    Do many folks collect TB stickers?

    I've seen TB stickers posted on eBay and recently noticed one or two folks mentioning being in search of certain colors. Do many folks collect the TB stickers? Have they evolved over the years like the TB labels?

    These stickers are relatively new. I'm sure someone around here can recall when they first made an appearance; I'd venture to say sometime in late 2016. I don't intentionally collect them, but every time I see one I'm reminded of how many orders I've placed recently

    (It irks me a little that people are trying to profit off of these free gifts. But I suppose much like retired TB goods, people are willing to pay for their favorite colors and designs.)

    ETA: I'm still trying to decide which color will go best on my laptop. Hmm...

    Thanks, @bermudajes. I didn't think I remembered receiving stickers over the years, but I also couldn't be sure if I'd just forgotten about them either. Seeing them on eBay, as you say, particularly strikes me as odd/wrong (though unsurprising) -- and made me wonder if I'd missed some sort of phenomenon!

    I only started buying TB in August 2017, but I have received a sticker in every shipment so far.
    They are showing up on EBAY, but I don't know that anyone is buying them... it seems like the same things get posted repeatedly.

    What makes me laugh is the dude on eBay selling a few solar pouches for $80 a piece, I mean seriously? Just because itís a retired color doesnít mean itís worth 4X-5X the original price

    If it's brand new/unused and I really really really wanted it... I think my multiplier is about 2x (for small items) and I would still consider it an absolute first world super indulgent luxury... 4-5x definitely has me scratching my head

    I would think that if you really were after a specific color of sticker, you could just ask when you make an order.
    The TB staff is friendly and nice, and I imagine they'd be happy to pick out the color sticker you wanted if they had it.

    I'm not a sticker person, so I'm afraid the postcard and the sticker is wasted on me. It never even occurred to me sell them, probably because I'd never buy one. If I'd thought ahead, I might have kept them and included them in trades for people who like them.
