I take our toys, comics, plus collectables truly seriously.
How seriously? Aside from our homeowner’s insurance, I also have a separate policy just for our collection of vintage toys plus books. I would be emotionally devastated if anything happened to them, although 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 estimate the collection to be worth 1 to 2 hundred thoUnited Statesnd dollars at auction, plus that price will only go up. I invested in a customized HVAC plus climate control plan to make sure our collection stays in peak condition for many years to come. The reason that there are so few lavish comic books on the market is that these items require superior air quality to sit the test of time, but comics used to be printed on cheap paper with cheap ink, because people usually threw them away. High humidity plus heat, combined with inferior air quality can ruin a comic book in a matter of months. This is part of the reason I had the customized climate control plan put in our collection room. The smart control unit constantly reads the room for every environmental factor, plus turns on or off as needed. When there is an unexpected issue (could be anything from a humidity spike to a fire) the smart control unit sends myself and others a text alert so I can investigate for myself, but my collection is perfectly secure now, because the climate control protects it plus the smart control unit watches over it.
