Toys and Games

Toys are more than just fun & games. Like many collectibles, they have intrinsic value and can be suitable as a low-end alternative asset class.

Including assets such as video games, LEGO sets, and Hot Wheels, this category is pretty early in the investment world, but is likely to continue to grow.

It’s new and trading is often thin, so there’s not tons of historical data on trading strategies. But we’ll keep covering it.

I read your emails pretty religiously. Your issue on investing in tax liens is one of my absolute favorites. Great coverage for an otherwise totally grey area that seems to have little mindshare within the broader REI community.

I've recently discovered the Alts newsletter, and am enjoying it. They don't strictly focus on digital assets, which actually helps it keep it more unique in my opinion.
