I know most of you get carried away with the hype, especially low-cost ones. Luckily for you, these low-cost collectibles can make a great fortune in the future.
First Edition Books
This doesn’t mean you have to look for vintage books. Just the first editions or the original releases of a book will do. For example, the first original edition of Harry Potter books can soar up to 5 figures for book collectors. Books are low-cost collectibles, especially that of a renowned author.
Star Wars Merchandise
Figurines and other original Star Wars merchandise are highly likely to go up in value. It also depends on the rarity of the stuff. If it is a limited edition figurine, expect the price to go sky high in the future. Star Wars is a franchise that most adults now grew up watching. If you stumble upon a Star Wars collectible that you can probably afford now, you might want to think of it as an investment.
We all grew up wanting a box of LEGO every Christmas as a gift. Did you know that investing in LEGO has been considered as a more lucrative investment than gold? Secondhand LEGO toys soar up in value the longer you keep it, an estimate of 11% every year, in fact. That’s because the LEGO Company retires certain sets that they won’t produce anymore. For instance, LEGO’s Millenium Falcon set was sold in an auction for $15,000 dollars from its original price of $450 per set. These brick toys are definitely low-cost collectibles that can make you a fortune!
You might chance upon a thrifty vintage comic book in a garage sale that is now valued at 5 figures! Old comic books, ones that were released at least 30 years ago, are now a treasure to collectors who would pay your price just to get the item.

Old coins are valuable. You might find one in your old drawer, from a garage sale, or from your grandparents’/parents’ stuff. This 1794 Silver Dollar was sold at an auction for around $10million back in 2013. The older the coin is, the higher its value now will be.
Classic Pinball Machine
You might want to buy a cheap classic pinball machine you see online. Chances are they will rise in value in the future! A newer and recent pinball game is worth $3,000 today. Imagine how much a collector would pay just to have the vintage version of this game!
