Adding custom object to combobox displays wrong.

I have a custom class that inherits from 'System.Collections.CollectionBase' but when I add it to a combobox it displays '(Collection)'

I know that you need to override the ToString() Method, and that works for my other objects but not this one, and I think its because of its inheritance.

Any ideas on why or how to fix it?

My class
public class Picklist : CollectionBase
    private string _name;
    public override ToString()
        return _name;
