PICK YOUR HEROES - Whoever They Are
I remember Roy Rogers, Hopalog Cassidy, Whip Wilson, Howdy Doody, Popeye, Captain Mavel, Dick Tracey, Flash Gordon, Lone Ranger, Mickey Mouse, Daniel Boone, any Soldier and so many other Heroes from my youth. These Heroes appeared bigger than life to me, and I loved each one. We played outside a lot in Kentucky, and imitating these characters was where we spent most of our time.
Who were your heroes? If you are older than me, they would have come from the Bible, newspapers or the radio. But if you are younger, they probably came from comic books, television or the computer. These characters can range from Li'l Abner to the Beatles, but the one thing that they all have in common is that they have become very collectible.
A Superman ring will bring thousands of dollars, while a Steiff Teddy Bear might easily bring forty or fifty Thousand. Beatles memorabilia can bring hundreds of thousands for one piece and the same can be said of Elvis.
There seems to be no shortage of money when collectors want that special item that puts them in touch with their childhood. We all have fabulous memories of the past, and these character seem to dim the hard times we might have had from our thoughts.
As you are out there seaching for Treasure, be sure to include your Heroes in that search. Don't forget that Robot that brought over $100,000 or that Hot Wheel bringing $18,000. These aren't some distant dream, but items that are being found every day by someone, and it could easily be you.
We are starting a new week, and there will be a new Star. Perhaps your name will appear in that section. Dreams are only as good as you make them, so dream on and never let anyone or anything take your dreams from you. Let me hear from you.
