It has been said that if anything exists, there is someone somewhere who probably collects it! This discussion will cover the history and psychology of collecting. And, within each area of collecting there is always an ultimate object which in effect becomes the “holy grail” for that collecting genera. Some specific areas of collecting to be discussed include: books, stamps, coins, sports cards, comics, and ephemera. Attendees are encouraged to bring an example of their collecting passion for display and discussion.
