Over the years I have collected some interesting things. The things that I have collected are the things that I have enjoy collecting. This article will show some of the things that I have collected over the years. These are my personal hobby that I enjoy doing over the years.

Sports Trading Cards

The first thing that I collect are sports trading cards. I been collecting cards since 1978. My collection mainly from sports teams from Milwaukee, like the Brewers, Bucks and Milwaukee Admirals (minor league hockey). In my collection, I own about 4,000 to 5,000 cards mostly baseball and mainly team sets. The most treasured card which is the Robin Yount rookie card.

When I started my collection back in 1978 I used to buy packs of baseball cards and at times traded with some of my friends. I tried to collect complete sets of that year's cards, but I soon found out that it was hard to do and to concentrate on collecting my favorite local teams in each sport. As the years went by I went to sports cards shows where I have traded some of my cards that I didn't need for the ones that I did need to add to my collection. I have also went to card shops to obtain team sets that I have needed.

Lapel Pins

The second thing that I enjoy collecting are lapel pins. I have started collected lapel pins when I used to work for McDonald's back in the late 1980's early 1990's. Some of the things that I have in this collection are sports, McDonald's, Wisconsin State Fair pins, service pins from work. Some of the pins that I received was from work and from some people who saw me wearing my pins and asked me if I collect them and I told them that yes I do collect them, so the next time that I saw them they gave me a pin or two. There are some of them like half of my Wisconsin State Fair pins that I have actually bought out of my own money.

Peanuts

The third thing that collect is anything that is related to Peanuts. Ever since I was a kid I enjoyed watching the holiday specials that was on television. But some of the things that I have in this collection are books, glassware, stuff Snoopy toys, DVDs to name a few.
