Deep Thoughts- The Collector Ego

Part of it is obviously envy, knowing that I'll never be able to afford to participate in assembling a true investment qaulity collection, but I've decided that the PSA Set Registry is the collecting equivalent of the "my dick is bigger than your dick" contest.

To be fair, there is obviously a great deal of pride involved in assembling a set collection worthy of contending for a top spot in the set's respective registry. However, doesn't it really just say, "I have more money then you do."? (insert childish lip fluttering noise here)

A description of the origin and reasoning of the registry states:
"The FREE, interactive PSA Set RegistrySM program has revolutionized card and ticket collecting around the world. Established in 2001, the PSA Set Registry now hosts nearly 45,000 sets. In addition to the major sport categories, it offers categories in miscellanous sports and non-sports.
Home to the world’s finest card and ticket collections, the PSA Set Registry gives collectors the opportunity to safely show off their PSA-graded items in a secure online environment, and compare their collections to some of the greatest ever assembled. You can start with just one card or ticket and build your set over time, or add an entire collection. You can post images of your items, view those of other collectors in your area of interest, and go from there!"

More details and mouthwatering collections here.

If I had the money, I can't say that I wouldn't but I can think of a few hundred other things I would like better. Some of those collections should be in a museum.
