One day, just you wait and see!

One day, just you wait and see!
Fellow Uniblogger and collector Glen Robert Huff has a fantastic collection of darts memorabilia which has taken him 23 years to a mass to what he has now and what a collection it is, just read his Blog! So Glen, it seems that the gauntlet has been waved in my face so to speak and I am going to try and have as much if not more than yourself about this great game we know. Although somehow I don’t think I can collect what you have in 23 years!

I have a few bits and pieces that I have had for quite some time but didn’t really think much of collecting darts/flights etc until mid 2006. As the saying goes “some hobbies are costlier than a game” This I found to be oh so true. Especially when you pay for postage for some remotely obscure set of darts that may have no real significance or you make a bid on EBay and it costs more than the item is worth (or the bother for that matter) still it is a pleasure to see the item when I get it and know that it somehow has been part of darts history in some small way.

So with the costs involved I am sneaking on my collection from now on and picking my time to pounce! The dart collecting has taken a back seat for the moment, the dart pins and patch badges are still flowing in from all over the world BUT…. I had an idea when seeing a set of Jim Pike flights on EBay that have to be gummed (glued for those who don’t know) together. Why not start a flight collection? NOOOOOOO I hear you say! NOT the flights we use now?

Yes and no I say! I am devising a collection of current and past flights that will actually bring out some history of the game. So I have started to collect players (past and present) with ALL Unicorns players the first on the list, also flights from various countries and Associations around the world, they will make a good talking point and of course I can say for instance with one set I have: “this set Russell Stewart played with to beat John Lowe in the World Cup V in Australia”

Now, back to my collection of all. Unlike Glen I have not had the pleasure of meeting all players and getting darts from them *A LA Phil Taylor* and many other legends Glen was lucky to meet like the late great Barry Tromlow & the Crafty Cockney Eric Bristow! However I will give a run down of what I have so far
