Collecting addictions in general have a lot in common with drug addiction.
Collectors are perceived as creeps by most people, craven hoarders, narrowly obsessed little men.
I would occasionally buy 33 1/3 LP reissues of old jazz.
Nowadays I will acquire CDs of reissues if the original 78 records themselves are just impossible to find and possess, but I’d certainly rather have the 78.
I started with comic books, trading cards, matchboxes, bottle caps.
I spent a large part of my childhood and adolescence hunting for old comic books.
I also used to collect, for a while, old toys until that, too, got too pricey for my bank account.There’s something contemptible about collecting in the eyes of non collectors.I became an obsessive collector very suddenly around the time I turned nine years old in the late summer of 1952. Suddenly I wanted to save things, to have the series; to line them up, stack them up, accumulate them.At age 16 I suddenly became a collector of old 78 records.I already had a great attraction to old music that I heard in old movies from the early 1930s, old animated cartoons and the Hal Roach comedies.
