Another one who collected baseball cards, though my collecting mainly consisted of the acquirement of unwanted hordes of 88-93 cards that belonged to people 5-10 years older than me, and buying mixed card/pack lots at the Kmart or elsewhere.

I do have some cards older than that, at least one for each year back through 1958!

I'm slowly paring them all down to the brands and years I like the looks of and my favorite players that date to that era, but that's a job that's going to take a while to get back to, not to mention finish.

This is Tonto, my favorite snake I own.


Is that his natural coloration, or part way through a molt?

Biggfredd, that is his natural color. He is a piebald, same recessive gene as a paint horse basically.

And this is Crazy Eyes, my hypo het albino female Boa Constrictor when she was a baby.

I finally figgered out the word I think you meant, now please explain how being heterozygous makes things cheaper.

A "het", the word you just figured out, (heterozygous) means they carry but do not show the simple recessive gene. (not all color patterns are simple recessive, but albinism, and piebald is) Hets are substantially cheaper and you can throw one homozygous male to several different het females for a bigger profit margin with less paid out on the parents. I will let you do the Punnett Square to figure out the outcomes yourself.

In addition to coins, I collect the empty bottles from beers that I have enjoyed (a terrible waste to save full bottles), beer related glassware (+ the occasional shot glass) and Steeler memorabilia. Trouble is if I choose to add a new bottle to the collection I have to pick one to discard. Don't feel like building any more shelves & no more wall space.

Way cool thread. DM1975, JustCarl and others, you have a unique way to protect your coin collection. I too have a few weapons, none that can crawl around my house. I also have a few old clocks. When my grandpa passed, he had about 300 in his 1100 square foot house---yea, it was a hoot.

@jeffrose: An earthquake would wipe out your cool collection. If that were mine I would tack them down with plasticine. :) This is just me but collecting liquor bottles and cans seems like a "teenage" thing to do, kind of like trophies of naughtiness. XD

Anyone else remember POGs? I gave away the bulk of mine but I saved the best and coolest looking ones. Same with Lego. I can't bring myself to throw away cool things. Like comic books. The difference with my comic book collection is that I don't care about condition - they only have to be readable copies because that is what they are meant for, which kind of invalidates my love for AU coins, but ah well.

JeffRose - All of that Steeler stuff and not a single Yeungling Bottle? Shame on you!

I miss my days in PA!
