styckx: What year am I in?
tapdancingchrist: Spike the Rhino is the best. There can be no discussion.
stuffy: People still collect those things?
Mock26: That seems to be a problem with a lot of modern collectors. They are deluded that items being produced in the millions today will be valuable in a few years.

nimeye: Did this with baseball cards back when I was young. Now I have boxes upon boxes of worthless cardboard.
Mock26: Action Comic 1. There were 200,000 printed but only an estimated 50-100 are still in existence. That is why a crappy quality (graded 1.5 out of 10) would fetch over $100,000 in an auction and why a near mint quality (9/10) fetched over $2,000,000! Not imagine how much Action Comic 1 would be worth today if there were 10,000 still in existence. Or imagine if 50,000 were still around. Or 100,000. Sure, it would still have collectible value, but that is because it was the introduction of Superman. There is actually something of worth with the product. Now look at beanie babies. Millions upon millions of them were manufactured. And they were not even an original idea! Stuffed animals have been around for a very long time. Add to that the fact that a ton of people were collecting them and you really had to have been an idiot to think that they were a good investment. That seems to be a problem with a lot of modern collectors. They are deluded that items being produced in the millions today will be valuable in a few years. Well, I am glad that this idiot bent bankrupt after spending so much money on beanie babies. He really was a moron on a monumental scale.
The Downfall: My 5 year old daughter broke her collarbone on Monday when my 9 year old son ran over her with his bike. (on accident) The x-ray people gave her a pink octopus beanie baby named Inky. She loves it.[www.twinstwo.net image 500x500]
