I like silver dollars. I just wish I could afford more than ten of them.
Comic books? Puh-leeeease! All the valuable ones are spoken for and accounted for. It's too late to get into that niche now as a greenie. Nothing, and I mean nothing printed within the last 30 years will be worth anything more than what a hardcore old-school comic book fan will want to pay for them. And they're buying them to read or complete an old collection.
The only value in comic books right now is the value that Hollywood sees in using the characters from them and turning them into clichéd summer flicks.
Not sure there is much fact or truth on this regarding the value of baseball and all sports cards.
Vintage (pre-1980) cards, certified autographs and memorabilia sell very well especially when in graded condition from the top grading companies.
Jennifer should stick to subjects that she knows about and avoid those she does not.
I think gold and silver will always be a good investment , I have bought and sold for years it's a very interesting hobby to get into . Beware of the counterfeiters out there China is really hurting the market for new collectors .

Well, it could be, but realize when you sell there to cash out on your bonanza (and most of those categories given above are littered with so many commons that have little resale value), eBay takes a 13% cut. 10% commission and another 3% for PayPal. When you sell on eBay, you have to accept PayPal, unless you are a huge merchant who draws so much revenue, eBay lets you write your own rules.
For the rest of us, eBay is the judge, jury and executioner. Have fun!
