It’s a scary thought. Comics being pushed out and video games becoming overwhelmingly dominant. Heck, may have already started.
 

All of a sudden I’m feeling a bunch of empathy for the stamp guys...

And there you have it. It usually is the things that no one really thinks will be worth anything that become so valuable. In 1909 The American Tobacco Company  issues T206 Honus Wagner Cards.  In 1939 no one thought a comic would be millions. 1980 Apple shares went public for $22 a share. In 1993 Magic the Gathering kicked off Alpha which was about $2-3 per pack.  In 1997 Amazon share went public for $18.   Almost any of these could have made you a millionaire today.

Even with Action Comics #1, you had to wait a good 40 years before it was serious money. Not many of us are thinking about that long of an ROI.

I sold an old torn-up cereal box for $540 a few years ago. Admittedly it was an Aussie 1966 Batman theme, but still. Nobody deliberately kept stuff like that other than garbage hoarders.

I see '60s candy bar wrappers routinely go for over $100 apiece. A few boxes of household paper garbage from the '60s would make for a decent retirement fund now. Throw in a few toys, garage-band records and comics from the time and that's a lot of bingo money.

This kid needs to crawl back under the heatpress he was birthed out of.

Took the words right out of my mouth.  

This is an example of exactly why most valuable items are that way.  Comics were thrown out, burned.

MTG was a card game for kids and most were played with or thrown out on top of already limited numbers.

A lot of metal toys, cars etc was scrapped for the war efforts. 

All history.. now setting historical prices.

Wait till wildfires and climate change destroy most comic collections.

Not anymore after his previous efforts at 'damage control' and consolidation but I'm sure he still reads here.  I'm sure he's making a list...

Not at all taken in historical and economical hobby context. The reason why we are here posting on a CGC forum can be attributed the wide spread actions those pictures show. Most threw out their comics, junked them, or rat-holed them in conditions far from ideal to their surviving intact. Very few didn't and this is the reason for their rarity and current value. If they weren't discarded en masse, like we see here, they'd be common. 

Or, apparently, those who also read keys while sitting on the toilet...

That'll just make the surviving collections even MORE rare! An upside to everything.

The next global flood's gonna be bad news for collectors of just about anything.
