Now that collection is simply UNBELIEVABLE  8O  8O  :D

Frank, when you say something is in shrink - It's in shrink!! (first 3 pics)

Whenever you open a box of items, is it like rediscovering them again?

(Al, we'll skip Gencon and just stand at Frank's house for the four days)

I look at these pics and relate them in a different way.  I see 9 woodies and think:  wow, 2 of those would payoff my college loans.  The other seven would help put together a nice down payment for a house.  7 whities would garner me enough money to take a trip to England and visit Al.  Selling off any one shelf would help extend the trip to Italy to talk to aia about his avatar.  So forth and so on....

That's the point Al - He could; I cannot.  

But I absolutely agree to your wonderment of Franks stacks.  It would take me a day to decide what I would want to look at first.

Bingo.  Martin is on my wavelength.  I saw the 9 woodies and thought "New car!!!".  I saw Frank's stuff and thought "Retirement account!".  I've been selling this stuff too long to appreciate just hoarding it!!!

I am hoping to get my stuff all out on display soon ( I am hoping before gencon :? )  Lot of work.  Strato and Frank got me beat significantly I might add :)

I probably have more minis than them though 8)

But I always thought that you owned a dozen warehouses in Chibougamau, just for the minis.

When I die, I'm shipping it all to Al.
C.O.D.
I have about the same volume as Strat, I think, but I don't have a bed of brownies. Hell, I'm not even sure WHAT I have anymore. I'll figure it out as I unpack...

OK, it is now time to laugh and make fun of me....

Please remember my collection is a playing collection - I use these (well, 99%) of them, anyway:

A very excellent, workmanlike collection.  Interesting how much stuff we both have that is the same but also how my game collection kind of crosses yours at a tangent.

I have not noticed a large magazine collection as part of any of the collections I have viewed on the Acaeum.  About half of my collection is magazines of various types...especially Dragon.

Is it that you guys just don't put your Dragon magazines out on shelves or do you not collect it?

Most of the collections seem to be stored spine out like books. Hard to do it with magazines. I always kep mine bagged and sometiems boarded in magazine boxes except for a few framed special issues.
