I take our toys, comics, and collectables unquestionably seriously.
- How seriously? Aside from our homeowner’s insurance, I also have a separate policy just for our collection of vintage toys and books.
I would be emotionally devastated if anything happened to them, but I would also be out a lot of currency. I don’t collect these things just because they are nostalgic, I also do it as an investment in our future. I quote the collection to be worth one to more than one hundred thoUSnd dollars at auction, and that price will only go up. I invested in a customized Heating plus A/C and weather conditions control plan to make sure our collection stays in peak condition for multiple years to come. The reason that there are so few extravagant comic books on the market is that these items require superior air quality to sit the test of time! Comics used to be printed on cheap paper with cheap ink, because people usually threw them away. High humidity and heat, combined with inferior air quality can ruin a comic book in a matter of weeks. This is part of the reason I had the customized weather conditions control plan put in our collection room. The smart thermostat constantly reads the room for every environmental factor, and turns on or off as needed. When there is an unexpected issue (could be anything from a humidity spike to a fire) the smart thermostat sends myself and others a text alert so I can investigate for myself; My collection is perfectly secure now, because the weather conditions control protects it and the smart thermostat watches over it.
