Collectors' items are worth a fortune because of their rarity, and vintage toys have risen in resale value these days due to nostalgia fueled by some new movies slated to come out in the near future.
With this increase in demand, '90s toys have seen a bit of resurgence, and you might want to dig through your toy stashes in the attic to see if you've got some of the most valuable '90s toys. Based on The Toy Zone's research, here are some '90s toys that are worth a fortune today:
Out of all the '90s Nintendo video games, Mario Kart 64 has a current value of $21,812.56 beating out some classics like Kid Dracula, the 1993 Game Boy spinoff of Castlevania, selling at $20,400, and The Flintstones: Treasure of Madrock for the SNES, with a current value of $19,999.
Pokémon cards are also worth a lot, with some going as high as six figures, and Logan Paul's Pikachu Illustrator topping the list, selling at $6 million. If you have the 1st Edition Shadowless Charizard card, however, it can fetch you up to $420,000 on the auction market. Sitting in third place is the Wizards of the Coast Presentation Galaxy Star holo Blastoise card, currently at $350,000.
Due to the recent critical success of the Barbie movie, some vintage Barbie dolls are also fetching quite a good price, but none as high as the De Beers 40th Anniversary Barbie from 1999, which is selling at $85,000. The rest of the Barbie collection are priced at $1,200 or less, which might still be a good deal.
The ones above are the most expensive from the list but The Toy Zone also included electronic consoles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures, and vintage blasters, although not as lucrative save for the Scratch the Cat (AFA 80) TMNT action figure, whose resale value is currently at $10,000. - via Digg
