1. Old School Video Games

Old school video games are making a comeback! We’ve seen this with the launch of Pokemon Go. If you’ve got an original Gameboy Pokemon game, you could make a lot of money.

You don’t just need the video game to make money. Check in your binders for forgotten Pokemon cards. A single Gameboy from the 1990s sold for $900. Combine this with popular games being revived, and you can bring in a large sum of cash.

Here are the video games from 1930 making a comeback. If you have the original, don’t throw it away. It could be worth more than you think.

2. VHS Movies

Other popular revivals are old stories and movies. Over the last couple of years, there have been new movies celebrating Marvel comics, Disney classics, and many other stories.

Because of their recent popularity over the years, there has been a rise in the value of the originals. What are Disney VHS movies worth? $10? $20? Nope. Think more like hundreds and potentially thousands of dollars.

3. Old Coins

Check your pockets and miscellaneous drawer. You may be holding onto more than just small pocket change.

Certain coins have more than their intrinsic value. Errors in the minting process have resulted in unique and rare pieces. In fact, one Kansas quarter is retailed for almost $100.

A quick search under the couch cushions might be enough to help pay for groceries or more.

4. Classic Books and Comics

Classic books and comics are notoriously valuable, especially when they are in quality condition. Some popular comics right now are part of the Marvel series. Stay up to date with Marvel releases and announcements to see which comic books are will be increasing in value over the years.

5. American Girl Dolls

Nostalgia pays well. That’s why so many items on this list are involved in childhood memories. As a result, this list wouldn’t be complete without with American Girl Dolls.

Samatha is one of the dolls fetching the highest price. However, the other dolls aren’t doing so poorly either. Many of them are going for over $1000. What would you do with an extra $1000?
