I realize I may look a bit OCD, but having the wrong stickers on the
tubes never bothered me.

Well I'm OCD enough not to be able to stand the stickers at all, because they eventually peel up from moisture (or is it from drying out--whatever). And I have to have all the tops facing the same way and so-forth. I like opening my Icehouse box to be akin to the scene from Raiders of the Lost Arc or Pulp Fiction. *gleem*

Uh, without the face-melting of RotLA.
Also, don't misunderstand the two trays of dice in that case only
represent about 8% of my total collection.  Those are just some of the
more unique dice that I like to be able to show off at game stuff.

Ah, your precious stones, metallic dice, personalized dice from cons, and so-forth. ;)

Yeah, I'm think I should never have chucked dice out, but I went through a big cull some years back. All those crappy dice that came in boxed D&D and Gangbusters and Boot Hill and so forth... really had to go.

And I'm almost exclusively Chessex, now--I LOVE my Borealis series dice for being blingy at the cons, and my black on yellow opaque for those bleary-eyed, all-night games. And Mechaton is a feast for the eyes, for a dicehead, given that it requires five colors just to play and you end up with anywhere from ten to twenty of two of those colors on the playing surface at any given time.
