    Just wondering what kind of stuff you guys collected in your youth? Here's Mine..

    Disney Adventures Magazine

    I think I have about 20 issues of this.

    Pogs
    I would play Pogs with my friends a lot. I had a Wakko slammer, and I won a cool Buzzsaw-shaped slammer from a friend. I had various other Pogs too.

    Rugrats VHS tapes
    I collected these for a few years: Angelica the Divine, Chuckie the Brave, Diapered Duo, Phil and Lil Double Trouble, Bedtime Bash, Grandpa's Favorite Stories, Tales from the Crib, A Rugrats Thanksgiving, Mommy Mania, The Rugrats Movie, Runaway Reptar, Discover America, I Think I Like You, Make Room for Dil.

    Pokemon Stuff

    I didn't really play the card-game with anyone (I was home-schooled when I became a preteen, so I didn't really have much friends at that point.) but I liked the artwork on the cards so I collected them. I collected the Trading Card Game, Cards of the Anime Series, and Action Flipz cards. I also got a Gold Poliwhirl from a Burger King Promotion, that came in a shiny Pokeball, three VHS tapes, plus the movie, and some toys.

    Electronic Gaming Monthly
    Have a lot of these. I started at Issue 100. (I'm missing a few here and there, but I have pretty much every issue from the 100th issue in 1997 up until the Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow issue in 2004)

    Nickelodeon Magazine
    I think I have about 15 Issues of this. Most of them are in good shape, but a few are heavily worn and missing the covers.

    Sonic the Hedgehog comic-books
    (Issues 5-50 + specials)
    Being a huge fan of Sonic, I collected these for years. Constantly renewed my subscription and got most of the specials and mini-series. Up until issue 50.

    For months I was irritated by all the furry drama, annoying original characters like a french skunk named Geoffrey St. John (Ugh he was the worst) and Princess Sally hogging the spotlight, (Seriously, they should've just called the comic "The Adventures of Princess Sally: Featuring Sonic the Hedgehog!" Also, she was a royal -blank-) then there was Robotnik's ridiculous origin, portraying him as a servant to a squirrel King, who would later go on to overthrow his kingdom. Ughhh. Issue 50 was a good jumping-off point, since it featured Robotnik's demise and so I quit the franchise.

    Sonic Adventure came out a year later and made me a fan again with revamped character models, (Classic Sonic is cool, but I love Sonic's modern redesign) an Earth setting, (Finally, Sonic could travel somewhere that wasn't limited to Knothole or Robotropolis) a better Sonic/Tails dynamic, (Tails actually accompanied Sonic on his adventures now!) no love triangles and a more likable love interest for Sonic (Amy Rose) and it didn't feel like a soap opera either.

    I collected comic books of various titles from DC & Marvel, which I still own by the way. Some of the other things I collected were action figures, Hot Wheels & Matchbox cars, bubble gum cards (Mostly from movies, like Star Wars, etc. Never much into baseball cards, because football was and still is my sport, so I had a few of them as well.....nothing of any value, unfortunately.)

    Every time someone mentions collecting something, my mind always goes to Pogs.

    Those were the good days.

    Farthing Wood Magazine (About the first 20 issues)
    Glass Pebbles (I don't know why, I just really loved them when I was little)
    Trolls (Had about 15 of them)
    Puppy in my Pocket (Including the Dream House and the Puppyville Hotel)
    Beanie Babies (Had a lot of these. My Uncle used to bring me back loads when he visited. Gave them all to my friend a year ago cause she displays hers in a cabinet while mine where just hiding in a bag)
    Pokemon cards (Never did get anything to be particularly proud off :funny:, but I had a go)
    SFX Magazine (Probably around 50 issues, with a few missing here and there. Stopped buying it a few years back regularly... it got too expensive :()
    Smallville, Buffy and Angel Magazines (Actually sold the first issue of Smallville Magazine for £30... was pretty chuffed with that!)

    I have a good collection of Hockey cards starting from the late 70's to the early 90's with my crowning card being a Wayne Gretzky rookie card. I also have a few baseball, football, and basketball cards. I also have a bunch of comics, mostly marvel and mostly Spider-Man.

    I collected pins, mostly from different countries. Some of them are from Canada Games, while others are for sports.

    I had a decent collection of coins but someone stole those. Nothing was worth that much but it still irritates me that someone would have stolen a kids coin collection.

    I also have a nice size collection of Disney World Park memorabilia, from our visits to Walt Disney World that we keep in a glass china cabinet.

    Pogs, comics, Pokemon cards and WWF Magazine.

    I still have my comics and Pokemon cards.

    And I keep all my game consoles. I have every console since NES. Don't know if that counts.

    - Marbles (I... don't even remember why. You throw polished stones at other polished stones. Yay. Might as well have been rocks.)
    - Dinosaur toys.
    - Pogs (I had that one slammer that was like 3 inches thick, and would dent the crap out of every pog flipped. Pyrrhic victory, SOBs!).
    - Pokemon cards.
    - Hockey cards.

    I collected pennies when I found them heads up thinking they would actually bring good luck but I was very wrong.:(

    - Terminator action figures.
    - McDonald's Happy Meal toys. Come on, a toy and a meal? A kid's day couldn't get happier.
    - Pokemon cards. They were at the height of my elementary school's gaming fads until I started collecting...
    - Yu-Gi-Oh cards. I stuck with Yu-Gi-Oh longer than Pokemon.
    - Coins. I used to scour middle school in search of old coins. I picked up every coin on the ground that I saw. The campus was old, so I figured there had to be some old currency buried in the dirt or scattered around elsewhere.
    - And of course... rocks. Middle school was boring overall in terms of personal collection.
