Investing in collectibles

    Since whacky investment strategies find favor on this forum...

    I bought 10 of the Swiss Trains at a discounted price of CHF 75 each a few years back and sold them at the local Christmas market for CHF 400 each last winter.

    I also do the same with classic Meccano sets 9 and 10. But I usually have them shipped directly to from the seller to my customer and I usually have the customer lined up before hand. The problem is there are not enough sets to meet demand.

    Wondering about this one, but it is looking a bit pricey:
    Disney Train

    Anyone else involved in collectibles?
