I also have...
400+ hotwheels, around 40 guitars, at least 10 cool bikes and a bunch of cannon fodder, a lot of Harlequin dishes, a dozen church keys, 20+ hymnals, we got Lego people all over the place... A pretty decent scifi library (do books count?) and I've been collecting wiring diagrams for guitars since before the internet. I've probably got 30 pairs of crazy socks and a similar count of Christian T-shirts and crosses. Oh! I've also got a ton of model railroad stuff and a few vintage power tools (and hand tools) that are cool but I don't need as all the newer tools I have are better. I can look around the room and see 4 bike trophies, a stack of wooden cigar boxes, a mug full of pocketknives and probably close to 30 different footpedals for guitar... I need a bigger ranch.

I don't really collect as much as I used to, mostly because I found I hate dusting more than I enjoy collecting, but there are still a few things I like to collect.

1. Old bicycles and bicycle parts, though I'd like to scale my collection down once this pandemic's over. I don't have much, but I have more than I can use.
2. LEGO/K'NEX. Still have most of the sets and pieces from when I was a kid, but now I've got LEGO trains and K'NEX roller coasters like I wanted when I was little.
3. Music, doesn't matter if it's on vinyl, CD, iTunes or whatever. I love listening to music, and I especially love finding music that I've never heard before.
4. Movies and TV shows (mostly childhood cartoons) on Blu-Ray/DVD. I like my streaming channels, but nothing beats owning a physical copy.
5. Stickers. My college toolboxes are evidence of that.
6. Parts and pieces related to my 1964 Mercury Comet.
7. Car magazines and books, occasionally.

I used to collect toys and action figures related to my favorite movies and cartoons, like Cars and Transformers, but I got tired of dusting stuff that I did nothing with. I've either sold or should sell most of that stuff.

or I guess I could sell it and probably afford one, his is probably old enough to drink. I just want it really bad anyway. He has been taunting me with it for 18 years now. He can barely reach the .... pedals and he won't sell it to me for what he paid
hang on back on topic, you know that show hoarders? The producer tried to talk me into filming an episode while we were doing that Netflix maybe contract thing

band shirts, hmm yeah I still collect those kind of forgot about it. I have boxes full from concerts. Most have never been worn or worn once or twice. I was actually trying to talk the wife into making me a comforter out of a bunch so I could throw it in the van. When I think of all the ones that ex-GF's stole, it bums me out, because those were usually the rare and unreplaceable ones. I also forgot, I collect skateboard decks. Gotta bunch of em. Looking for a Steve Olson SOS cutout deck from 81 if anyone ever comes across one.

I save weather graphics. When I find them I add to the pile. It has evolved into Earth Science topics too. This is from a presentation I did at a magnet school in Mayport Florida back in 2012.

I have a small collection of O gauge tinplate toy trains. A few from the 1920's and 30's, but most are from the 50's. Mostly Marx with a smattering of American Flyer, Lionel and Hafner.

Also a small collection of air rifles, ranging from the late 40's to a few 21st century pieces. Some I customized too. Not sure about posting "gun" pictures on the internet anymore.

I don't collect things any more, but I used to. Somewhere, I have a box with maybe a hundred or more overpriced HO scale cars and trucks and some buildings to go with them. When I was a kid, it always bothered me about Hot Wheels and Matchbox that the vehicles weren't in exact scale to each other, with the trucks being especially offensive to me, so when I discovered the HO scale vehicles in middle school, I spent way too much of my landscaping money on them. I figured someday I might build a miniature town full of darkly humorous touches, like hookers, people fighting, someone shooting the engine of a broken down car, and killer rabbits surrounded by victims and gore, but I doubt that will ever happen.
