    I'm getting a headache. Please, please, someone tell me they are making money off the impOster and his flock of devoted worshipers. Am I the only one who sold poorly made Obama bumper stickers during the election? Hasn't someone gotten out a soldering gun and baked the image of the Anti-Christ into a tortilla yet? This is America for Gods sake, the most profitable way to secure your adversaries downfall is to exploit him. Sell as much useless merchandise as possible until the public gets sick of it. I haven't heard much out of Disco or Pet Rocks lately, so it's a strategy that works.

    Anyone interested in some armbands?

    And ANYTHING that is marketed with the words "collectible" or "collectors edition" is most certainly not collectible. You never know what is truly collectible until many years after it was produced, and there is actual demand by real collectors.

    I was buying all the US Proof Sets every year for about a decade, and one particular silver set from one year actually ended up being worth some real money. The rest are worth just barely more than what I paid for them.


    I always wondered about the Franklin Mint crap that is always advertised in magazines. The ads always say that the items will increase in value, but it all looks like crap. The only time I was tempted to buy anything was when they had a Mrs. Beasley doll (like Buffy's in "Family Affair"), for my sister. She had one of those dolls as a little kid and wouldn't go anywhere without it. I could probably find an original on Ebay, though.

    Yep...Here ya go.

    Now I will admit to owning 2 collector plates, one for the Animaniacs and the other for Pinky and the Brain. Both are autographed by the actors and actress who did the voices for Yakko, Wakko, Dot, Pinky and The Brain.

    First off, why would I want to buy a coin that is all colred? It looks like fake baby toy money or something. And for that much money? Jesus the government is already using Obama to take our money! ;) Plus, why would I want to buy a coin with Obama on it...
