Collectibles We Buy


Not ready to sell, but still need to know the value of your collectible items? Back to the Past Collectibles can help!


There are many reasons why you need to understand the value of the items in your family’s possession:

  • Estate and Probate – When looking for equitable outcomes for descendants when the time comes to distribute items, it is vital to know what those items are worth. One “pile of stuff” can have a vastly different value than the next similar looking “pile of stuff.”
  • Financial Planning – Advisors often ask about real estate, stock investments, bank accounts, and maybe coins or original art, but they stop there! It has not been unusual, in our experience, to find comic book, toys, and movie materials collections that rival or surpass the value of the house in which they are stored. Get the full picture of net worth by including the collectible items in the plan!
  • Insurance Protection – Most insurance companies will need an expert evaluation to ensure the collection is properly backed by the right plan. Based on the nature of the policy, sometimes it is acceptable to ballpark the total value but in other cases it requires a line-by-line detailed review.
  • Planning for Downsizing – What items may one day need to be sold vs. donated or in the worst case just disposed of? An orderly process that has time to come to proper fruition will have a significantly better outcome than last-minute decisions and short deadlines.
