Collecting today may be the single most significant hobby in the world. According to a 2003 report published by United Marketing of Pennsylvania, entitled, “Why People Buy Collectibles: Analysis of collector behavior and their drive to collect,” collecting as a pastime continues to grow rapidly as more Baby Boomers, reaching their prime spending years, participate. eBay’s consistent growth has contributed to this trend. Of 102 million households in the US, more than 40% indicate that a member of their household collects a collectible item.
