Remember Yesteryear with Collectible Items on Texarkana Craigslist

We all seem to have something that we collect because it reminds us of treasured memories from yesteryear. Although some folks collect a bit too much (thus there's a place for the A&E television show Hoarders), sometimes people go through their stuff, clean out their closets and purge (see Style TV's Clean House). When they do, an increasing number of them either sell their recently rediscovered goods on eBay or Craigslist. And as the saying goes, one person's junk is another's treasure! So look at the collectibles we found on “the list” here in the Texarkana area.


Texaco Team Glasses
Craigslist
 

Growing up, every time I traveled with my family, my dad collected shot glasses. He's got them from nearly every state in the union, and each one is linked to a special memory from a different place. In 1994, Texaco released a series of baseball team shot glasses that have since become a collector's item listed on numerous sites. On this Craigslist ad, the seller is selling seven glasses for $70.

 
Beatles Revolver vinyl album LP
Craigslist
 

Depending on your age, you may or may not have had actual records. You remember, they were those big vinyl discs that appeared long before eight-track tapes, cassettes, compact discs and digital downloads. DJs actually used to spin them on turntables and we'd dance along despite the underlying crackle that accompanied our tunes. But the extra noise never seemed to bother us when we were grooving with the likes of Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Elvis or even the Beatles. Now you can relive those memories again by purchasing previously-owned LPs like this one of the Beatles' "Revolver" album.

 
Coca-Cola Chest circa 1950
Craigslist
 

Ever since Coca-Cola debuted in Atlanta in 1886, folks have clamored for its delicious, ice-cold refreshment. When it originally came out, it could only be found at an old-fashioned soda fountain like the one you may remember being in different pharmacies around the country. But then the company started distributing it in glass bottles for a nickle, selling "Coke" in large coolers like the one pictured here from the 1950s, which is now selling on Craigslist for $500.

 
Comic Books
Craigslist
 

Who of us didn't love comic books as a kid? I know my mom still regrets getting rid of all her original Superman comics when she a teenager. Back then she paid a dime for each copy. When I came up, I seem to remember paying around 75 cents per issue, but I always thought they were worth the money. Anyone who still has those colorful adventures of Spider-Man, Flash, Captain America and the X-Men knows what treasures those books are and likely won't part with them freely. For those of you who don't know, these childhood (okay, some adults are just as passionate about their comics) books continue to increase in value, as can be seen here by the Archie comics from the 60s and 70s that are selling for $600 in Dekalb!

 
Scottie Pippin jersey
Craigslist
 

While I'm not a sports fan, it does seem like most of my friends are. One of my best friends in Ohio is one of the most avid sports enthusiasts I've come across, watching every game she can, regardless of the sport. So I'm sure she'd love to get her hands on some sports memorabilia like this jersey from the Chicago Bulls small forward, selling for only $750!
