The love for collecting often begins when we acquire a new baseball card or win a bid on a rare toy, but sometimes we hold onto collections because we think they might be worth something someday. Sadly, this isn’t the case for the items on this list, unless it’s something scarce. Keep reading to determine if it’s time to clean out your collection.
One of the most popular items on this list is Ty Beanie Babies. After acquiring one, you’re compelled to find more. Kids enjoy the toys for the unique ‘bean’ stuffing instead of the typical fluff you find in plush toys.
In 1995, adults began collecting Beanie Babies as an investment because of their high resale value. That year, the toys sold on eBay for ten times the original purchase price. Once the fad passed, so did their value.
