I found these super cool model airplanes at Goodwill the other day. They're still in the box with all the packaging. They were pretty cheap so I thought they'd made good stocking stuffers for Mo since he loves military stuff.
Out of curiosity I looked them up online and it turns out that these things are expensive. They are from "Collection Armour" by the Franklin Mint.
I found this one that is listed for $98.00 on eBay:
And this one on a airplane site for $139.00:
I'm not really interested in collecting airplanes and I want Mo to play with them without worrying about them. But what if they turn out to be worth something someday? I know it's better if you have the box.
So.... should I keep the boxes and stryofoam or is this the kind of thing that really doesn't ever increase in value so the packaging won't matter?
