wife moved in.  So that's how that went...

I used to like to collect baseball cards and comics - then branched into getting autographs at local shows before it became too commercialized in the early 1990s. Recently I help my son with his card collection, which may be more fun than the first time around.
SteinerSports has done a wonderful job at subtly, or not so subtly, pointing out how the memorabilia market (usually for manuafactured memorabilia items with autographs) was ridden with fakes, and they are there to combat all this.
Brandon Steiner now often contracts Yankees to be exclusive signers for his company. They guarantee authenticity, but at outrageous prices. A Derek Jeter signed ball... for $350. Larsen and Berra signed photo of the no hit moment... for $600. Just crazy.
So when they basically bought the rights to sell anything from the 2008 Yankee Stadium demo, you knew they'd milk everything out of it. They have proven not to mind if the merch moves slowly.
Rossi, they may still have seats.
But I do understand, they are bulky and to start off a marriage with that in the middle of everything is not ideal to all spouses.

When we move into a house I'll get it.  Not ideal for apartment living without a basement.  I made my case for putting it on our balcony, but that didn't go well either.  And I really don't have to want to sit in it all the time.  That shit's uncomfortable.

I have a small collection of overpriced Godzilla "figures". They are actually more like models, since they don't have articulation in the joints and are not poseable. I just sit them on the shelf and look at them. They are all made by a particular company and they release a new one or two every month. I only get the ones I like, but I have about 10 now.

 I've got  a buddy who has a couple of seats from US Cellular (Sox Park) before they did some renovations about 10 years ago. He keeps them out on the patio.  He told his wife, "hey, they were designed to be outside anyway".

I mostly collect baseball memorabilia. Have most of the Topps sets dating back to the mid 70s. Started a 1960 set awhile back and only have about 10%. Always loved that design.

Collect lots of White Sox stuff from going to their annual convention (have some game used stuff, autographs, bobbleheads, etc). Have cut back quite a bit, as everything basically needs to fit in my 7' x 10' "den", the only room in the house my stuff is displayed in.

For you guys that aren't into baseball cards anymore, Topps started doing a "Heritage" set back in 2001, which is a new set with current players using the design from 50 years ago (ie, the 2001 set was the 1952 Topps design). Pretty cool idea and the cards are nice to look at.

I've done comics and sports cards off and on for the last 30 years. I have have amassed a collection and sold it off several times, including a whole store. In 2007 I started buying Topps Chrome Football cards and have a small collection of those. I also started buying comics again but vowed to not spend more than 50 cents for a single issue. It has been fun.

I also started picking up a few vinyl albums which I plan to decorate my man cave with when the new house is done next year. I love the artwork/design of albums from the 70s and 80s. I mostly have 80s Metal/Hard Rock like Van Halen, Judas Priest, Rush, and the like. However I picked up the Elton John Greatest Hits album today at a junk store for a buck. The cover made me laugh, so I bought it.

I have a bunch of vinyl albums that my parents left behind that I've been selling on eBay the past couple of years.  The Beatles albums (especially the "White Album") and Jimi Hendrix's "Axis: Bold As Love" were probably the most valuable ones I had, but I still have have a bunch of others from the '60s and '70s that I'm trying to sell for much cheaper if you want to look through them.

Woah!  I thought I might have been the music nerd of the board.  It makes my approximate 2500+ CDs and 1000+ CDRs and 300+ pieces of vinyl look rather shabby!

Books, books, and books.  They are of all topics but the majority deal with wrestling, Spanish, entertainment, history, comedy, Christianity and cooking.

How many books about the making of The Three Amigos can there be?
