5 collections worth more than you think
From rare LEGO sets and exclusive sneakers to vintage music posters, these five Victorians have amassed collectible items for very different reasons. Here are their amazing stories of personal collections that are now worth a pretty penny.
Listening to someone talk about their hobbies, with their face lighting up, is one of life’s great pleasures – and when those hobbies grow into collections that are increasing in value, it makes it even more special.
For some Victorians, their hobby for collecting specific items started as kids, like George, who would buy $3 packs of Pokémon cards to play with his brother, or Sam who started collecting Nintendo games, consoles, and merchandise from age 12.
Then there’s Nick, whose love of music posters began as a child growing up in Croatia, where his family lived above a man who was a baritone for the theatre.
Whether your own personal collection or household contents hold sentimental or financial value, or you’re just starting your collecting journey, it’s important to protect your prized possessions in the event of something unexpected occurring.
