    Tips for a new iPod collector??

    So I've always been a Mac nerd and I am now starting my iPod collection. I thought therer would be so much more out there like websites just for collectors but didn't see any yet. I only have 4 rt now and am mad at myself as I have given away or sold some of my older ones. But now I am getting serious. I want to start w one of each kind and then grow from there. I started bidding on eBay but how do u guys suggest getting them.

    Basically any tips for a new iPod collector. Thanks ahead of time.

    Constantly try eBay. I'm sure they have every model of every iPod on there. Check Craigslist, too. Post a "want to buy old iPods" post in Craigslist. If you get enough posts here, there's a "Marketplace" where users buy and sell things all the time.

    Good luck!

    Whoever was asking about buying iPods I'd recommend Gamestops online store, I bought my 1st gen Shuffle(1 gig) and my 1st gen Mini (4 gigs) for less than $30.00.

    I think it got under because everyone started to post their complain about the iPod replacements. Well here are my pictures of my collections.

    Too many iPod to list. Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions. I've been collecting iPods, iPhones, and iPads for over 7 years now.

    :D

    Anyone with a 1st gen nano want to trade me for a 6th gen?

    [​IMG]

    I only actually collect non-touch screen iPods. I had to draw the line somewhere and I figure they'll all be touch-based eventually so I'll be able to call the collection complete.

    Unfortunately that pristine white nano pictured on the right is gone; I sent it to Apple last month because I didn't want it to burst into flames. Now I'm really bummed because Apple is replacing it with a 6th gen! Most people would't mind that but I'm sure present company understands my irritation.

    If you know anyone with a spare pristine white first gen nano (any capacity) please tell me! I'll trade a 6th gen nano for it or possibly something else (just ask). Thanks, guys!

    I only have an iPod touch 4g generation and iPad 1 but it's not a collection.

    This thread sorta makes me feel better about not having the newest iPad

    Loving the collections by the way :)
