What do you collect?



I want to start collecting something as a hobby. My desire is to collect something with value. It doesnt necessarily have to be an "investment" but I would like my collection to be worth something at the end of the day. I was thinking of autographs or silver bars/coins. Like I said, im not trying to get rich or "go long", just looking to get into a hobby that is worth something. In a perfect world, opportunities would exist to buy cheaper items and expensive items for said hobby. Any thoughts?

I have a coin collection and a baseball card collection. And I have a stack of harddrives that I have removed from machines that I recycled.

I collected baseball cards in the 50s and 60s. Have them stored and will give them to my grandson.

My wife collects these:



It's called Swanx. She has over 100 pair for no apparent reason.

Cigars, most of which are aged and/or discontinued, and most of my collection are Cubans.

re: What do you collect?


all that is not worthy of collecting. if it can burn in a fire its not worth collecting.

i collect gold that i pull from streams. it will spend anywhere in the world and you can bring it with you with no issues. its much safer than money or anything else.

im a gold prospector and will soon be a gold miner. as a day job. plenty of money to be made. im looking at 400 a day every day i mine

To each his own.

I've sold many boxes that I've aged for 3-5 years for more than double what I paid. It's just one of the hobbies that I have, not one that I have strictly for additional cash flow.

I do like to smoke them as well.

These silver coins are what I collect:

Morgan dollars, Franklin Half dollars, Washington quarters, Proof sets.

My dad collected Mercury dimes and proof sets. Brother was into Buffalo nickels. I was big on Washington quarters and have since expanded a bit.

For a newbie, I would advise to pick one of the above, and Lincoln cents pre-1959 ("Wheaties").

I also collect old banks, Shearwater Pottery (Walter Anderson figurines), and prints by Theora Hamblett and Wyatt Waters.

I also have a lot of ammo and about 10 guns. I have a small collection of vintage toys also.

Oh frick, I have about 25 swords, axes and other medieval weapons. These are for when I finish my upstairs movie theater.

Those glass insulators that used to go on the powerlines.
