Worth more than $100,000!

The good folks at Hemmings have been following the auction of a famous collection of toys (formerly owned by Donald Kaufman, a co-founder of K-B Toys) including a lot of rare, obscure, and generally boring looking toy cars. But here’s the good part – the toy cars brought $4.2 million. That’s 2.8 Bugatti Veyron 16.4’s!

Not worth a damn thing.

If you have any inkling that a great-grandparent stashed some old toys in an attic, it might be worth a weekend of cheek pinching to find ‘em. The highest seller, a German 1909 Marklin Fidelitas “clown caravan,” was estimated to bring around $30,000 … but when the hammer came down, it went for $103,500! Of course, we don’t mean to suggest that the loads of Hot Wheels with cockeyed axles you have stuffed in a box are worth anything. But look, the economy is in the crapper and we’re getting record toy car prices, so take a look!
