VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
This was a lame article and lacked any real depth of knowledge of the subject. Please find sommeone who knows something about collectibles to actually write about them.
You missed major bank on items such as vintage Hotwheels, Corgis & Matchbox cars, comic books, baby boomer toys, disney anything, Lladro, Hallmark Ornaments!!!
Holy cow you can have christmas ornaments worth hundreds of dollars in a box and not know it! These are things everyone has a chance of having in their house.
Cigars? I mean really? Aside from them not being good for you, they are nthing more than an indulgent habit. Now Cigar labels on the other hand...
I WISH IT WAS THAT EASY TO SELL COLLECTABLES. I HAVE 1OOO'S OF 1971 THRU 1989 BASEBALL CARDS. (TOPPS,
FLEERS, DONUS & ECT.) MAY BE I'M DOING SOMETHING WRONG. EVERY BODY SAYS IT'S EASY,I DON'T THINK SO.I'VE
PUT THEM ON EBAY AND HAD NO LUCK.IF ANY ONE CAN HELP I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. J.
well what about old coins from 1778 i have multiple of them and i have old 100 dollar bills and 500 dollar bills from world war 1 how much do you think i could get from that?
Please Put more to your story's you leave people going What Huh ? where's the rest.
Now, 30 years later, guys in their 30s and older come in with their collection of 80s and 90s cards thinking they are going to get rich, and I have to tell them their cards are worthless and will still be worthless 100 years from now. My advice is to donate them to a children's hospital and take the tax write off.
i collected cards when little. baseball, football and basketball cards. recently started collecting again because miss the hobby. instead of buying packs, i just collect rookie cards. i dnt see it as investments i just enjoy collecting them. and yeah, my wife still roll her eyes. she doesnt get it
If you really want to know what things are selling for, check the ebay completed auctions. That's what I do before i price anything.
