While some toys may lose value over time, some older collectibles will only gain more popularity as time goes by. Collecting old toys can be a hobby for many people, who see them as part of their childhood and take pride in remembering specific toys or movies from childhood. Some collectors even market old toys on eBay in hopes to expand their collection or make extra money, while others just want to pass down this love to the next generation.

Garbage Pail Kids cards may not have been so popular with parents, but kids loved them. Hopefully, you went against your parents’ wishes and kept buying the cards anyway, because they’re worth a lot today.

Some cards can sell for hundreds and some can sell for thousands — it all depends on which card it is when it was made, and its condition. One card sold for $300, and an entire 1985 Garbage Pail Kids Series One is going for $3,600 on eBay.
