Unfortunately true. Also, nice Old 97's shirt.
My copy of Spawn #1 in bullet proof case?
With VERY FEW exceptions this is true.
Love that girl and also her Old 97s tee.
I like the cut of this one's jib.
i'll just throw out my amazing fantasy #15 then.
Jason, I've got some bad news for you.If your copy of Amazing Fantasy #15 says "Collector's Item" on the cover, then it is not the real Amazing Fantasy #15.
Amazing Fantasy #15 doesn't say "Collectors Item" on it... but my 30 copies of Cable #1s do! You're telling me they're worthless!? But why? It features the magnificent art of Rob Liefeld! :P
In the words of the Old 97's, "The Salesman is trying to sell you."
It's the truth. Nobody wants to collect stuff that's deliberately made to be a 'collectable.'
Baseball cards, and other trading cards.
Name one baseball card that is worth serious money thats new than 1979
97 Precious Metal Gems Michael Jordan RED variant is worth 5 figures. Good enough?
This isn't true for everything. What about all the new Star Wars toys. They're worth a mint, right?What about DC's New 52? I can retire on my copies of those number ones...
Any food or restaurant that claims to be "gourmet" isn't going to be, either.
Any beef product that's labeled "Kobe Beef" outside of Japan is not Kobe Beef, either.
Oh, they're collectible alright...as in, able to be collected. But just because you can do a thing doesn't mean you should.
I've always enjoyed "collectible" food items, like Wheaties boxes with gold medalists right after the Olympics. I suppose you're supposed to "collect" the box, but the whole collecting culture is so obsessed over non-use, I would think any value they have (yeah, right) would be diminished if you actually ate the cereal.
