An eighty-year-old English couple discovered that they had Star Wars toys and gadgets with colossal collectible value in their garage: here’s how it went and how much they collected!
Mysteries of extreme collecting: we know well that the gadgets of Star Wars, especially those historians who straddle the seventies and Eighty, have a considerable collectible value, but one English couple of eighty he didn’t actually have any concrete idea, until their son contacted Chris Aston, of the auction house Aston’s Auctioneers in the West Midlands. Have become rich broken.
The marketing of vintage Star Wars gadgets and toys it is certainly not new, so Chris said he went to look at the objects more for scruple than for anything else: “He sent me a dozen photos, to be honest I went there just because their house was 5-6 km away away When I arrived they let me into a double garage with piles of garbage bags, and inside there was best Star Wars themed collection I’d ever seen! “
The entire “collection” (it would be better to say deposit) has earned mom, dad and son more than an investment in the brick yields: who knows if the then child had imagined that he was preparing a gift for himself and his parents. from 400,000 pounds, or more 440.000 euro at the current exchange rate! But which sets made the price of the various auctions skyrocket? Chris mentions two pieces: one Star Destroyer Commander sold for 32,500 pounds (it seems there are only two in the world boxed!) and a Jawa Palitoy for 27.280. Really vintage materials that have become a holy grail for very moneyed nerds. At the time they were nothing more than harmless toys for children, sweetly enhanced by the world of Star Wars conceived by George Lucas.
