Wow thats a shocker right there I'm surprised that enderkevin13 got banned for that but that's not any of my business so.

Let's get back on track here.

There's another thing that I loved to collect is the guinness book of world records. I started collecting guinness books back in 2000 and the 1st book I bought was 2001 so right now I have 2001 to 2016 world record books and this fall coming I'll be getting the 2017 issue of the guinness book of world records.
Yeah I'll be collecting a ton of guinness books within all the years to come and I got to have every year to make it into the record book myself but that's going to take sometime though but its going to be a challenge.

Oh yeah! I remember collecting Yu-Gi-Oh cards... until I realized the cards I've been collecting are fake. Then I just lost interest and gave them to others.

I'm planning to collect coins, but so far right now I only have two collected.

I used to have a whole box of Yu-Gi-Oh cards which shared the same story. How do you differentiate a fake card from a real one? I remember I used to have Exodia in a single card, lol.

As for collecting, I used to collect tooth brush packages as a kid. I loved to arrange them and make starships. I remember having pictures of them. Somewhere.
Nowdays, I don't think I collect anything that I hold dear. Either I've lost that side of me or have nothing of interest to collect.

You might as well say, "I like collecting air molecules, because it keeps me alive."

Shady grammar, the effects/level are wrong, wrong card colors and some monsters have ridiculous attack points. I've seen one which is listed as more than 8000 which can end the game quickly if played.

I collect miniatures from BattleTech.
143 BattleMechs and OmniMechs, 45 Combat and Support Vehicles, 8 Infantry Squads, 2 Aerospace fighters, and 2 map-scale DropShips (not pictured below). And it's still growing.
To think, fifteen years ago, this little collection started with a Jenner, Kit Fox, Crab, and Nova.

What I use to collect is McDonalds & Burger Kings kid's toy's back when I was 10 or 14 years old. I had a big huge boxes of McDonalds & burger King toys.
How i got them was my aunts and cousin's use to work at McDonalds & Burger King.
Anytime that I go and see my aunt see always gave them to me because I collected them all. But today there all gone now well except that I still have some toys left but there are old nascar toys but those I won't get rid of because they might be worth something.

Retro gaming stuff, including:
Games (NES, Genesis, DOS, Windows 9x - may expand to other systems in future but right now those are what I've got)
Systems/hardware (The aforementioned consoles and accessories for them, and some old PC hardware)
Shovelware addons (Not just Doom ones, but Quake, Duke, Warcraft 2, etc.)
Strategy guides

Also books, particularly fantasy novels/manga.

Iron ingots/blocks, metal, normally nonrenewable resources that become renewable with the right mod, things of that nature... oh and redstone contraptions. I absolutely love collecting those. I recently came into a collection of villagers as well... but hard to say if those are things or sentient people.

I once collected video games but I simply don't have the money to pursue that anymore.

I have a pretty large and still-growing literature collection. Not just the classics like Frankenstein, for example, but also a huge philosophy and religion collection as well, from several points of view.

In addition, working on a collection of sci-fi novels as well. Just got Roadside Picnic, the book that started the whole Stalker series. Want to work on the Horus Heresy 30k novels, but they're fairly expensive for how many there are.

I like to collect is baseball cards and I think I have an 1970 to 1990 card's and I've also have some basketball, and hockey collectable cards. I don't know but I heard that if you have a rare or rookie cards in your collection its worth a lot of money.

Does anybody still collect any baseball, basketball, football, or hockey cards?

Cause its hard to find cards like these anymore.

This may have something to do with what happened in the 1990s. When several companies popped up offering exclusives for this and that, the market got so saturated with sports trading cards that they became less valuable than the cardstock they printed on.
This also happened to comic books at exactly the same time.

I don't collect collectible cards or trading cards, but I do collect playing cards...

(Click to embiggen)

Among the notable decks in this shot:
  • The Gigantic deck in the lower-left.
  • The really tiny deck in the center-right.
  • Dead-center, you'll find the Blackjack Casino cards from FanGamer.com, a deck of Final Fantasy VI-themed playing cards, complete with Kefka jokers and a card with a haiku on it: "What have you to lose? / Just your life, and that was free! / Ante up, my friend."
  • The "Solitaire.exe" deck, center-right, to the right of the tiny deck. This is an officially licensed deck based on Susan Kare's original cards for Windows 3.0 Solitaire, sold at Areaware. This deck actually has jokers, too, which were not originally in the card designs and were provided by Susan Kare for this deck. Also note the pixelated edges. They don't deal or shuffle very well due to the very coarse texture of the cards, but they at least seem durable enough for regular play.
  • I own an awful lot of Coca-Cola-themed decks. There are two still in the pack in the top-center of the photo (their front designs are the boring basic Bicycle-type cards; their commemorative tin is right underneath them), but then there's the transparent plastic ones just right of those, which deal very nicely due to the air-cushion effect.
  • Other cards that deal really well: the somewhat unassuming pack of "cut" cards on the lower-left, by the Gigantic deck. These are "retired" cards from an actual casino.
  • The Bicycle Tattoo, Zombie, and Steampunk decks in the bottom-left are interesting from a design perspective but I wouldn't play with them when I have the Solitaire.exe and plastic Coca-Cola ones.
  • In the center of the photo you have the drink-recipe cards. You can play solitaire with them, and you can shuffle them to draw a random adult beverage recipe. I'd probably only use them for the former.
  • There's a deck of "vintage style" cards in the upper-left. They look cool, but they have very sharp edges, making them poorly suited for play because I keep poking myself on the corners.
  • And some regular, ordinary, boring cards in the top-right.
