Do you collect any random crap?

I realize a lot of people here collect random DMB stuff (playing cards, posters, coasters), but does anyone collect any other random crap?

I ask because I like to collect original horror posters from the 70's and 80's. I fall in and out of buying, but lately I've been back into buying some of these. I love the way vintage movie posters display, particularly old horror films because they tend to feature pretty unique images/artwork. I own a bunch of Halloween, Suspiria, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Exorcist, Friday the 13th, Black Christmas, etc. one sheets (posters) from that time period.

You have any random collections?

I used to collect baseball and hockey cards and had my dad's collection passed down to me, but I haven't done anything with them in a long time, but yet still refuse to give them up.

Yeah, I have a shit load of early-to-mid 90's NFL cards. I must have 100 different Steve Young and Jerry Rice cards. Probably another 50 Favre cards. I don't think I've even opened the box they're in in four or five years.

I was strictly a MLB/NHL guy and wouldn't even pay attention to anything else. I had maybe one NFL pack and an NBA pack and the only basketball card I kept was a David Robinson I was also all about those Starting Lineup action figures.

I collect body parts. Only ones that can fit in mason jars though.

Did you mean to write "Do you collect any random carp?" cause if so yes, yes I do.

One of the few toys I kept from my childhood, specifically so my kids could play with them, which they do. I recently bought new rubber band and screws from ebay to repair them.

I still have most of those horror posters in the OP.

Funny, though, that these days I donít collect anything and pretty try to live as small as possible. Amazing what a decade can do to our perspectives and hobbies.

During quarantine, I've rekindled my collecting of digital DMB tapes. Doesn't take up any physical space.

I collect vehicle license plates. Not as active as I used to be, but I have a few new ones to add to the collection I keep back home in MI in Momís basement, much to her lament. I have a few hundred, some dating back to 1911. Eventually, when I can buy a home, Iíd like to do a wall of them in my office, strung together in columns and across the wall. Iíll probably just have to settle for my favs, though: my lady will not tolerate an entire office of that
