The collectible is an item worth more because of its rarity or demand. It is a valuable object that could fall into any one of the three categories listed above. Collectibles are not items that were mass-produced, as many people may think. Just because a group or individual collects a type of product does not make it a collectible, by definition. For example, collecting baseball cards is a common pastime. Baseball cards themselves are not collectibles. The T206 Honus Wagner baseball card, however, is a collectible. This is because the American Tobacco Company produced only a few copies in 1909 and it’s very hard to track them down today. Age and rarity make that card a collectible.
