Aside from a small collection of far less than mint-condition coins and about 25 years worth of National Geographics (you know, the one periodical you just can’t will yourself to recycle or throw away :)), I can’t say that I’m a collector.
Well, that’s not entirely true. It came back to me recently that, when I moved into my present apartment 20 years ago this month, I brought with me my vinyls, the four boxes of which I had promptly stacked away in a locker in my building. Along with those vinyls was a Beatles recording-session photo album which came with the original packaging of the Let It Be LP in 1970. I subsequently checked on the Internet to see whether this memorabilium could have any value whatsoever with collectors but couldn’t find any mention of it. I must add that the search really wasn’t that exhaustive: more for the fun of it and out of curiosity than anything else.
With this rather lengthy intro out of the way, I was wondering whether any of the Dopers were (avid) collectors and if so, what their “most prized possession” was.
