You love the bikes, toys, and records of your childhood, but Jimmy Rhoades says they could have more than sentimental value. Your toy chest could be a treasure chest! Here are collectibles to dust off from three retro decades.
The bike you rode 'til the streetlights came on? It's worth more than you think. The Schwinns from the '70s and back are very valuable. These classic bikes cost $99.95 brand new, but are fetching up to $1,700 for a classic.
He-Man, Cabbage Patch dolls, Care Bears... The '80s were all about the toys. The ones that have done well pick up on the coattails of the movies that have been made about that particular character, or that particular show, or that particular toy. Transformers toys from the 1980s are listed on eBay right now for hundreds of dollars.
