Collectors are strange. I'm sorry but people pay exorbitant amounts of money for the strangest things.

Are any of you guilty of that? Any crazy purchases you have made or sold?

Yesterday I drove my brother to the post office so that he could ship an item he just sold on eBay for $150.
Said item was a used video game case with instructions. But no game. For one hundred and fifty dollars.

I used to collect old radios but I didn't pay a lot for them. Some of them had been in my family for years.

Interesting, why radios?

I love old telephones and type writers. If I had disposable income, I'd collect them

I think I'd be happy with one, I wouldn't want a whole collection. Typewriters are awesome though!

I have spent a lot of money on ball python morphs before. The most was $1500 for a piebald. But some sell for tens of thousands.
