The 10 Most Valuable Items We’ve Seen So Far on Collector’s Call


For a collector, the “value” of an object can be very subjective. Something that seems completely normal to you or me can be of immeasurable value to them because it was the first collection item they received, or because it was given to them by someone very special.

We can’t start classifying this sort of value, so we’re making this list based on something a little easier to judge: dollar value. Over the past two seasons, our experts have rated countless items, sometimes to disappointment…or excitement. Here are the ten most valuable items we’ve seen so far!

Are we going to break the record? We will have to see with season three of The Collector’s Call, from Sunday March 27 at 6:30 p.m. | 5:30!
