    Hello there! Newbie here, who decided to stop lurking and jump in. ;)

    Not a serious collector (yet) but I have started collecting some FedEx items, such as pins/pinbacks, watches, other interesting items, etc.

    Anyone else here have a similar interest or hobby? Maybe an opportunity for exchanging info or swapping a few doubles or duplicates...

    Burr, he's talking about trinkets not wives.

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg Cool! Here are some of my items. Also have some other trinkets. Interested in anything I don't have, and would especially love to own a SuperTracker - the real deal, not just one of the smaller "pens" they gave out as reproductions (have one of those already).

    I have doubles of several of the pins, so could swap those if you're game. Or could do another kind of deal you're comfortable with. Let me know. PM me if you prefer. Thanks!

    Somewhat before my time, but I understand ZapMail was pretty cool back in the day...

    Well, it's pretty impressive for only a few months of collecting. Have you priced out some of your stuff yet to see the value in your collection? Hopefully you were able to score some bargains on some of it!

    No, not really interested in any monetary value ATM, just the subject matter.

    I think most of us have some of the exotic lunch bags (value of around 59 cents), DC10 foam gliders, and various other cheap memorabilia. I still have my metal name tag from the old blue striped "gas station" uniforms that pre-dated the bellhop/epaulet era. My epaulets are still in their original packaging, unworn due to extreme shame.

    I have a nice leather jacket for RTD safe driving. Maybe we can cut a deal?

    It wasn't - trust me on this.

    I used to have a whole bin full of Federal Express crap dating back to the Cro Magnon era, but donated it all to the landfill several years ago, shortly after the last drop of purple blood quietly seeped from my depleted body.

    That's a shame... any chance you can go dig them up?

    Some of those buttons are kinda neat... too bad that sort of thing doesn't happen anymore

    I only want to collect a pension check, and direct deposited so I don't have to look at it.

    People would complain about it if it did.

    Unfortunately for Kokopelli the poor man has clearly been to the Fedex Mind Control and Reeducation Academy a few too many times.
