    I'm just curious, what do my fellow Guru's collect? As a younger man I collected cards, comics, & old computers. Keep in mind I was maybe 14. I had full sets of Magic the Gathering(beta, unlimited, ect) when they first came out plus, Star Trek, Spell Fire, & Wyvern. I also collected card sets from all the major sports. I made quite a lot of money off the cards & comics when they were at their peak & had quite a lot of spending money as a young man. I remember pulling rare Shaq rookie cards out of a $1.50 pack of cards & selling it on the spot for $120. I also went down to the local newspaper store that also sold comics at face value, then getting a lift to a comic book store & selling it for $35. I still have tens of thousands of cards & about a thousand comics left. Great times. I haven't collected much in the past 12 years or so but have recently started collecting watches. Below is a pic of one of the few old computers I have left, plus some of the cards. My father collects & restores old cars, I post some pics of his collection later.

    Warhammer. Lots of it. Perhaps too much :p

    I swear if I had all the cash I dropped on Warhammer I'd be a very rich man!

    I stopped collecting things in the true sense of the word some time ago because of the clutter this caused. I have about a dozen boardgames if that could be called a collection (a friend of mine has about 300)

    j/k I don't actually collect anything. Except maybe 1p and 2p coins, but that's not because I want to, I just hate how everything you buy ends in 99p or 98p.

    Lol go to sainsburys and get them changed out for cash if you have that many.

    Not collecting anything really other than hoarding computers :(
