I used to collect comics, football and baseball cards, stamps, coins, autographs of sports figures and movie and TV stars, penants, those mini liquer bottles, guns/rifles, etc... now they just collect dust.

I inherited my father's WWII memorabilia he brought back from when he served in Nuremburg in 1945. It includes a German helmet, several medals, some flags, an Italian rifle, an M1 Garand, etc. as well as his old uniform and medals.

Guns and knives mostly. Everything else I have hardly amounts to a collection. I used to be into coins, but I gave all of them to my cousin who is way more into it now.

Used to collect sand from beaches I had been to... and used to collect coins. A nomadic lifestyle has since got in the way of collecting anything, though I do have a bunch of North Korean souvenirs (soon to have more )

Ooh -- that reminds me... do they still use telephone cards there? I used to have a bunch of those. Of course, that was when everyone used those big green public telephones, not cell phones...

Between me and my dad we've kind of did that sporadically, back when it meant something I'll probably end up ineheriting all of them along witht he software. Setup a museum.
trs-3 (disfunctional)
trs-80 4p (2 of them)
Apple 2E
the portable laptop version of the trs ? trs-100?

Sports cards, baseball, football, basketball, and hockey! I havent bought any in years and years, but I still have several unopened boxes. I do have 5 bikes, but since I ride them I dont consider them a collection. More a tool for my riding.

Gee I haven't used one of them for about 5 years. That can be my homework (to find out if they still exist). I know back then many public phones in Tokyo didn't allow them because of a group who was able to recharge them.
On the side, are the mobile phones in China and US etc able to make purchases via your linked credit card? For example, my phone (and most here now) have a scanner on the back and you just wave your phone over the vending machine or at the register when shopping, and your credit card is charged.
