So over the years I've collected a lot of junk. Most of it just amassed because I never trade stuff away. Some things because I was actively trying to collect them.
What stuff do you guys look for, or just have oodles of things you've gathered?
List what things you guys have and how much (or approximately). If you want to explicitly list what you've got go for it, but put it in a spoiler thing.
Band shirts ~ 62 (with pictures of shirts I could find)
(ugh... I'll try to get back to addition pics later)
SNES games - 26
N64 games - 37
Here's a picture of most of the games, plus some pc games.
CDs - over 200
No, I won't list those. Here's a picture instead.
If anyone knows where I can upload higher res pics, you'll be able to read more of the labels.
I also have thousands of MTG cards, but that isn't a terribly hard task to accomplish. My collection however does fill more than two of these boxes.

300+ CD's, about 20 airshow/fly-in T-shirts (the oldest is from '98), those Hess trucks they sell every XMas going back to '93, five yo-yos (they were big when I was in high school), about 50 SNES, PS1 and PS2 games altogether, most of the Calvin & Hobbes collections (think I'm only missing 2 or 3 of them and my brother has those).

I have a lot of dice......Like a LOT of dice.
I haven't shot dice in like 15 years.

As I mentioned before, I rarely get rid of the stuff I have. So none of the SNES games are for sale (sorry). I find them by stopping buy any local store periodically tha would sell them. I doubt I would sell them for any less that you'd buy them from there. Most of the games haven't changed in price since I bought them either. Except earthbound, a version where saves still work (like mine) goes for over $100 on ebay. Making it my most valuable video game.

I've got a figure and model collection I should really get around to dusting.

Well, I went ahead and looked through all the ticketstubs I had saved (I may have lost even more). I'm only listing bands on the stub.

Totally bumping this, because someone teased me yesterday about some of the wine corks I've kept for no good reason. There are 51 corks in that photo. I have another 2 overflowing containers (same size as the one in the photo) of corks.
Last September, I got rid of all the corks I'd collected—I mean several shoeboxes full—and tried to break my habit of collecting them. Didn't work.
The person who teased me said it's crazy to collect that many wine corks in an 11-month time span. I just laughed that off, but then I thought about it: 51 corks per container x 3 containers = 153 corks, /11 months = 13.9 bottles of wine a month. That's... huh.
But see, I cook with wine too, and I never cook with a wine I wouldn't drink. Plus, I sometimes take bottles of wine to other people's dinner parties and to BYOB restaurants, and I share them with people who come to my place, so see, it's not just me drinking all that wine. So there!
Maybe I'll take photos of other collections later today. Most of my teapots are down in my storage bin, so I'd have to unpack 'em for photos. Hmm.
That's a cool collection. Much more endearing than rocks.

Bumped because I'm curious to know what you guys have.
Books - I don't trade or donate any so my collection has spread to three bookcases. I still have my fear street and nancy drew books.
Shot glasses or mugs from every state I visit.
Glass lamps - Most of them are colored glass so they're more pretty than they are practical.
Metal lunch boxes - Nightmare Before Christmas, Naruto, Noir, Betty Boop, and Wall-E so far. Someday I will have the Star Wars and Sailor Moon ones.
