I used to collect Bell souvenirs from each airport that I landed at. Right now all of them are in storage and I haven't been to any place new in a while :(.

I also did some comic collecting until it got too expensive. I now collect computer parts to swap out in my various machines.

.My current project is to collect rounds from every American war. So far the only war I've got them from is the Civil War, and for the last year I've been trying to get rounds from the war of 1812. Lesser known wars like 1812 are actually very difficult to find rounds from, so I'm hoping eventually I can find some.


I have rounds from Vietnam, both sides, 5.56 and 7.62, World war 2, Korea and Civil War. Thats about it.

The latest additions are: a broken top of a desk, a bendable hair clip, and a rectangular piece of metal with sharp corners.

^ I think there is a term for you:

Hoarder.

Seriously, you need help, badly. Collecting useless trash isn't good.

As a kid, I used to collect yo-yos, primarily Duncans as they were extremely cheap. I had one of almost every color, and then had duplicates as it had the term "hyper" added onto it (Hyper Butterfly, Hyper Imperial, etc). I also collected other manufacturers as well. I still have a few of them, a far cry from what I had in the 6th grade. I probably had enough yo-yos to play with a different one each day lasting a month before starting over.

Now, I don't have a large collection, but pretty much have stuff that's theme park related whether if it's t-shirts (which I have lots of), park maps, primarily one park from a span of several years, games/simulators (NL, RCT), videos, and of course, photos.

Hi TPR

I collect park/coaster related books and films. And boy, can I bore people about it. My library began with a handful of coaster books... then it was downhill all the way.

- Items for my theme park trip scrapbooks. While the book may not look the best, it means a lot to me. Right now I have around 100 maps from last year from SF Great America, SF St. Louis and SF Great America's special Fright Fest maps. Most will be cut-up (if anyone ever needs one of them, let me know and I'll be happy to trade park maps.) I just try to take stuff from each park visit.

- The one for me has always been Pressed Pennies/coins. I try to buy as many as I can that are site specif (I refuse to buy generic ones.) When I was planning my WDW trip which got canceled, I had a budget of over 250 for the coins alone. Right now I'm working on the ones Great America used to have for my scrapbook.

- MST3K on DVD. Should have almost all episodes by the end of next month from the DAP-DVD project and other sources. Next up is the old Rhino releases.

- Pride Fighting Championships on DVD. I should have ever event except one by the end of the month.

Finally there is my collection of over 2000 wrestling DVD's. I have no clue what to do with them and can't sell them due to being VHS to DVD copies. I probably have only watched 300 of them.
