Around 20-ish, just from Atlanta. I have more floating around but I don't know where they went...

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

I counted 87 from Atlanta alone... I was hoping to get one from every team... but as the team photographer I have to spend more time camera clicking less time button picking.

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

My ultimate goal is to fill up this large section of pink insultation that runs along the top of our site with buttons. We have a hundred or so from as far back as 99 and I got alot more at the championships this year.

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

Pretty much every button from every team at every regional I've been to (with the exception of this year's Championship):



There may be some other knick-knacks mixed in there, but I don't have the guts (or the tetanus shots) to dig down and find out.

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

You are an inspiration! I'm keeping all my buttons in a box one of my guitars came in until I can find a better display for them... I don't want to strech out my shirts.

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

I have no idea how big my collection is. I've been collecting buttons since around '99. At the Championship this year, I had to remove quite a stack from my shirt every night... I keep them all (along with most other team giveaways) in a shoe box in my desk, and that is almost out of space. Ouch.

Talking Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

*Prepare for a moment of intense bragging.*

Ooh! I am a sucker for knick-knacks! I have two large banners filled top to bottom with buttons, and those don't even include the extra buttons, which I have stashed away somewhere...

I have about a total of 100-200 buttons!

For the other garments, necklaces, etc. I have a Christmas tree (that's right, a CHRISTMAS TREE) where I hang all the different key chains, beads, necklaces, and other giveaways that don't have a place on the button banners! I will try to get a picture up soon!

*end moment of intense bragging*

I don't have buttons from every team that participates in FIRST, although one of my goals it to get every teams button or giveaway. It is an impossible feat for a student like me. Others have probably managed (Steve W. ) to get the whole stash of giveaways, plus more! I guarantee that there is a bigger collection out there than mine.

Everyone's collection is fantastic from what I see! But ahecht, why do you keep an official silver FIRST medal amongst your collection of sharp, pokey buttons ? It's an achievement of yours! Cherish it!

Of course there are bigger collections! Can you imagine how many Dean or Woodie must have?! Even they couldn't possibly have one from every team, And with more and more teams every year... !

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

so this is what i do with my buttons. We have one avid button collector on our team whos determined to have every single button a first team ever made, so if we get any, he gets to go through them (or atleast mine) first. Then what happens is I save any funny ones (like 25's feel the power) and throw the rest to my brother who at the age of 7 already has over 170 buttons.

Re: How Big is Your Button collection?

This being my first year, my whole button collection comes from only 2 regionals and nationals. I only got out my nationals bag and counted about 162 buttons. Now if you take into account duplicates I probably have about 140-150 unique buttons from the championship. I didn't get near as many buttons at regionals but I am probly pushing about 200.
