If you’re hoping to collect a “complete set” of Nascar diecast cars, you probably expect it to cost you somewhere in the area of an arm and a leg, and probably get you somewhere for the rest of your life. to complete the collection.
Well, that could be what happens, unless you want to be realistic about it.
A “complete set” of Nascar diecast cars is really for you to define. What would you consider a complete collection? Every single Nascar diecast ever produced? Forget it! On the other hand, maybe you’re just behind all the Daytona 500 winners, or maybe you want the full lineup of every Dale Earnhardt diecast ever produced. That’s a bit more like it.
The trick to getting a collection like this is pretty simple: buy a lot of cars. Well yes, of course, but what we mean by this is that you should look for any opportunity to buy complete sets of cars at once.
Suppose you are browsing eBay and you find someone who sells that rare piece you were looking for, but is selling it on a lot with about five or six more cars. Go ahead and bid on it. When your package arrives, take the Nascar die-cast cars that you are not interested in keeping and sell them. Simple as that.
If you are an economic genius, you can even turn your collection into an economically self-sufficient hobby with the economic investment of a single purchase. Let’s say you buy a lot of discounted cars, resell each one you don’t want individually, and there you have it, you’ve made enough cash to buy another lot. Keep doing that every time you see a lot with a missing part, and sooner or later you’ll have a complete set at little or no cost to you. Heck, you could even make a profit.
In fact, this is how many collectors get started: in retail. Comic books, for example. Someone who runs a bookstore or comic book store can choose from trash, so they are left with a copy of anything that may be valuable one day, and in no time has an impressive collection as a by-product of running a business. successful business. .
Of course, this is just a collection method. The fun of being a collector is doing it your way. Maybe you prefer to buy each car individually, or maybe you just want to browse hobby shops and flea markets and see what catches your eye. It’s your collection and it’s your dime, so collect however you like.
