  1. I’ve listed pre-1950 Royal Doulton figurines on line at very reasonable prices, some as low as $100, and did not receive even a nibble. Listing a series of items and their supposed selling prices without any more details like in which markets and how these items are sold is hardly helpful.


  2. I miss the hard copy of Moneysense


  3. Worst article ever. No details or specifics. Looks like someone grabbed 4 random items for the list; an eight year old could do that. What not spend some time exploring why things are collectible (e.g. baby boomers reenacting their childhood) and use some specific examples of why one item might be more valuable in the future versus a similar type of item that likely will not increase over time. Then this article might be worth reading.
