I'm coming up with 48 for completeness.  Quantity would require me actually digging around, so that ain't gonna happen right now.  :wink:

I can count mine on the thumbs of one hand (and it's not even a 'rare' rare)!.
FWIW hasn't Coug got 2 of everything and I believe that Kewlmarine over at DF is on record saying much the same thing ! (don't quote me though cos I couldn't find the thread to link (Though if I remember correctly Bclarkie has been trying to call him on his claims) (And as it goes I wouldn't be at all surprised if Coug did have an awful lot - I know several have appeared on his off ebay sales lists over the past couple of years - If I'm not mistaken his price on an ST1 over 6 months ago was £3000) :D


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

^^^ :)

KewlMarine's scarcely believable rants are one of the very few reasons I still bother to scan the DF forums. He reminds me of a guy I used to work with that we called "One-Up" — no matter what you did or said, he would feel compelled to one-up you.

BC's asked him like 15 times for a photo — any photo. TTBOMK, no dice.

I'm sure the baby grand is used for background music during gaming or you can close it up and use it as a gaming table - great way to multipurpose the room.

I did not need to see that. Now, I want to stop collecting. Nine woodgrains? Nine!

Must be nice.

Great collection, to be sure, but I can't help but feel "why bother?"

I am reminded greatly of the episode of MASH with the bacteria incubators, "But if I let you have one then I wouldn't have 4." or something like that.

I noticed that I put up some pics a couple of years ago but they dont exist anymore, so I figured I would put up some pics of what my "office" looks like now:

And here are a few closeups of my favorite items:

Now that I have had time to think about it, if I didnt collect other things like comics and video games maybe I could have three or four woodgrains, a few tournament modules, and some other ridiculously rare stuff.  

Hmmm...anyone want to buy a comic book collection?  :wink:

I liked the Green Lantern. Was that a Golden Age green lantern figure on the top of the one shelf?

Well, the original post asked how many items I had in my collection - if I discount a couple due to not really being complete or decent, I have roughly 1000. Not that many, but I'm quite shocked, still, seeing as I've only been going at it with any real gusto for about 2 years, and in that time, my collection has increased around 40%. So, maybe I'll get to the point where everyone else is... but I don't think it'll happen any time soon.

Didn't see an Alan one but saw both Hal and Kyle. Keep an eye on Ebay and you'll see original art from Mart Nodell. I picked up a few a couple years ago before he passed on.

No more than 500 items - probably less. Sadly I don't have the room for a BIG collection.  :D

In my heyday as a reseller, 60,000+ rpg items, but I've never been much of a collector except for work on campaigns I've done myself. Probably 35 magazine boxes of papers and campaign notebooks dealing with RPGs.

thank you mark (mars) for posting the pictures for me. my wife and i bought the house, had the bookshelves built, and then it took me over a year to organize eveything and get the singles up on the shelves in order. then we had a son (whose first gencon is coming up in 2 months), so i`m finally now getting the pics posted. i do view it as a museum to honor the authors and publishers of the games that we all love so much. i never intended to have 9 brown boxes: the first is in true nm shape (it looks brand new), the 2nd was terry kuntzs` brown box, the 3rd rob kuntz, 4th  tim kasks`, 5th was a 2nd pr, 6th was a 3rd pr, 7th was tim`s other box... the items are alphabetical by company and then in numerical order. the boxed items are in the first two bays. on the top shelf of the second bay and going thru the 8th are the digest sized items. starting with bay 3, 2nd shelf down the modules and books begin and continue thru the 7th bay, 5th shelf down. magazines start there and run thru the 8th bay. i thought  if one was looking if an item was there they maybe could search & find it...

You were never in competition, seleran.  Isn't your collection really about the things that you yourself value?

It is great to see that stratochamp has such a cool setup, but all of us are only temporarily managing these collections.  If 2008 has taught us anything, it should be that.

It's nice to see such a nice collection so well taken care of.
