Default The what else do you collect thread.

I used to deal heavily in coins and currency, but could never bring myself to sell this. Yes it really is from 1776.

On that note anywhere between 450-600.. sometimes higher if the market doesn't have many for sale out there.

For example I have a note from 1846 from Levenworth Kansas called an Obsolete, Kansas obsoletes are VERY rare because of the turmoil there before the civil war, many buildings (including banks) were burned down, and the paper currency with them, so it is exceptionally rare, might see 6-8 for sale in a year or less.

That's a cool hobby because it forces you learn American history. I mean, if you want to be any good at it that is.

I collect modern stamps, not a lot of them, but when they put cool ones out I'll grab a sheet, like Marilyn Monroe, John Wayne, the Muppets and of course my DC comics sheets!

I also collect comedian autographed photos like Johnathan Winters, George Burns, Don Knotts, Leslie Nielson, etc...

That's really about it outside of comics anymore.

I used to collect b sides, rare imports and rare vinyl releases from different indie, punk, hardcore and metal bands...

Space became limited and my gf reminds me OFTEN that I'm not in a band anymore and need to grow up, so I sold most of it.

Held on to some of the vinyl that had some sentimental value, but I sold the rest. It was time for someone else to enjoy.

Other than that. I have some worthless baseball cards from when I was a kid.

Here is the Kansas note I was talking about. I was wrong on date, it's 1854.

I've sold some stuff to that guy as well. Can't remember what off the top of my head though. I just remember the name. Maybe he should have focused less on comics and more on winning a Super Bowl...

Legos.....got any ??

I am getting back into Magic the Gathering as well. Was a fun game back in the early 90's and it seems to be exploding again so I have ripped a few boxes for inventory and working on trying to buy a few collections to build decks with.

I also collect robots,Orange Crush and board games pre 1972

Haha. Sorry, man. I had to say it. He's definitely a great guy. One of my friends is a big fan and has met him many times.

It really depends on how you value your cards,what comics you are chasing TBH.
I have a shop but I RARELY deal in new books.
If you are into spiderman I did pick up 2 different collections last week. Filled my missing slots and moving the rest. Them I can do well on. Have a nice chunk in the mid 200;s that will CGC at 9.8

Anyway, let me know what you have and where to go from there.

I used to be a DCI Judge back in the 90's and make the tourny rounds through 8 states. Got dull as the cards started to die so I moved on. Game has changed so much now that playing catch-up is almost laughable

Besides time, is why I don't play that much anymore. I don't like how they got rid of ratings, plainswalker points are dumb. At one point I was over 2k in limited and low 1900s in limited. Also, plainswalkers themselves are too powerful in general. Honestly, I started to sour when they got rid of staples like counterspell.

I have been selling off a lot of my innistrad rares on ebay at really good prices but I have a ton of play sets from Innistrad and Dark Ascension as well as stuff from the other 3 previous expansions and 2012

That's way cool. I don't necessarily collect stamps but my great grandfather gave my grandfather gave me (I know, a little confusing) some stamps and I mean a ton of them. He told me that it was only 2 books of them and there was a lot more that he had. I looked through and there some pretty crazy stamps in there as well as cool ones. I can never picture myself collecting stamps but I enjoy looking through them from time to time.

Well, I am looking for magic to buy and sell, while cherry picking cards I want in the process. It is the only way I will be able to get back into this due to how volatile the market it. Seems that just prior to a new set being released, demand drops to the floor just in-case card A is outstripped by a new card in the next set

PM me card info,card count,price and the type of books you are into.

I remember in 92 I think, buying the arabian nights MTG box for half off, the store manager said none were selling, bought I think 15.00 a box, 5 of em..Sold em about 2 yrs later for a lot more..Then again got lucky..It was wild then it dropped out..Like Valiant titles..Hit big then died suddenly.

I used to collect Bball cards! But my luck soooo ever tremendously that I got tired of it and now I'm into comics again.
BTW that 1776 note is pretty cool. Money from USA independence time
