Hobby Collections Thread
« on: December 31, 2011, 07:23:49 PM »
Guys, let's post what he have collected or had collected through our life, the duration, and maybe include the reason why you stopped collecting them.

1) tex cards - outgrown kiddy toy, mid-80's
2) different kinds of marbles (holen/jolen) - hard to collect variety, mid-80's
3) Marvel/DC cards - too expensive for a kid's collection, early 90's
4) NBA cards - spent more than 50k and decided not to pursue, cards became too expensive and rare inserts invaluable, 1998
5) stamps - tried to continue my dad's 3-album collection when he passed away but decided not to pursue, 2006
6) diecast cars (1:84-1:12) - short stint in collecting and amassed more than 150 cars in less than 2 years, no more room space, 2010
7) flashlights? - still not decided if I'd continue :p

1.  Audio cassettes - started in the 90's.  Mostly heavy metal, grunge and pinoy rock.  Threw 'em out when it got too heavy to transport to our new apartment.
2.  Audio CDs - Some of it I bought pre-owned from "Disk Union" stores in Japan.  Stopped collecting when I realized I can just download everything.

Match Box - stopped when I reached 10yrs old.
G.I. Joe - got bored playing and decided to stop.
Comic Books - stopped when I reached College because of the next hobby...
NBA Cards - became too pricey and the rares are very hard to pull. stopped because of the next hobby...
MTG - too pricey plus, I don't have to time to play and hang-out on card shops to get the cards I need for my deck builds. sold my whole collection to finance the assembly of my new PC

I love love love comics, I used to have Archie/Jughead/Betty and Veronica but it was stolen when I was in college. I love reading everything from Reader's Digest, novels, pocketbooks. I just started collecting paper bills / coins from different countries that I've been and planning to put it in a nice frame soon. I love clothes and shoes but I started selling the old ones and donated the others coz it's clogging my closets.
