    What are some of the items you have cillected over time? I tried to collect girl friends one time then I got married and my wife stopped that. My wife has a large collection of Angels. This thread is not limited to fishing items.

    I have a large collection of sports cards, I havent bought a pack of cards in probably 15yrs. Most are from the 70's-early 90's some date back to the late 50's. I would say i have around 10,000 cards

    We collect shot glasses from all over. I have collected old baitcasting reels for years. Both of my Grandfathers had old time baitcasting reels and that got me started.

    I collected and still have my old basketball tradeing cards. From the 50,60,70,80s. Got some real nice ones. Also have about 1000 different Micheal Jordan cards locked in a saftey/fire box. I cant do much collecting now. I seem to get obcessed with it. Not a good time right now when money is tight. I guess I collect fishing poles too, lol. I got twelve at the present time. I put them in rotation and use them all.

    Over the years I've collected coins, paint stiring sticks, coffee cups, probably some other things in the past. I really liked coffee cups, until I had to cut down on coffee, I was starting a beer mug/glass collection but my wife kinda made me stop that.

    i collect memories-- everything else needs to be maintained/stored/moved all of which leaves less time to fish

    I have one of the largest SPEAS Vinegar collection known. Lots of rare jars and paper material. Wife has over 500 painted label milk bottles she is in love with. I couldnt find anymore speas vinegar items. So I started collecting No Deposit No Return soda bottles. Banking on them being worth something in years to come since everyone threw them away. I have some high dollar ones all ready. Along with my 1/2 gallon Casper Whiskey jug.

    Heres a link to some of my No Deposit No Return soda bottles http://www.angelfire.com/nc3/throwaway/BOTTLEORDER.html

    In the 70' and 80's I collected limited edition prints that I would buy for $25 to $50 each. Now some of those are worth a couple thousand dollars each. I also have the 75 anniversary edition of the Lionel train set in it's original box. Over the years my kin folks have given me a collection of old pistols, such as the Lemon Squeezer (five of these, three with pearl handles), four shot Derringers, old shotguns, etc.

    I collect old fishing lures, for some reason they amaze me. I also, have some other assorted old fishing tackle, like the old green tackle box my grandfather had, I found one of those at a garage sale, and an old baitcaster with the orginal solid fiber glass pole.

    I also collect old coins, and I have about 20,000 baseball cards.

    The wife collects porcelan cats, last count she had over 300, then she also collected shot glasses we have tons of those.....

    Right after we married I started saving all Buffalo nickles and silver dollars I came across. They were still common back then. After about 25 years I had collected several full fruit jars of them. Then while we were gone on vacation couple kids broke into our house. They cashed the coins in for face valve. Lost interest in collecting.
