I doubt either of those things will gain much value.
#5
I have a vintage 70s Fender Bassman ten that will hopefully gain value.

Im holding a small child captive in my room...............holding out for a larger ransom. A few more weeks and it should have gained a bit of value.


I am of course kidding, i have nothing that i can think off. Maybe an old thing ive wrote or made of something. It could be worth a lot if i become incredibly famous.

I have Pokemon cards, **** loads... Hold on a sec.
Edit:
I've got my easy money scheme worked out. These babies will go for £100 a card in a few years, watch this space!

Apparently drink cans gain value over the years, and I have a ****load of them lying about. I also have a toy Aston Martin DB5 (the one from Thunderball) that came out in the 70's with the ejector seat, still works perfect, that's worth a lot now.

I've got some books about WWI and such which are up to date now, so if they go out of print in the future they may gain some extra value.

I have a 30 year old amp&cab that's been used by a famous danish band. It has absolutely no value as a hard rock amp, since everything halfways distorted sounds like dying kittens.

But the clean and slight-moderate gained sound.....Oh my sweet Louise.... *boner*

i get pretty annoyed when people are saving something and plan on selling it for millions when they're older, "cuz it will be worth so0o much lolz". it just never happens. the things the people are saving aren't very rare in the first place, they think just because they wait a little longer, they'll be the only ones with them. pokemon cards for example, you aren't going to make much money off of them. think about how many people have cards. they will not raise in value during our lifetime. the only things you can really count on would be stuff that was signed or taken directly from a famous person, or something that was already valuable when you bought it. i don't know of anyone who has actually made decent money out of something they have been saving their whole lives.

your best chance at making money off of pokemon cards and beanie babies was to sell them at the height of their popularity. think about it, you yourself probably overpaid for these 'precious gems'. you always hear people talking about how they're going to sell their pokemon cards, but you never hear anybody actually interested in buying them. who would really pay much for a bunch of little kid hobby cards that are out of fashion and will never be used?

just my two cents.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

You're wrong.

This morning I recieved a signed 7" single by a british band called The Music.

I know for a fact its price will only go up, because I bought one of only 500. Regardless, I would never sell it, but thats not the point.

By the way, that whole Pokemon cards thing was a joke, just sayin'.

#35
ive got a bunch of silver certificates from the 40's, a bunch of comics form the 50's and 60's, a ton of early 80's-90's baseball and basketball cards, some signed sports stuff, and a bunch of spanish coins from the treasure ships that crashed off the coast of florida, everything else im "collecting"(holding onto cause it dosnt sell) probobly isnt going up in value such as magic cards, toys(i have all the original power ranger figures with their vehicals in the boxes), pogs, etc. come to think of it, i have a ton of crap back home that probably isnt worth the space they take up

edit: if you all think the old NES, SNES, sega, sega genisis, gen 1 game boy, n64, dreamcast, ps1, etc will gain value i still have those laying around since i never saw the point of selling them back. **** tons of games too... but i highly doubt anyone will pay anything worth a damn for em.

Not right now, but the number of working NES consoles are decreasing, and in 30 or so years they may be well sought after. Most consoles and old vintage computers will become worth something when the amount of them left is little.


Or when hollywood or whoever decides retro gaming is cool. Whichever comes first.

well im just sittin on them, if they become worth anything, i'll cash in. if not then they will end up re-wrapped and given to my kids as christmas presents.
