Mainly cards, also the occasional cap, ball, or old photo. It's definitely all good. ;-D

Mostly I just buy cards. I do collect things that I've had personally autographed by the players too. :-)

I don't understand collecting. I know that I'm in the minority, but I just don't get it.

I met Mays and Gwynn and many others but just didn't want an autograph. Call me nuts. I just don't get it.

I collect mainly cards, but in the 90's I went to tons of Jays games and got a bunch of autographed baseballs. I went to a few Orioles games at SkyDome and have 2 Cal Ripken signed balls. And TONS of other autographs. About 5 or so Delgado autographs, one of which is on a game used ball. I've met him 3 times I think.........once at the mall and twice at SkyDome.

I got my picture taken with Roberto Alomar in 1994. That day I got to sit in the dugout with the whole team before the game during warmups. That was cool ;-D I think Lance Parrish is my favourite person I've met. Cito Gaston is the worst :-t

:-° Whew, that's it for me ;-D Don't even let me get started on basketball.....

I collect anything you can call a collectable. With the exception of bobbleheads and figurines. The Starting Lineup figures and Ud bobbleheads or whoever else makes them. I just dont get into those. My biggest addiction is going to games and getting autographs from the players on whatever i have handy.

I collect empty bank accounts and a beer belly. :-D

I actually have a bunch of stuff signed. Most of the 8X10's and 16X20's are of hockey guys (Lindros/LeClair, Griffey, Jr., Simon Gagne, LeClair, Gretzky, and Gretzky/Lemieux). I also have a few signed pucks and a bunch of BAP Signature Series autos. Some of my best memories are of sending cards with a SASE to the stadium and having the players sign them and return them. I gotta check the inventory but I know that I got Pops. :,-( I also have truckloads of inserts and rookie cards, including a mint Lemieux rookie. I really gotta go through my stuff.
