Anyone here collect guitar picks?

I've been collecting (artists picks) for about 15 years off an on. I had a huge collection at one point and traded it to a fellow in Japan. I've been back at it recently and I was wondering if anyone else here did.

Re: Anyone here collect guitar picks?

I´m not exactly a guitar-picks collector, but I try to catch everything that fly around our heads at concerts. This is my little collection:

-From Steve Vai last tour, I have a pick of each member of the band (except from Steve, but he gave us one at the Evo Premium), and a drumstick (signed by Jeremy). I catched the accoustic setlist too.
-From Queen, the full setlist, and a friend catched the coin-pick.
-From Dream Theater, a Petrucci´s pick.
-From Saratoga, a pick from Jero and a fully signed setlist.
-From Avalanch, picks of both guitar players and two fully signed setlist.
-From Los Mojinos, two picks from Chicha and one from Vidalito.
-From Symphony X, two setlist and two bottles of water!

See them by yourself. And I forgot to include a D-string from Evo that Thomas gave me!



Here it is all my Evo Premium stuff:

I have several pick collections. One by the fridge, where I empty out my pockets when coming back in the house. One on the washing machine, where I empty pockets before doing laundry, one under the sofa...

Re: Anyone here collect guitar picks?

I was really into catching picks at shows for awhile, but lost interest as I got older.

I've got a nice little collection though. It's mostly the memories of the shows that I enjoy most

-6 or 7 Vai picks from different shows. Mostly from the "Fire Garden" and "Ultra Zone" tours, as well as one or two from G3 shows.
-8 Brian Setzer picks, all caught at different shows over the years
-A pair of Tenacious D picks (JB & KG)
-(1) Eric Clapton pick
-(1) Bonnie Raitt pick
-(1) Ace Frehley pick, (1) Snake Sabo pick & (1) Ted Nugent pick all from the same KISS show (Kiss, Skid Row & Nugent on the same bill)
-(1) Darius Rucker pick (yes...Hootie & the Blowfish. I'm not proud.)
-(1) Zakk Wylde pick

There are a couple of other odds n' ends picks that I can't recall.

I think the coolest thing I've snagged is Steve Vai's signed lyrics to Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog" from the Anaheim show that closed either the "Fire Garden" or "Ultra Zone" tour...can't remember which one it was, but it was 2001 I think.
