- Wikipedia: The hobby of collecting includes seeking, locating, acquiring, organizing, cataloging, displaying, storing, and maintaining whatever items are of interest to the individual collector. Collections can differ in a wide variety of respects, most obviously in the nature and scope of the objects contained, but also in purpose, presentation, and so forth. The scope of collecting is unlimited, as expressed in the old adage, "If something exists, somebody somewhere collects them."
