    I still have Alf trading cards, some Cyndi Lauper trading cards, some rare DD trading cards....a couple of old Scholastic TV show books from the 80s that are still in fair conditions. Rare LP of Tim Curry's I Do The Rock. A couple of Elvis LPs. What do you have in your collection still at the moment or use to have?

    When I was a child I started collecting a piece of currency and a coin when I visited a foreign country, I still have all of them and I'm still collecting.
