hawcian: My parents knew another rather rich couple who owned a few McDonald's back during the Beanie Baby craze. They gave us enough complete unopened sets of the McDonald's special version (smaller ones?) so that me and my sister both had a complete set to just have and complete set to never open. Pretty sure I still have them all, never got around to getting rid of them. They're worthless.And no, I don't know how my parents came to be friends with people who owned a bunch of fast food restaurants.
TheXerox: I had a high school job at McDonald's when they were giving away Beanie Babies with the happy meals. People could buy up to ten happy meals per visit, they did and we would bust our humps to accommodate them and the zillion or so other people in our store only to see them grab the toys from the boxes and throw the food right into the trash. I believe that was the day I lost faith in humanity.
aerojockey: 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.You mean my complete set of state quarters is not going to be valuable in a few years? All that work for nothing!
