Ever wondered if you have anything rare and valuable gathering dust in your attic? A rare video game system perhaps. A vintage board game. Or an artifact from ancient times, proudly displaying the label "Made in China" on the back. You might be sitting on a fortune, but you have no way to tell... until now!

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to just take all your items and put them in a garage sale for a low price without researching any of the rarities or values of those items. RarityGuide.com staff constantly hears horror stories on how unwary sellers sold items that were worth thousands of dollars for just a few bucks. Don't let this happen to you!

RarityGuide.com has recently opened a new forum, called "Price Check" where you can go and ask how rare your items are and how much they are worth. This forum has been rising in popularity as more and more people seek to become aware on how much their collectibles are worth, and help others in learning the same. The collectors community there is growing and everybody is always happy to help tell you how much your item is worth. And best of all, the forum is free to use! No longer do you have to pay hundreds of dollars to an appraiser just to find out your item is not worth anything. No longer do you have to spend hours searching Google and end up with no information. You now get instant access to the expertise of hundreds of collectors who will help you find out how much your items are worth.


Best of all, registration is free! The Price Check forum has quickly become the leading and the natural place where people go to find out how much their items are worth.

If you are an expert in the field, you are also welcome to join the community and help members with your expertise. In return, you can put a link in your signature to your store or business, and as you gain reputation, this will bring a lot of traffic to it.

When making a Price Check, make sure to include as many details as possible about the item, so that the community can provide an accurate estimate. Here are a few tips on what to include:

- Give a thorough description of the item.
- Does the item have any distinct labels or markings on it?
- When did you get the item (if known).
- Where did you get the item (if known).
- What is the condition of the item? Is it like new? Is it broken? Is it complete? Condition is a very important factor when determining an item's worth. Often collectibles will be worth exponentially more when in perfect condition, while different faults in the item's condition can lower its value significantly.
- Any other details that might shed light on the origin of the item.
- If possible, attach a photo of the item. As the saying goes, a photo is worth one thousand words!

So there are no more excuses. Scrounge through the attic, join the forums, and find out if you own any treasures!

The community looks forward to seeing you participate in the discussions.
