Other items you collect.

Post by scott elkins on Fri Mar 14, 2008 7:14 pm

Recently, I started back collecting antique Winchester and Remington shotguns (spending more time on Gunbroker.com - that is why my posts are down here). As far as collectibles go, these shotguns are about the only items I have collected that interest me almost as much as Vintage Cards.

What other items do you collect? question

Are you collecting shotguns because of your crazy neighbors? Laughing

The only other things I collect are Blackburn Rovers jerseys and cooking stuff.

Old pennies, pre-civil war are the size of a quarter, and contained one cent worth of copper at that time (1793-1856)





WWII related cards (even when they turn out to be ice cream cup lids, or worse.

I used to collect Phish posters and a few other pieces of concert art, but have pretty much stopped since there's no more Phish.

I kinda collect Arsenal-related jerseys - either Arsenal kits or the international jerseys of their players. I'd love to add a game-worn shirt but I'm apprehensive enough about the domestic memorabilia market. Buying that kind of thing from across the pond seems like an even bigger crapshoot.

I have one of the world's largest private Titanic relic collections. On there is a number of Titanic cards too, one that some consider the most valuable regular issue nonsports card. It's the best of both worlds.


I also collect quality matchbooks and matchcovers.

I immediately flashed to the movie Snatch and the scene where Jason Statham points out that his gun is real and that the other guys have "replica" written down the side of theirs.

I almost forgot, I also collect soccer (football) cards. Here are a few of my favorites.

1902 - I think of this as the e107 of soccer (football) cards.

Jerry, what backs do have on your n570s? I'm not sure if I still have my notes on that set, but I remeber seeing at least 3 different overprints along with a blank back.

Come on Jay, you've known me long enough, Jacklitsch is Steve Murray. mallet

With that out of the way my Kickapoo set (Monarch N570) has the standard Kickapoo back, to-wit:

Doh Embarassed Sorry about that. Old age is creeping up and short term memory is slipping. I better start writing names down before I write a response
