What do you collect?

Recommended Posts

I collect pin back buttons, hence the screen name.


I have well over 40,000 buttons in my collection, and growing.

Used to collect park maps, back in the days when Park fans used to be able to write parks and get free stuff,like press kits and wall maps. Heck BGT sent me a bunch of buttons for my collection ages ago.


So what's in your shoe box?

I used to collect Beast Wars toys until I was about 7. I had like 20 of them and I could tranform them without the instructions.

I also collect park maps of parks I've been to, and other park stuff.

I collect post cards. I've been doin' it all my life. I don't even have any idea how many I have.


This may sound weird, but I also collect cd albums. With the popularity internet downloading, ipods, and things of that nature, not many of my peers seem to buy cds anymore. I love to, so I've started to call it a collection.


Lastly, I like to collect Indycar and Formula 1 memorabilia. I particularly like to collect pictures of myself with drivers. That might not seem like a normal collection (or a collection at all), but in a sense it is. It's a little bit of a challenge sometimes. It's a collection I can only add to but a few times a year.

I collect the strangest things. I tried a lot of the typical collectables and since they are kind of easy to find, it starts taking up too much space.


My weird collections

Theme Park Steins - Pre-80's

Mispelled Mugs (My Favorite is Knoebels in "Elysurg, PA")

Old Banks

Handmade WV Glass (Pilgrim, Blenko)


and ...


Poorly registered Money

I collect videogames... Yeah I said collect... Mainly I classify myself that way because I don't finish the majority of games I own despite the fact that I want to. Of course the fact that I am over 90 games on the PS2 alone could have something to do with it.


Oh yeah Monster Hunter pwns you I am over 80 hours in it and I play when I can put together some 2-4 hours (unfortunately not recently as I got sick and that pwned me for a few days).

I've been collecting keychains since I was 8. I have over 350. They are connected and haging along the top of the wall going around my living room. About 80 of them are theme park/coaster related.


It almost makes me feel old because I can say "I remember back in the day why you could get a keychain at Disneyland for $2.50, now its $5 or $6."

I have a large collection of Disneyland related things, most of them haunted mansion. I also collect DVD movies, action figures, theme park maps and brochures, T-shirts, opening day movie tickets, happy meal toys, various things I come across that I think are cool, and my strangest collection would have to be my hotel soap collection. I just started the soap so I only have like 3 bars. :? Do MP3 files count? Cause I collect those too.
