Departing eau clair, wi, airport on a nice clear light wind day. Picked up the IFR clearance in the air. About 1/2 way to st paul realized I had left my IFR charts at the airport. I continued to stp and landed runway 14. During rollout I inadvertently raised the gear handle in an attempt to raise the flaps. As soon as I moved the lever I knew it was the wrong one and put it back in the down position. The left gear collapsed. Upon review of the paperwork with the FAA representative, we found that I had overlooked the pitot/static inspection due date 2 days previous. I started the flight with a complacent attitude as this would be an 'easy flight.' from now on the preflight preparation will include a more complete check of aircraft readiness and making sure all required equipment is along.
