Over 9000 Gold Records to date and counting. You can check out my spoils on the Facebook page RIAA AWARD COLLECTORS.

    I have a collection of over 5000 NFL Football games on DVD going back to the early 1970's...many complete with all commercials. I had Hundreds of games from the 1970's/Early 80's (On VHS) smuggled out of the CBS Vaults in New Jersey.

    I am an avid Fantasy Football Player. Need to fill a spot in a competitive online draft league? Send me a PM with details.

    I have lots of Stereo Equipment that I have never used or taken out of the sealed boxes. Its neater that way.

    I collect Homeless (Feral) Cats and try to domesticate them.

    In the past....I owned a Baseball Card/Comic Book store in the 1980's located on the infamous Route 9 (Born To Run) in New Jersey.
    Wow. Lots of interesting stuff there. No wonder you’re an audio enthusiast.

    I'm also into cycling (100+ mi/wk), table tennis (intermediate player), and pickleball (novice). I also spend a lot of time studying personal finance/investing. High-end audio is my meditation.

    Re: What "Other" Hobbies Do You Enjoy?

    Boating and fishing over the last few years but I just sold my boat since everything is catch and release here in Tampa Bay due to the red tide problems as of late.
    I travel a lots with the wife and have done lots of nature photography. 2 trips to Africa and 2 trips to Antarctica are the highlights. I even owned my own camera store and photo lab back in Marietta Ga. for over 15 years.
    I have done the saltwater fish tank and RC airplanes bit. Also dabbled with golf and tennis till I ripped both rotators. I love hobbies......never bored.
    Music and guitar playing were my first hobbies and most consuming and enduring.
    Used to love playing chess and collecting coins and stamps as a youngster......yep I was on the nerdy side.
