The Obama Collectibles Craze

Okay, we've just elected our first African-American President of the United States. And while that in itself may be a big thing, what's going to be even bigger is what's in it for collectors. Yes, Obama items are already going for a pretty penny online, especially at Ebay.

In this series of articles, I'm going to alert you to some of the things to look out for to see if you can get your hands on them. They will be worth a lot of money as time goes by.

Right now, what you want to get your hands on are any newspapers with Obama in them, especially if they are newspapers announcing that he won the election. These papers are selling for 5 to 10 times their cost right now on Ebay and as time goes on, they are going to be selling for even more. So get your hands on as many of these as you can.

Over the next few weeks, months or whatever, I'm going to stay on the lookout for anything that you might be able to turn into a profit related to Obama. Right now, with the elections just days behind us, newspapers are big. So grab as many as you can.
