Default Collecting Discs

About 2-3 years ago I got into collecting discs. But, I mostly collect newer discs like the 15 year anniversary xxl destroyers for example. Mostly because of my incompetence in the disc collecting world, I don't have much of a collection.

I am wondering what the DGCR world thinks what may be some discs worthy of collection that are currently being manufactured. I am also open to ideas, tips, and suggestions when it comes to collecting discs (anything suggestions, really). Not quite sure what the real collectors look for, but I am interested.

Anyways, maybe there is a thread for this that I have overlooked. But I thought this sort of this is interesting.

Thanks for any and all suggestions!

That's a good question that I don't have an answer for. Are the McBeth Discraft discs collectable?

They're all collectable. Resale value is another story...

Maybe, but the market is super flooded. The McProtos maybe.

I guess I’m more of a disc hoarder than collector. I keep ones I like or think I may throw again one day. It’s sometimes hard to say what will be popular in 5-10’years.

Cool stamps might be a place to start if you’re just looking to display. Huk lab, misprints, tournament stamps etc. if you’re looking to collect rare stuff, that gets more expensive as it is generally plastic that is no longer in production. First runs, pre flight numbers, patent numbers, tour series of various molds are popular among collectors.

There's no way to say which current releases will be collectibles in the future. I know a few people who bought a lot of proto Grooves when they came out, they still have them.

People were buying the proto Prodigy stuff by the stack when it came out; people were reselling those discs for big money right at that time. Long run they didn't hold their value. The CE Rocs sat around for a long time; people thought they were too expensive. Anybody who guessed that those would be good in the long run made some decent money back on that investment. The fact that there are proto Prodigy discs in my basement and there are not any 2001 USDGC Rocs in my basement tells you all you need to know about my ability to pick a collectable disc.

I have a small stack of proto Prodigy. Looking back I made a couple dumb ass trades to get them.

I have a couple discs that I have collected since I started that I won't be throwing. A couple different Star Wars discs from Discraft and then a couple of the 5x McBeth Buzzz. I would like to get a couple of the brainwave dyed discs just because they look cool. With that being said, all my future purchases will be for discs that I'm going to throw.
