    Like many others, I love certain collectibles. I enjoy the process of collecting them, and I enjoy owning them. That said, it's my opinion that most people should collect things only because they truly *enjoy* them, for it is my experience that most of the time collections end up being sold for wholesale - not retail - prices, if at all, and thus cost far more to acquire than one will ever get out of them investment-wise.
