I've been collecting since I was seven when Raiders first came out and I saw it in the theatre. I bought every action figure and every playset that Kenner put out, including the 12 inch version (none of these are in pristine condition, mind you, because I used them! But I still have the boxes for the playsets), Then, in no particular order, this seems to be the meat and bones of my collection:
All of the Marvel comics (The Further Adventures of Indiana Jones)
The board game released by kenner
Many of the cards by Topps for Temple of Doom, and some from Raiders
The Role playing game by TSR in 1984
Several books and novels
Both the Advance-release and release posters for Last Crusade
The audio cassette versions of all three sound tracks
The videotapes (of course)
Last Crusade big puzzle
Indy, Mola Ram, and Thuggee figures from LJN
An original Last Crusade embroidered patch from Lucasfilm
The tan baseball cap from Lucasfilm with LC embroidered on it
The white t-shirt from Lucasfilm with LC logo on front and back
Original glasses in mint condition from Burger King of Temple of Doom
A glossy of Harrison Ford that his agent, Pat McQueeney sent (with the non-handwritten signature stamped on it).
(This one was especially disappointing to an 8 year-old kid who writes away asking for a genuine autograph and gets a stamped version instead!
An 8X10 glossy black and white from Last Crusade of Indy, Henry and Sallah looking over the cliff at the tank.
I have ordered the Last Crusade game for PC
The Fate of Atlantis for Macintosh
An old lucasfilm licensed wool fedora
Two Herbert Johnson Fedoras
The original Raiders jacket
A 10 foot David Morgan Bullwhip
Two pairs of the shoes from Alden (gave my first pair away-only two left)
The shoulder bag with leather strap and buckle
A bronze casting of the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra
A zippo with hand-painted four-leaf clover design on it, matching Elsa's
The webley pistol and holster, leather belt and whip holder
A shirt custom made for me by a seamstress friend of mine (she will hopefully make me more plus the pants).

I may be missing something, but I think that's about it. Certainly not as much as some other collectors, but I've always been discriminating-never had an interest, for instance, in the Pepsi promos that came out during the Last Crusade's release, for example.
