I collect vintage headphones from the 60s 7os 80s 90s 00s 10s .. and new too
My movie ticket stubs. I know others collect this, but it's probably the most unique thing I collect. I have every stub from the past 12 years.
I use the save coffee cans from the vending machine coffee here in Japan, but having moved appartments a few times now bringing empty coffee cans was a bit much.
I have a weird obsession with pens. Not expensive pens, but like a Pilot Vball or whatever. I have a Darth Maul pen that writes way smoother than it has any right (write) to. My current favorite is a 4 in 1 pen made by a Japanese company called Zebra. I don't really write much so it is an odd habit.
@slaegar: i could see getting into that. Neat.
Not sure if I’d call it a collection, but I used to buy up used copies of books I liked and kept them around to give to reader friends who hadn’t read the writers. Out of college, that became pretty pointless and a waste of apace, but it was fun.
@samaroo22: I just started , trying to learn it. Can’t do a damn thing, except for basic fanning, cuts, and riffle shuffle.
Yeah originally I was trying to learn card magic, but all seems to require some sort of flourish, so I decided to tackle cardistry first. Got my first deck, which is the Memento Mori from Chris Ramsey.
I collect keys: ornate chest keys, music box keys, replicas of movie keys (Beauty and the Beast, The Secret Garden, Return to Oz), mini keyblades, etc.
I have two binders of completed sets of Pokémon cards. I'm proudest of my Generations + Radiant Collection, all reverse holo foils (less valuable but I prefer the look).
My favourite deck is probably this one created by Ondrej Psenicka. They have an ingenious marking system in their design; you have to unlock the codex, so to speak, with the password that comes in the box. It was way cool.
Another playing card collector here. I do cardistry (poorly) and just started to dabble in card magic. Do you other collects have the same weird fear I do in using decks that you'll wear out your only pack of a specific deck and it's for some reason not available anymore, so you buy far too many packs when you buy new cards? I usually buy 1/2 brick minimum so I have buffer room to mess around without worry of wearing out cards i'll not be able to replace, but then I often end up with just 5 or 6 decks that stay in a neat stack on display and never really touch them except showing them off to people who don't care because i'm still using the same few decks I have been for months. The 2018 Virts I ended up buying a brick and a half, and I still have the only 2017 Virts deck that I opened last year still in near pristine condition.
