Who Here Collects Stuff?

During my childhood I somehow mustered up the attention span and patience to collect Pokemon cards. I had a sizeable collection that was noteworthy around my neighboorhood, but I sadly lost them all. Well, I didn't lose them, I sold them at a yard sale for 20$ xD.

Anywho, what do you guys collect? Tell us all about it!

I collected leaves at one point. XD I think I may have been 10 but it was ridiculous. I had a shoebox full of them and when my dad threw them out I was so mad.

Like every other child born in the early 90's, I collected Pokemon cards when I was younger.
I was once into collecting YuGiOh cards too, I suppose.

Nowadays I guess I collect video games.
Although, when I buy a game, my intention is always to play the game, rather than just collect it.

I used to collect rocks. Weird, I know, but I found that when you break rocks you can see the prettiest sparkling things inside. Is that calcium? Or is it crystal? Whatever it is, I called it crystal, and I loved rocks. Still do, actually.

I collect comic books. My collection is mostly modern, as I have neither the patience, funds, nor dedication to collect Golden and Silver Age books. I have a soft spot for The Bat, and I have most of the New 52 Batman titles (including all the various spin off series, like Batman and Robin, Batwing, Nightwing, etc.). I'm also a Watchmen nut, so I've got the original 12 issues, the trade paperback, the Absolute Watchmen hardcover, and a few assorted figures (and a Rorschach cosplay... because Rorschach).

I'm a geek.

I love collecting.

I mainly collect books. I have a very large collection of fantasy novels, comic books, chess books, science books (physics, astronomy, cosmology, biology), and foreign language books/resources. I also collect martial arts movies (especially Hong Kong cinema).

I'm actually pretty obsessed with collecting things. When I was younger, I collected Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. I also had a pretty nice glass doll collection when I was little, but I definitely don't still collect those. A few years back I got craaaazy into collecting manga and bought around 40 per year for two years (and started out with a collection of thirty or so prior to that), but it's not a very impressive collection now since I stopped and haven't bought any for a while. I'd like to pick that up again, though. I've done the same with books in the past, but I only have a few hundred since, again, it's an off and on sort of collecting, and I may start back up tomorrow, or it could be a year from now. I have a pretty large collection of rocks, and I collect any interesting plants, sea shells, insects, and other things from nature that I find pretty or unique. Just today I added a new cicada to my collection, actually. I have a pretty good amount of dried roses and orchids in my collection right now... they're very pretty. I can't think of much else I collect, besides matryoshka things (I bought a very lovely checkers set with matryoshka playing pieces last month). I guess the only other thing that I like to go out and purposely collect would be ribbons for my hair. I have a really large selection and love to go through my big boxes of them and try them out in my hair all the time for fun... but I'm a little shy to ever wear them out in public since I rarely ever see anyone else doing anything like that.... So, I like collecting things very much. :>
 
I collect lots of stuff. When I was younger, I liked to collect dandelions. Err, yeah. I would run all over the field of my kindergarten, and pick every single one I could find. I probably have a bunch of dead dandelions somewhere. Hahaha... I'm also what you would call a packrat, so I sometimes hoard useless junk, though I've gotten a little better about that. I have an insanely large rock and fossil collection from my countless expeditions to gravel piles, though I haven't really had the time to keep searching. Coins are fun to collect, except after touching so many at a time, my hands begin to feel all filmy-like and reek of metal.

I search for four-leaf clovers on occasion so I have a heapload of those too, and I suppose since I keep them pressed, that I collect those. And I like house plants. Not really an item, but I have a bunch so it's kind of like a collection. ;j I used to go to a Catholic school up until fifth grade, and my teachers would always distribute prayer cards. So I have a bunch of those. I am really fascinated by the writing style used in prayers and the illustrations that the publisher selected. What's awesome, is that I can tell you where I received each card and who gave it to me.

--Oh, and fonts. But that's a given for a font savant like myself.

This is a Zelda forum.
I think everyone here is a geek, and is totally okay with that. ^^

I still collect Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards! I can't stop buying a pack until I have every card in that specific card list! :D I have binders and tins full of classic and new cards for both series of trading card games! I love my hobby/life! ^^

I used to collect Pokemon, and Yu-Gi-Oh cards when I was younger. I don't have the money to buy them anymore, so I stopped. [noparse]:([/noparse]
Don't worry, they are sold at a very reasonable price, about $3-$5 a booster pack and $10-$14 per deck.

For the last, say, 4 years, I've collected Bottle Caps from Beer Bottles. Don't know why I started it, probably just for something to do. I don't really pay much attention to it. I've got about 500, which, mind you, is considering I don't drink.
