The act of trading in any collectible that is graded, vacuum sealed in a lucite case or comes
with a Certificate
of Authenticity. i.e. Sports cards, comic books, toys, NASCAR commemorative plates, Civil War themed
Chess sets, Beanie Babies, anything with the words "Star" and "Wars"...
The value of these items
can rise and fall on a whim, but in the end they have no true value, despite what your monthly Beckett or Wizard guides may lead
you to believe.
Dow sets all-time high; Blue-chip
indicator manages highest close ever, taking out a 6-1/2-year-old record; falling oil is the catalyst; and good
news for those holding
Tickle Me Elmos in the White Trash Stock Market sector.
