Types of Collectibles - Mine Are Movie Collectibles, What Are Yours?

My last blog post I asked if you had any stray movie collectibles seeping over into what you more passionately collect. This time around I'll try to spin that from reverse. In other words, here are some of the types of movie collectibles I buy and sell ... do you collect any of these items in a more general, or even a more specific but different, way?

Trading and Tobacco Cards - Probably over half of my stock consists of trading and tobacco cards from film star sets issued between the 1910s and 1950s. Do you collect any cards? Non-sports or sports? Baseball cards are actually where I got my start in both collecting and dealing.

Postcards - I hunt the stock of online sellers who are more general postcard dealers and try to cherry-pick the best movie stars from their stock. But there are collectors of all different sorts in this hobby as well. Once again there are sports collectors, also collectors of other famous people. Scenes of specific towns and cities are often collected.

Photographs - I dabble with vintage movie stills, wire photos, promotional photos, press photos and more. I've even been selling negatives recently. Back when I dealt baseball cards one of my first purchases that showed me there was more available than just card was a collection of hundreds of baseball wire photos (long since sold). You can collect photography by subject, scene, or photographer. Another area where your collecting is only as limited as your imagination ... or as wide as it.

Magazines - Beyond movie magazines I'm also a dealer of general magazine back issues. The movie collectors generally stick to titles such as Photoplay and Pictureplay. But the general magazine collector may have issues of popularly collected publications such as Life, Saturday Evening Post, Time, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, etc.

Those are just a few of the main areas I deal with specifically in the world of movie collectibles. Do you collect similar items from another genre?

Thanks for reading, Cliff

Actually, it'd probably just be easier for me to include the Movie Group here. Thanks again, Cliff

Thanks for the comments, sandysfancy. Actually I did start one, you'll see it down the sidebar a bit.

Thanks for posting. That Priscilla Lane Auto-Lite Sparkplugs Premium is right along the lines of items I mostly handle. I'd found one a couple of months ago in an old box of stock I'd forgotten and sold it for $10 on eBay.
