As kids it seems that we all go through a collecting phase, whether it is butterflies caught during the summer or that stamp collection that your grandmother generously donated to every year on your birthday. As adults, many people continue to collect various items, some for the love of the item, for the challenge of finding that rare gem, and others, in the hopes of maybe making a profit. Regardless whether your penchant is for vinyl records or vintage wood cutting boards, collecting is a passion.
Collectibles are items that are manufactured with the goal of people buying them to collect. Such items include limited edition Christmas items or hockey cards.

Certain items that are originally manufactured for one purpose can actually become so popular that they will eventually be marketed as collectibles (e.g.: Toy Story figurines).

Such collector items include coins or stamps with misprinted information that have been inadvertently released to the public.
