Ahh thanks! Yeah, considering it an investment is foolish - it's a crapshoot. Ebay has made collecting easier and has cheapened the value of many things. It always makes me laugh when a seller puts "hard to find" in their item description, when there's five more of the same item listed. Plus, what's really popular now may not be so hot in 10 or 20 years.
Reminds me of my mother, who collected Beauty & the Beast memorabilia for years. She actually had a room we all called the Beauty & the Beast room that was filled with stuff on display, everything from pencils, soaps, and mugs to figurines and a very expensive 3D shadow box. She always told us it was our inheritance and to not fight over it, lol. Well, she was considering selling some stuff and had us look online to see what the going price was, and was disappointed to find out that her collection wasn't worth quite as much as she'd hoped.
