What are some of the hottest products in the collectibles market now?
We know some guys like Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa have been red hot for awhile. Anything Bryce Harper or Josh Donaldson is way up in 2015. Marcus Mariota has lead the NFL class this year for sales by a wide margin. Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel are the favorites in NHL cards. Karl-Anthony Towns and early surprise Kristaps Porzingis have been huge so far. Garbage Pail Kids continue to be a popular area of collecting. Vintage sportscards, especially pre-1960 in higher grades has continued to shock with records prices nearly every week. How about new things to watch and possibly things you haven't considered yet this year?
For trading cards there are plenty of new sportscards sets coming out in December including Bowman Draft baseball, Topps Chrome football, Panini Prizm basketball and Upper Deck Black Diamond hockey to name some of our favorites. In non-sport the hottest sets are all centered around the new Star Wars movie release Episode VII: The Force Awakens! Topps hobby boxes will have the best items to find in packs! There will also be a Topps High Tek star wars set this year!
In video games for younger players its looking like Skylanders has another run in them with the new Superchargers starter packs and related figures being released. Elementary and up to middle school students, both boys and girls love this series still. The best of the collectibles are the first series figures that are more challenging to find that were part of the "Spyros Adventure" set.
For older gamers, Call of Duty: Black Ops III on all systems will be very hot this year! New graphics engines, new exo-suits and it's Call of Duty? Best selling game of the year candidate?! Destiny: The Taken King is soon to add new Sparrow racing among other challenges and continues to be very popular. Fallout 4 has landed with rave reviews. Will any of these games in unopened condition be very valuable in 25 years? Will be fun to watch.
