I saw an interesting thread on the RSOF of people talking about collections of items they owned and it got me wondering; does anyone on RSC collect things? What items do you collect and why? Where do you get them from? How long have you been collecting for and how many items have you accumulated?

Personally I collect alot of resources from when I do skilling, though I think most people that collect items buy them from the ge over long periods of time. Mainly I collected yew logs and now I have moved on to magic logs ^_^ I guess I collect logs because I end up Woodcutting often when I don't want to pay attention to Runescape, having finished all my other afkable skills. Collecting logs makes the time I spend afking feel more meaningful, instead of it feeling like time wasted that I could have spent training; it's a nice side goal.

Also I was wondering whether anyone keeps items that they consider special? Even if the item isn't really valuable or useful.

I have had a single tiger shark in my bank for awhile now. I got from playing Fishing Trawler with my friend while he was teaching me how to play the minigame. It was pretty disastrous given how few people were playing the minigame :-P I guess I keep the single shark I got as a reminder!

I like to collect my herbs and fruits from farming in my bank. I've been collecting these items for over half a year :-), including other things like buckets of sand and seaweed. And I would sell these one day.
Some quest items are in a different collection, sometimes destroying them for more space.

I have a couple items that some friends have given me other time, most have quit and I have kept the items in there memory, even though most are worthless.

Add me "You Dun Goof" if you play deadman mode, i'm sure friends will be a valuable asset.

My motto is the less room in my bank, the better. I use to collect some items, but nowadays, it's usually things that are extremely useful that allows placeholders. Besides common drops from bosses like Runes, Raw Material drops and Gems, I don't collect much.

Got a collection of Vanguard helmets going right now. Over 300 atm.

Got a Xp book from Dom Tower which I somehow banked. Had two but took one out accidentally.

Still got one monkey barrel from SOF. Probably never going to use it. Did a few times in beta servers for fun :-)

I collect baskets. Currently have 1m of them. Would have 4m but there was a good offer. :/ I get a few of my good friends to buy me them. So I get them fairly fast.

I don't collect anything, but I tend to keep lots of random stuff that I somehow get until I have no bank space left.

I used the Ectofuntus a lot training prayer from lv. 52 to 65, so I have a crapload of Ecto-tokens.

I don't collect anything, If its not useful it has no place in my bank try to keep the number of items in my bank as low as possible.

I used to have around 3 million shrimps. No real reason, just a collection I had for a few months. Someone made me an offer I couldn't really say no to so I parted ways with it.

Only gems, never cut any I have recieved via mining or otherwise. Not a massive collection, but nearing 1k sapphires, and somehow have more rubies than emeralds

Not enough bank space and there's nothing that really tickles my fancy. :-(
Maybe someday, after using runecoins from premium membership on bank boosters.

Although I have saved up my caskets from PvM.. I have 2 in total.. I don't really like PvM that much.

I'm pretty clean with my bank. The only token I keep is the Thanksgiving raw meat from 2008. It was dropped it by a Jagex Moderator in 2012 so it's pretty cool.

Every older member here should remember my burnt collection. That's gone now and I don't collect anything anymore. Now everyone and their grandmother has one.

Kinda like Manga, I have a burnt Rocktail and burnt Shark collection.  I've been, well, not necessarily actively growing it, but I do buy them from people whenever I see them.  Most of my other collections are just things friends gift to me on my birthday or things I keep for nostalgia.  For instance, Jay's Ogre Boot collection or my pre-EoC 200m Range Chin collection.

Looking forward to doing this when I start 99 Slayer :-) Must be a good motivator.
