How I started to collect

I think I have ran through a typical collecting history. I started to buy Michael's albums and I then discovered J5 and Jacksons items. I used to cut out every little snippet from every magazine I could get. Looking at all those snippets today is very amusing for me as I remember how meticulously I did this. MJ mags, books and pictures soon became the most fascinating items for me. My first album was Dangerous on a cassette tape, then my parents bought me the HIStory CD which was the reason why we bought our first CD player. Then I bought the Moonwalker VHS tape – and we bought our first video player.

I'm happy to see this site growing. It will surely be a great resource for everyone interested in collecting. It's so fascinating to see how many different kind of items exist. It makes the collecting fever come to live again.

Wow Aline, this reminds me something: 'cut out every little snippeet from mag' ... I did the same thing and I could recognize Michael even from a curl or a little detail coming out of a pile of dozens and dozens of magazines at various newsagents here. I always asked: 'Sir, do you have anything on MJ'? and he answered: 'Not today girl'. But my istinct said he was wrong so I just had a look at all the mags on his store and eureka! I screamed aloud: 'Eeh Michael is right there man' ! He didn't even know it since getting an average of 100-150 mags/newspapers/tabloids per day, ne couldn't recall every single mag with MJ on it. He was shocked and since then I saw there was a special link between Michael and his fans, a sort of magnet that only us can understand. The same happened in record and pharapernalia stores, full of thousands of items. There was a magic that attracted me towards a corner more than another and I always found MJ's stuff there. I knew many other fans/collectors had the same wonderful experiences that all started in our childhood.
Thanks for your work Aline!
