Daryle Lambert: WOW! It could have been you
I believe it has begun in earnest and that is the appreciation of the Obama memorabilia. I was watching the news on Yahoo and a gentleman was talking about the car that he had purchased for $24,000 and now had it listed on eBay for a price of one million dollars “buy it now”. He listed it at the end of last year and took it down on advice from his accountant but there were 41 bids and a high price of $1,551.000.
The new listing shows a starting price of $100,000 but only from approved bidders. It will be interesting to see what the final bid will be but, whatever it is, in the future that price may prove to be a bargain. It is too late to buy that car but what else should we be looking for that has been a part of President Obama's life?
The hunt for the Obama treasures will be a continuing adventure and this gives you the opportunity to cash in on it. My suggestion to you is to try to find things that were part of his early life, like letters that he wrote as a young man, Boy Scout cards if he was a scout, driver’s licenses, school papers he signed and I am sure you can think of many more. Don't forget his wife and children, because items they possessed will also have value. When they sold Kennedy's items, his son’s rocking horse brought over $100,000, if I remember correctly.
It would be an interesting idea to just concentrate on Obama over the next few years and see if by doing so you could become the “go to” guy or gal for information and items pertaining to President Obama. I have read articles about the biggest dealers in sports memorabilia and they have become extremely wealthy. This will happen with the President’s collectibles also.
I would like to hear from some of you that took my idea of going to Obama's headquarters and collected campaign items that will do nothing but go up in value over the next ten years. If you were fortunate enough to get duplicates, don't sell them all at once.
It still isn't too late to cash in on this special event that will occur next Tuesday.
