Got a bunch of bottles, mostly Hawaiian pops but I'm not much of a collector.

Haven't gone through this entire thread but I'm wondering if I am the first to say driftwood. A hiker, especially along the island's coastline, I have a hard time passing up interesting pieces of driftwood -- little pieces and big heavy ones. It's not unusual for me to make a return trip with a chainsaw to make the special cut to release an artistic piece. More discipline is needed for me to finish working these pieces in true works of art.

As a kid it was basketball, football, and baseball cards. All of which I still have but no longer acquire.

Might be the only on one here, but it's oddities for me! Antique- current, I like a lot of anatomical items, animal and human ( skeletons, bones, skulls, preserved specimens). Antique medicine, tools, surgical instruments etc. Some a bit macabre. Several animal skeletons that I've re-articulated myself.

I have to say I find it very interesting reading about what members collect outside of numismatics.
I have not added any Zebco 909 reels since posting on page 1 but I do have a few more wine corks...

I had a HUGE Coca-ColaŽ collection, but sold 99% of it when we moved to New Jersey. I also had a small collection of items from Shelby American that I collected when I drove a 1968 Shelby GT-350, but again, sold just before the move.

Coinfrog, USSID18 asking you about his picture. Would be interested in your opinion, since you're knowledgeable about paintings.

Cobalt Blue glass, I have so much its embarrassing. Haha I was super tired of getting cookie cutter Walmart gifts that I challenged a few family members to find me flea market blue glass items instead. It took a life of its own and omg I love it so much.

The other thing I cringe that I collected in the past is Barbie dolls - 1990s mainly. I thought at the time they were so beautiful. Boxes and boxes of boxed Barbie dolls. I no longer have any desire to have them but still have an entire closet full of uhaul boxes of Barbie dolls. No one wants them, I've called every childrens charity in my area, offered them as gifts, even my local Goodwill (who I now know are epic jerks) rejected them. Huh.

Not really sure if you would call it collecting, but I have more than a few dirt bikes. PW-50, JR-80, KLX-125, RM-125, KDX-220, (2) DT-200 plus 1 parts bike so (3) and my son's KTM 250-SXF. I don't touch his, but do all the maintenance on all the others. I have a restore going on with 1 of the DT's. I have mine already on the road, yes, road worthy dirt bikes. 2 strokes to beat even. This one is going to be my daughters. She is a competent rider in the woods, and that is great training for the road.



Here's the chair I sit in deciding what to do next, (gets a lot of use) right beside the JR tucked in the corner, yes this is in my basement, yes I take flack over it, she also knew I was a bit loonie before we hooked up. "It's to cold out to work with tools" is my excuse. .

When you buy on eBay make sure you don't get it then realize you bought the wrong thing 3 minutes later - me

I collected Pokemon cards when I was a kid (I remember my dad giving me flack for how much he spent on them) and had a folder full of them. Sold them a few years ago for a couple hundred bucks which wasn't bad, but now seeing the resurgence they probably would've sold for a whole lot more.

My wife was in the same boat, giant box of old Barbies and accessories. We took lots of pics and posted on eBay with no reserve, and it fetched a nice little chunk! They were more 70s-80s though, not 90s, maybe still worth a shot.

Me personally, just baseball cards, during the pandemic I decided I need a small stack of every year of Topps going back to their beginning in 1952 (well they had a weird playing card thing in 1951, but those don't count). Nothing past mid-80s though, when I stopped buying them as a kid, thus no nostalgia value.
