    Any idea of what that's worth?

    I paid $35 for it about 8 years ago, to me its worth millions.

    I've got other cards that are probably worth more but that one is just awesome.

    I hear ya. The coolness factor of such a card is definitely not a purchasable commodity.

    Definitely, I found it on a whim and was squealing like a girl.

    I guess my entire collection is worth around $2k-5K if they were sold individually at full price.
    Graded probably a lot more.

    With a brief explanation of your investments.

    Just a general survey and hopefully advice for those who don't know how and what to invest in.
    For the past few years I've mostly been investing in my student debt. Now that that's down to an acceptable level, I'm going to invest more in stocks. Probably about 1/2 American stocks, and 1/2 international stocks. I'll also probably invest in bonds as a hedge, but the US bond market seems extremely bubbly right now so my investments in that area will be minimal until the bubble bursts.

    For me, it's going to be funds stock and spread it all out. Right now, my money is paying for college, and stuff like that. I'm also going to buy gold, and stuff like that.

    Don't forget REITS... real estate is cheap right now if cash isn't a problem.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I've got a few hundred dollars in my 401(k), which just recently gained back the value it lost in 2007-2008.

    I loaned about half my inheritance to my business partners in hopes of getting our company off the ground. It's interest free, but I'm planning on getting that money back-- and eventually seeing a profit from the business itself.

    Read The Intelligent Investor by Ben Graham, especially Chapter 8.
    Read Buffett, The Making of an American Capitalist by Roger Lowenstein.

    "Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful."
    Now's the time to be greedy. Buy what you understand.

    Here is the audio version of the The Intelligent Investor:

    Cheers.
