I'm still an active gamer so any product from any edition is potential source material for me.   The nostalgia factor is also very high with me.

Which is one reason why I have picked up a number of 3.0 and 3.5 publications now...rather than late.

I'm just collecting now; too busy with work & family, I'm afraid.

I was an active player (mostly DM) for many years, years ago.

It's a nice feeling to have all the old material in the house and every now and again I'll pick one up and have a look.  

Odd really.

It's mostly nostalgia now, although I love auctions, especially in-person ones. Finding a great deal is always fun too.
