Hey Ags,

I am an avid collector of A&M trading cards, any sport, any player. I also collect other cards, Texans, Astros, Rockets, Star Wars and others. Plus I collect Funko Pops and beer coasters. If there is enough interest, I would like to propose to TexAgs about creating a forum devoted to collecting and trading cards and other memorabilia, especially A&M stuff. I know this is the classified forum but this new forum would not be about just selling your memorabilia. This forum would be primarily devoted to the enjoyment and satisfaction of collecting and trading things you like. You may have the option to buy, sell or trade something but it would be strictly related to cards and other memorabilia.

Let me know what you guys think of this idea.

Since I'm a collector(my boys say hoarder), I'd be all for it. Medals & pins.

I like to collect ticket stubs, medals and postcards. I wrote to Texags about this very subject a month ago or so. It would be awesome to see all the pictures. Together Cushing library would love us in my opinion as a secondary resource to them of course.

This sounds great. I have a collection of old He-Man figures and the re-release figures from the early 2000's. My wife actually got me the new Castle Greyskull as a wedding gift. I peruse Ebay from time to time to see what else is out there.

I don't know if you're working but the estate sales are full of toys and a lot are still in original packing.

I've got a G.I. Joe footlocker full of clothes and uniforms for the old style giant action figures from the 70's with the Kung-Fu Grip.

Not in original packaging.

Also have a fair number of Lamp Berger collectible lamps that are in boxes. They came from a family member that had a retail store where they sold a ton of these things. They had some of the special models they collected for themselves.

Maybe I should just list those here.

Just went over to Etsy to see what you're talking about. Very nice! I have not seen any of these, but I wasn't looking for them, pretty cool.

Yeah, I'll probably do a thread for them. Need to take them out and do some photos.

The one we have for home use is functional and it looks nice but it's not fancy. It just does it's job of freshening up there room without being febreeze or scentsy or a candle. They work really well.

These others in the boxes are like art pieces almost.

I would check in on a regular basis. Selling off quite a lot of extra stuff on eBay....might post here first if there was a dedicated forum vs just the classifieds

I recently discovered my 25 year old Pokemon card binder, and have bought some modern because of it.

Selling on here would save a ton of eBay fees.

I'm a collector (hoarder) as well. I'm terrible at selling. I have a box full of stuff I need to put on eBay but don't want to deal with the hassle.

I'm in.

I'd be down for this for sure.

I have a ton of GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, sports cards, starting lineup I may be interested in discussing and/or selling. Also some vintage neon beer signs and other bar signs/mirrors, etc.

What sales?



doubt it's anything I'd want.... I'm very snobby in my collecting.. lol

I dont do vintage... i do ANTIQUE..

Has to be 1920 or before.. cannot involve electricity, batteries, or plastic...

no polaroids or 1980 film cameras.. most of my cameras are made of wood..

You are right, I haven't seen any of the older equipment. The great thing is there might be some of this stuff in any of these sales. Estatesales.net.

I'll look when I get home. I know for sure a plain Miller Lite "Lite" one and a Miller High Life "Made the American Way". Also an Olympia one that looks like a barrel head (it's plastic). That one is not Neon, but it uses a spinning disk behind some glass to look like a river is flowing. It's pretty cool.

I basically save my money and go pick out at Roundtop. I see a few things for my collection every now and then... Right now I've got a bug to concentrate on early chemical bottles ... VERY hard to find.

I sometimes follow auctions.. but they're either in Germany or the UK.. Antique camera stuff is so rare in the US as to be almost unheard of... so I have to get the good stuff from Europe or have it brought to me via Roundtop. I gave up antiquing in random antique stores years ago cause they NEVER have anyhting...

And I run enough antique camera Facebook pages that the members often trade amongst ourselves...

I was under the assumption that Texags required an advertiser if a forum was to be started. I wanted to start a wedding one decades ago but if I remember correctly I was told I would have to pay to be an advertiser to start a forum.. I could be old and forgetful and am not remembering it correctly, but its what I remember...

I'm a sign/advertising collector. My collection has grown pretty decently over the years. Have what I'd consider a healthy pile at this point. Always interested in in finding more and just seeing what others have.

Not a collector, but I did run across this today and it made me curious….

Is this a sports collectible or just a poster?


Fuzzy Dunlop

In my opinion, it is a sports collectible. Sports collectibles fun the gamut from pins and pennants to bobbleheds, sports cards, jerseys, etc.

Getting an Acie Law autograph on it, and getting it authenticated would make it more of a collectible in my opinion.

Depends on casual collector or serious.

I would love it. Others probably don't care
