if so, let's hear what everybody collects! i collect die cast cars and action figures. most of my figures are horror movie related, movie maniacs and such, but i also have some spiderman and star wars stuff. as for cars, i collect mostly replicas of older muscle cars but if i find anything newer that interests me i'll pick it up. my latest acquisitions are a '69 chevelle ss and a 2002 subaru impreza wrx.
been looking for the wrx for a while. i also collect those little video games that were available in the 80's, like pac man and donkey kong, etc. seems as though i used to be able to pick these up at flea markets for next to nothing until ebay came along and drove the price through the ceiling. oh... i also collect broken t maxx parts! :banana:

I collect firearms, fishing equipment, comic books and shot glasses.

Broken RC parts as well hehehe.....

Used to collect coins, stamps and baseball cards but sold them all to put my kids through private school. They were just taking up too much space anyways.

I collect any and all types of Nascar & NHRA & any type of motorsports memorbelia. I have over 500 die cast most of which are 1:24 scale, Several autographed by Kenny Bernstein, John Force, Al Hoffman plus a few more. My coffee table is made out of one of Rusty Wallaces tires, with a round Rusty beer sign that fit perfectly where the rim would be and a 30" round glass top for it. My walls are covered in autographed one of a kind Nascar, Nhra and Indy car posters and pics that I took myself. Dale Earnhardt, Richard Petty, Rusty Wallace, Dale Jarrett, John Force, as well as many many more. I have one wall in my race room that is covered in sheetmetal off crashed race cars. I have a piece of the original pit wall from Sebring international raceway that I got when they tore it down to redo the track. I could go on forever. I am always on the lookout for anything new to add to my motorsports collection.

Grinch we have something in common, I too collect broken T Maxx parts :banana:

I used to collect beer cans and pilsner glasses, and beer signs, I have about 1200-1500 cans in my warehouse. I have just started selling them off on e-bay.

I have quite an accumulation of belly button lint right now. I wonder how much it's worth on the open market......

if belly button lint counts, i can't imagine why receipts wouldn't. i'd bet this forum has some of the finest receipt collections in the r/c world!:p empty nitro bottles also make fine collectibles.

I started to collect LHS receipts, but I ran out of warehouse space.

I do collect German Beer steins though. I have about 10 of them ranging from about 10 to 150 years old. They go from about 4" to 20 " tall. Some are family heirloms, some I have bought.

I also started collecting US Mint Proof sets. I have 5 of the Silver Proofs. (All the State quarters released so far and man do they look good!) and about five other proof sets from different years.

I almost forgot, My wife has a great collection of my paychecks!

that depends on the length and intensity of color! they can't be included if you ever tried to bleach 'em.

I collect treasure. I have been scuba diving on old Spanish wrecks for years. I also search the jungle for the "buried treasure" but this is never found with X marks the spot. I have a few thousand old reales ranging in dates from the 1500s to the 1700s. Swords, muskets, bottles, cannon balls, a cannon or two and a whole heap more.

Find any old hookas?

By the way, I completely left out that I am a professional collector by trade. It is what I do for a career. So Yes, I'm a collector!

I like to say that "I do my part to keep the economy in check"

Without my company, interest rates would be through the roof!
