You mention very expensive things that few of us would ever buy. how about mentioning things that most collectors, who are not Billionaires collect.

If you collect wine and expect to make money selling it at a later date, you had better have the proper storage for it and documentation to the fact that it has been properly stored or else that expensive wine will pretty much be considered nothing more than vinegar to collectors.

Did you notice, "old" people are not on the list!  They must be the only thing appreciated, and depreciating in value, at the same time.  Its a shame!

Sure and most of us are likely to own something like this? Fat chance!

my father in-law told me the best way to double your money is fold it over & put it back in your wallet

I enjoy antiques such as Melodeons( organs from1860s) and old radios, such as my 1930's Silvertone  AM table top.  They may not sell for millions but, to me, they're fun to have.  So-called "investment grade" items in this article are out of my league.

The best investment I ever made was when I bought my Amazing Spider-Man #1.

I'm going to cash in all of my real estate and IRA holdings and invest in stamps. What could go wrong???

Fine art , cars, stamps, coins ........ OK MSN wake your as up since only the high end or rare among  these items go up. Most of this stuff is just that stuff and nothing more.

My father collected stamps for 50 years, when he died and we tried to sell them, we got 35% of the Face value.   The only way to make out of them is to buy just the really rare ones, and the average person cannot afford to buy them.
