What do you collect?
Why do you collect what you collect?
Do you collect for the thrill or as an investment?
I collect a variety of Rams items. I have around 5000 Rams football cards just because I like having them. I have a football signed by the entire 1999 team after winning the Super Bowl. I didn't get the signatures myself - the guy that got it was a customer for a corporate sponsor, but he didn't want it and I bought it for $100.
I collect some lithographs and oil paintings of Rams players. I just received an oil painting of Roman Gabriel under center. The painting was done by another Rams fan (www .franli-collectables-and-creative-media. com/CreativeMedia.html) and he is working on a Deacon Jones for me. I have some limited edition lithographs from Gary Longordo of Eric Dickerson and Merlin Olsen.
I have a collection of Hallmark Star Trek figures. I used to have all of them, but a divorce 5 years ago alleviated me of most of them (including the original USS Enterprise from 1991).
I collect book on football. I hope to one day finish writing a book on the Rams that I have started and such NFL books are great resources.
I like to collect firearms....again, divorce alleviated me of most of my firearms.
So what do you collect?
