This thread is dedicated to those who collect things, buy-sell-trade or want to know what something is worth.

If you've got an item, someone here knows about it or may want to own it.
Insert a photo, comment about what you have or ask your question and see what you get.

If you have an item to buy-sell or trade with other planet members...do so at your own risk and level of trust.

Do you collect pocket knives, old toys, antiques............teach me.
My suggestion is that any transaction results in a small donation to the planet.

If you have an area that you know a lot about that others may not, like coins or things to look for good/bad I'd like to hear it.

I've been going to more auctions lately, and I've seen the full spectrum of the types of collectibles I run into and know nothing about. WWII items that were taken from dead Germans, military memorabelia, model planes etc.

My personal areas of interest right now are Old toys-stamped steel trucks and equipment, vintage fishing lures, and a few other things. I'm in the learning process and dipping my toes in the water. I'm probably more of an eBay seller than a flea market guy due to time and location. I'm a sponge and I'd like to be filled with the knowledge this place holds.

I watched an entire table of baseball, hockey and football cards sell, a lot from the 90s, for less than $50. The same auction had entire tables of old wooden train, plane and ship models that went for that ballpark. I didn't have room or knowledge so I stayed away.

I have a lot of old unique Chiefs merchandise that I really don't value much. I'd love to find a buyer for it but I happen to know a lot of it is quite valuable even with the current state of affairs. Also have an old Rolex I don't use and would like to find a buyer. About the only things I collect at this point are logo golf balls from courses I've played and cowboy artifacts for display in our living area. Pretty lame, I know.

If you know a subject, feel free to share things that make those items valuable and maybe things to look for that reduce value.

Condition of course is the hallmark for pin-up art. Also if its a calendar or sketch pad, is it complete with all the months?
A simple tear out like the one above is worth perhaps $5-10. It also depends on the artist. Like Varga stuff, which I don't care for, goes for some pretty big cash, especially is the subject is someone famous..like Monroe.
One thing I can tell you is if you come across full 1950-1959 full pin-up calendars cheap, Buy Them.
Also if you find pin up calendars with Cellophane Lifts..you know lift the sheet and the boobies are revealed those are very collectable.

I do get somewhat annoyed by the whole culture it's created. I love the show and especially the passion Mike in particular shows about what he does.

I went on a homes tour in the DM area this summer..... .5-1mil homes. Every single one of them was decorated with sticks and old shit I've been burning and recycling for years.

I've burned and smashed thousands and thousands of dollars of valuable "vintage" stuff over the years.

It's one of the advantages of the area in which i live, there is still quite a lot of items like you're talking about available...and lots of old farmers retiring or passing away.


It's giving me a way to make a little coin with some of the items I found on my farm too. I've got a box of old traps that will end up hanging in dens, some old solvent cans...wood crates....barn and farm pulleys etc....

This is the part of the whole thing that annoys me, 5 years ago those houses were probably stuffed with Pier 1 BS or whatever was "hot" at the time. I like it when people actually decorate in a style that they have always admired, but that would require the American public to actually think for themselves.

I've always thought just buying boxes of smalls (small old toys/dolls, fishing lures, etc) and selling them individually on ebay would be a very easy way to make money. I've also wanted to do this for years with garage sales and old lady items.

Ebay and Paypal fees and shipping eat up profits fast. Unless you're selling something valuable that you bought very cheap, I would think "garage sale and old lady items" would be a lot of effort for little payoff.

However, you do have a much chance at finding a real deal at a garage sale-type situation than an auction. If something truly has some value, chances are that someone there is going to know and bid you up. And if something SEEMS like it has value, the rubes will bid it up because they think it is valuable. I dabble a bit in coins, and I routinely see common-date circulated silver dollars available for $25-40 in most pawn shops and ebay go for $50+ because they SEEM cool and valuable.

got a case of about 50 45 records from the 50's and 60's...beatles, johnny cash, bill haley and the comets, etc.

graystoke,

The advice on "steam punk and Industrial" has been very helpful and valuable to me.
I have access to a lot of that type of item.

I don't "get" steampunk when you look at the dress and costume and things they're putting on their outfits, but I have plenty of access to old industrial stuff, and rustic metal items that appear to be of value in that movement.

Thanks. That alone has made this thread a success for me.

It depends, if graded by a legit company, a high grade card can bring some serious coin. If its raw and kinda tough looking, $20 may be generous. Lots of cards out there, so condition is the be all make it or break it for newer material.

Workbenches are great because they are perfect to re-purpose. Check out some of the values they are fetching on ebay. I know they want the top dollar, and usually don't get it, but it gives an idea where to start. I gave $250 for the workbench I just got. I figure that was a fair deal, considering I would not sell it for that.

Got some pretty sick wolf apparel.

Be careful who you sell that too, not everyone can handle wearing the three wolf t-shirt.

I have these wine bottles that I bought back in the 90's. Not sure of the value since I rarely see them for sale online.

This picture is from some ad that wants $400 for the set. Not sure that they are really worth that much, but it's the exact same set I have.

I collect Coca-Cola memorabilia, but I don't have an extensive collection by any means. However I do have an extensive collection of die-cast cars, probably a couple hundred Hot-Wheel sized ones, mostly old muscle cars and NASCAR race cars, and some larger scale ones. Don't judge me.

Too bad you don't live in NC the college I work at is getting rid of a HUGE coca cola banner I mean its probable 7ft by 25ft. It would cost a fucking fortune to ship though.

I found a vintage workbench in DBQ IA.

Works perfect for a kitchen island. Good patina, maple top.

Thats a really nice piece.

Thanks. It ended up being a perfect kitchen island.

I don't know why, but when I see perfectly good stuff, about to be thrown away, I grab it.
This thing is heavy as crap and workable. I love the look but have no idea what to do with it.

I've collected comic books, magazines of all types(life,time) to old newspapers or more importantly any newspaper with important news in it for example the Dallas newspaper the day after JFK was killed to just plain old newspapers my oldest 1868.
Also papers that state something odd before the truth was known like a Washington DC paper stating the headline Hitler World Hero...before the truth was realized.

I've been doing the above for over 40 yrs and even though my collection is in the walk up attic my wife would shed tears of joy if one day it was to spontaneously catch on fire.

Out of my collection the comics are worth the most.
I'm guessing but I probably have over 5k comics all bagged and in order.

I've recently stopped collecting comics the cost is simply out of control anymore to keep up unless a special issue comes out.
When I started collecting each book was 15 cents now $3.99 on average.
If there is anything I want to read I download it.

I forgot to mention I have a fair amount of Pulp magazines as well maybe 150 or so many of these very rare.

From what I can see it looks like a hoist. Hang it from an a-frame and use it to lift heavy stuff, like engines.

Another cool industrial item, they seem to be gaining favor and they can still be found for a reasonable price and used to decorate.

This is pretty similar to the kind of stuff I'm hunting down and selling.
I seem to be mostly dealing in vintage cast iron and barn pulley stuff.
I've got a couple of barn hay trolleys I'm pondering for projects.

I'm building a house this year, so I'm planning on making an industrial
chandelier with pulleys, chain, a barn trolley and some old oil lanterns
to hang over our dining table.

I'm thinking about building a couple of them to sell too.


My people kind of make fun of me now for the way I'm hunting this stuff.
When it's deer season, I see deer everywhere I drive. Fishing time, I see ponds
hidden in the brush, turkey season I see strutting toms. Now....I see old barns
junk piles, busted up houses..............treasure chests.


If anyone is a plumber or tearing down houses.....I'm looking for a pile of old cast water and gas line shutoff valves-knobs etc. Take all you can find if the price is fair.
