Stamp Collecting - - Here are some of the most valuable
If you've ever collected anything, whether it be baseball cards, stands to bottle caps, you might want to revisit your collection after taking a look at this list of rare collectibles. From baseball cards, comic books, bottle caps, to vases, there is no limit to the things that people collect. There is something thrilling and nostalgic about hunting down an item in order to complete your collection. Some popular collector’s items are worth more than others, and you just never know the value of something until you look it up. You will want to take a look at the full list of ten of the worlds rarest collectibles at the 2-Clicks Stamps site. The following are just some of the collectibles you will find on the list.
1. The Amazing Spider-Man comic. Collecting comics is just one of the activities to do that kid's love. This shows that you might want to keep those comics for safe keeping. The Amazing Spider-Man comic is now worth $40,000 or more, as it was the first issue in the saga of Stan Lee’s crime-fighting web-slinger and is worth a bit more than the 12 cents that it sold for on release day. BBC presenter Johnathan Ross spent a long time tracking down this comic collectable, calling it one of his most prized possessions. Ross hopes to auction it off for a good cause.
2. Treskilling yellow stamp. In 1855, Sweden issued a postage stamp series that featured the Swedish coat of arms. This Treskilling, or three units of currency, stamp was usually printed as blue-green, but an error in the printing caused a handful of stamps to be a yellow color instead. Only one copy of the yellow Treskilling stamp has ever been found, and in 1996, the stamp sold for $2.3 million.
3. Porcelain Vase. Collecting vases for use in your diy and flower projects is a popular thing for some to do. But this vase is one that you might want to be careful with. The vase is a $1.2 million vase from China’s Yuan Dynasty. From the years 1271 to 1368, the Chinese decorated porcelain with white and blue patterns. A few centuries later, the design’s popularity, and value soared.
4. Double Fantasy, which was an album by John Lennon. John Lennon released this collaboration with his wife Yoko Ono just three weeks before his tragic death. Despite a lukewarm reception, the album by Lennon was named Album of the Year at the 24th annual Grammy Awards. One copy of the album was signed by Lennon, and it was the last album that he ever signed, and earned a $525,000 price tag.
5. A pair of Levi Strauss & Co 501s. As popular as jeans are today, you would be in luck if you got yourself one of the original pairs from the 1880s. The pricey pair of jeans were obtained by a Japanese collector who paid $60,000 for a pair in an eBay auction.
Collecting is usually an unconscious project to do. It really hits home when you realize that you have amassed more than 5 or 10 of something, and when people start associating you with the thing you are collecting. But sometimes collecting as one of many activities to do is a conscious decision. Collecting might be a way to remember vacation trips, or when you want to decorate your house with a personal touch or decide to look for fun items when shopping. In any case, even though you should always collect with your heart, you can still collect smart. You will find this list of 10 of the world's rarest collectibles at the 2-Clicks Stamps site. On the site you will find activities to do, projects to do, diy, investing, saving and more. **
