So much for the doutone retirement plan...

My Dad found a couple old comics and gave them to me. I expected the Wolvering one to be worth more, but let me give you the full run down:

  • Marvel Comics Presents #85 Wolverine. Current value: $8.00. Originally published 1991 for $1.25. 640% increase in value over 18 years. Notable i that it is the first Jae Lee work.
  • X-Factor #23: $4.00. Originally published in 1987 for $0.75. 533% increase in value over 22 years.
  • Armor #2: $3.00. Originally published in 1986 for $2.00. A 150% increase in value over 23 years. This si the oldest one of the three, and the original price is the highest, by far. Who charged $2.00 for a new comic in 1986? Continuity Comics out of Canada, apparently ($2.95 in Canadian).

Over all, original expenditure of $4.00, now valued at $15.00.

The other thing a grabbed from when I was a kid, the board game Dragonmaster. Who wants to come give this blast from the past a try?

And last but not least, I found but forgot to pack, Dungeon, Gary Gygax's board game predecessor to Dungeons and Dragons.

I'm surprised. I thought comic books still fetched a lot.

Which reminds me, Alyssa has a couple of glow worms and cabbage patch dolls still in the box. Hitting ebay to see what we can get!
