    Laugh all you want but I used to collect Beanie Babies (ex-girlfriend got in into it). Those lil bastards were worth some $$$$$.

    I collect transformers and have 85. They are all the original G1 collection. Most still have original boxes and eight have been unopened with the original seal still intact. 

    I also have a collection of guns I inherited from my grandfather, although I do not really collect them just have them all in safes. I do not go out looking to buy them since I have way to many now. I know, you can never have to many. Trust me I have to many. 

    I collect old tools. I like the craftmenship in the old hand tools.  I have them all hanging on my wall in my shop. Most of them are rusty and dirty looking but that is the look I like.

    Yup, a few build-it-yourself Gundam kits.

    Started a record collection last year. I'm only at around 20 or so. I only want stuff that's somewhat rare, limited press, or not availabily on digital. Also tracks that I would DJ in the future if I ever learn to mix vinyl, which is hard as hell. 

    I have several hundred records, most from decades ago (some beyond that) ................... a few may become rather valuable at some point, I hope.

    I'd say the best part of my overall Reds collection is my collection of individual autographed balls from the entire Great 8. I still need to add a Sparky ball before I consider that particular collection complete. Finding a decent ball of his isn't easy, unfortunately. I haven't looked in a while, but it does look like their value has dropped considerably in the last few years.

    Everything my son has came from a personal meeting.   I think that is the best part of his.

    I currently have about 100 bottles of beer that I am trying to drink down. I also have a huge collection of beer glasses. And about a year ago I started keeping all my bottle caps to do something with one day.

    That's cool. Only a few of my Great 8's are in person, but I have met most of them at one point or another through various events. I think Perez and Griffey are the only two I haven't met in person. George Foster is by far the best of the bunch.

    Do you have any carpentry skills?  Google "beer cap table"

     

    Pretty cool, what you can do with a simple piece of wood and some clear epoxy.

    Browse Discogs.com for some pricing ideas. HUGE money in used records these days. I'm regularly looking for rare 2-3 track EPs that go for $40+

    I don't but this was one of the things I thought about doing. I've also thought about getting one of those bottle cap holders in the shape of a state or the USA.

    Thanks ....will do! 

     

     

    A cursory look indicates I have a lot of potential value in vinyl.  :)

    I have about 15 years of consecutive Sports Illustrated covers. Also have the full articles and pictures of anything that was Cleveland or Kentucky related during that time. At some point I might start trying to go backwards, only because it's not all that hard to do anymore.

    I used to collect cigar wrappers.  I was going to do something like this.  We moved, and I think I lost them.
