MarketWatch - The Economics of Star Wars Collecting - Peter Fitzke
Sunday 1:30pm
Ever wonder why vintage Star Wars toys are so valuable today? What lead to this phenomenon, what is the future of Star Wars collecting, and will they continue to appreciate in value? "Fratastic" Pete Fitzke of the Star Wars Collectors Archive MarketWatch Blog demystifies these questions and more as he takes you through the science and real life examples of how these soared to such lofty prices in the marketplace. Taking a page from his monthly blog, along with a very loose response to the C6 panel "The End of Star Wars Collecting," Pete talks about the current trajectory of toys, the different eras of toys and where he sees the hobby going in the next 5-10 years and beyond.
