Before I give my answer regarding that question I would like to get some other facts into the equation. First let’s deal with an often asked question, will I make money with my hobby of collecting diecast cars toys? The answer is probably not in the monetary sense. Over the years you might just get really blessed and find a real valuable treasure that becomes extremely scarce and creates a windfall that puts a little extra money into your child’s college fund but that will be the exception.
The truth is most collectors have a different goal in mind once they started collecting diecast toy cars it was for that shear fun of it and not simply because they thought it might make them a lot of money in the future. If your goal is to have it as an investment that is going to take care of you for the future, then you need to look elsewhere like stocks, real estate or the gold market.
The investment of your time and money regarding toy diecast cars I believe pays off with the biggest dividend of all, in that it’s an ointment of pure joy which brings healing to the inner child in all of us. They tell us that those who have a pet have an average life expansion of 5 years. Only God knows the healing that joy brings to our heart. It is said that a merry heart does good like a medicine to the bones. I know this, you can have all the money in the world but you can’t buy happiness or health. Therefore anything that brings you joy is priceless. Collector’s all over the world have found this joy and it is one of the roads to happiness. You may ask me where do I begin my journey of collecting, where should I go, what should I buy? The simple answer to this is buy what you are passionate about and what fancy’s your soul in other words buy what you like. I know of one great site that’s a must visit and has the largest diecast cars selection of all The-Diecast Cars.com site which is a good place to start. It is there you can find one of my diecast favorites the beautiful 1934 Bugatti Type 59 Diecast Model Red 1/18 with it’s detailed engine compartment and it is exquisite interior and exterior, a must see to truly appreciate.
These online stores are always good to review but also have a blast checking out flea markets and garage sales where you will have the fun of finding some real treasures of diecast cars to add to your collection.
Finally we come to the answer of how do I maintain my Collection? Please don’t be like some others who never take their cars out of the box but instead puts them away thinking I might get rich off of them someday. Get rich today, start enjoying that treasure now by putting them out on your coffee table, shelf or desk and have your reward of joy by playing with them from time to time.
