i finally started cleaning out my back room... the one that was supposed to be my collection room when i moved into my new apartment 14 months ago, but ended up being the place where stuff that i had no room for ended up. i finally decided that with a few - very, very few - exceptions, i'm going to keep only my star wars stuff and sell everything else. at least, that's the plan going in.
anyway, i was going through some boxes of the star wars figures that i plan on keeping, and got to thinking about cataloging my collection. then i remembered that i had started doing that on some other website, where they keep an online database of what's available, and they update pricing, and yadda yadda yadda. now, i know that i haven't kept up with that in a few years, so it's painfully out of date. but out of curiosity, i looked it up for the first time in a long time today, and it has my collection - or at least the small part of it that i entered into the database a few years back - valued at somewhere around $14,000.
taking into consideration that this database is only for figures, and i haven't updated it in a long time, and that i also collect tons of other star wars related
crap stuff, i'm going to estimate that my entire collection is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $40,000.
now, i didn't start this thread to brag about my collection, because that's probably not alot compared with some other collectors, both here and elsewhere, but it's a pretty good chunk of change to me.
so my question is this: what do you think your collection is worth?
and, perhaps more importantly, do you have collectors insurance? when i was married, we had insurance on our house (of course), but we were told that the insurance didn't cover collectibles. we needed to have a special policy for that. now, i have my own apartment, and i'm looking into getting renter's insurance, just to cover the basics of my apartment - stereo equipment, computer, book, dvd and cd collection, etc. etc - but i'm wondering if regular renter insurance will also cover these collectibles. anybody have any information?
