Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles Figures
In 1984, a new self-published comic book called “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” sold for $1.50 a copy. Almost 30 years later, that single-issue black-and-white comic is worth more than 2000 times its cover price, in part because only 3250 copies were printed. TMNT toys, on the other hand, were produced in mass quantity, but many of them have appreciated in value to incredible amounts. At US$1200, a mint-condition Scratch the Cat, one of the last action figures from the original toy line, will fetch you the most money. Cowabunga, indeed!
