    Shoes for starters. I've added two pairs of Nike AF1s and some Vans low black leather w red stripe since this photo was taken.

    I agree with OP about not liking to tear up the new ones. I do skate each pair at least once but usually put on my older but still decent shoes if I plan to skate for a long time.. then I have the borderline shredded ones held together by shoe goo. I don't skate those anymore but still wear them sometimes.



    I also collect sports jerseys, mostly teams from cities where I've lived over the years. NFL, NHL, MLB, Soccer/Football(WC, Premiere League, La Liga), NBA, NCAA (Oklahoma, North Carolina, Texas) I've probably got close to 80 now.

    Got a modest collection of skateboards, and a decent quiver of skis too.

    Girls. Ever seen the movie Taken?
    "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."

    It's a funny thing with music collecting: the more you learn about music the smaller the collection looks. I actually couldn't fit the whole wall of CDs into the image frame. If I count my four crates of records, CD-Rs (which I keep on different shelves), and all my digital albums, I have 4500+.

    Sweet Jeebas. People like you are the hope for everyone that doesn't want music to be digital downloads only.

    I collect video games and video game paraphernalia, mostly NES and SNES related things for now, I'm looking to branch out more in the future.
