Default do folks here collect other stuff?

Not sure where to post this thread, but...

Vintage cards are really my favorite. But I am now also into collecting coins, Buffalo nickels in particular. So much to the point I have joined PCGS and have a 25 coin submission now in progress. It is exactly like submitting cards - you hold your breath for the day the graded are posted - anxiety and all the other emotions, good and bad.

Then there is Star Wars stuff - I gotta hold myself back on these collectibles. But a few well chosen Yoda's and Darth Vader's look cool around the house. Plus my kid really likes them. It is hard to keep them in original packaging with him around, oh, well.

So besides cards, what other collectibles are you into? I want to get a feel for if you all are as crazy as me.

I collect large cents, and have been doing so for about five years. My chain cent is an NCGS Good 6 (the Early American Copper people grade it VG 10, net 8), but all my other ones are raw. I much prefer them that way.

I collect calories. Does that count?

It's a side effect of a passion for cooking and competition BBQ. The competiton BBQ stuff takes up any hobby dollars the cards and memorabilia don't.

So it's pretty much just cards and memorabilia for me.

Collecting ex-wives sounds expensive Neil. I hope you and your son can make the dinner again this year at the National.

As for collecting other things.....well, besides cards I collect lots of tobacciana surrounding the cards, wrappers and boxes and etc... surrounding the cards, and last but not least Type 1 photos used to make cards.
