  • Are-Collectibles-still-good-as-investments?

    I was recently asked by a family member whether or not investing in collectibles for his kids was a wise path. My response to him was simple “that depends on if they are investment grade collectibles or not”. So what are investment grade collectibles you ask? That depends on a lot of factors. Some we might be able to predict others we might not. Here is a list of items that we would deem as being investment grade collectibles. These are also some of our favorite items to shell out the big bucks for!

    Baseball cards (PRE 1960) – These the cards that your mother threw away are some of the most consistent investment performers. Condition is paramount but any of the HOFers from this era should do no worse than rising with the rate of inflation. These like all markets can flux depending on media or other events such as deaths or rumors of failing health. While prices will not reach pre-internet highs any time soon you can bet that nice cards will eventually surpass those marks.

    Comic Books (GOLD & SILVER AGE) – The silver age books are actually fairly common but because of poor printing and low quality paper stock finding books in any kind of high grade condition is becoming more and more difficult. The golden age books are particularly rare due to several early political campaigns where the books were actually burned  by parents who were positive they were going to brain wash their kids. Finding significant collections of these books is rare in any condition. While also still trading well below their highs in the 1990s the good stuff remains good and should surpass the rate of inflation even in down economic conditions.

    TOYS (PRE 1970) Marx, Mattel, Hasbro, Lesney, Corgi are just a few of the names that are always in demand. Again condition is key and finding these in original packaging at a decent price… GOOD LUCK! Some classic Marx toys can bring in 4 or even 5 figure money. The investment quality appears to tail off in the 60s when their production was outsourced to Asia. Original Barbie, GI JOE Adventure team, Colorforms.  These have all shown impressive investment performance since the crash of prices from the rise of the internet.

    These are just some examples of items that seem to always be in short supply and high demand. There are countless more and the market is ever changing but you can be sure that these items should always hold their water as investment collectibles.
