Collectors' Items is a 1956 studio album by Miles Davis. There are two sessions collected on the album with largely different musicians.

The personnel for the first session were Davis, Sonny Rollins and Charlie Parker (credited under the nom de plume "Charlie Chan" due to his contractual obligations to a rival label) on tenor saxes, Walter Bishop on piano, Percy Heath on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. For the second session, the tenor sax was Rollins alone, the piano was Tommy Flanagan, the bass Paul Chambers and Art Taylor on drums.
