    What are the most valuable Simpson Collectables?

    I'm just curious to what would be the most valuable pieces of Simpsons Merchandise you can get. Here's a few I know of:

    Animation Cels
    Actual Episode Scripts
    Pinball Machines
    Limited Edition Items from circa 1990
    Personally Signed Items
    Limited Edition Comics

    Any more people know of?

    Uh...I've got a promotional hockey puck from "Lisa on Ice" and a prototype Lisa Simpson watch from Kelloggs...


    Well, ya'know if you stay positive and forget about trivial things like "proper characterization," "Satire," and "emotional depth" watching new Simpsons episodes can be a seemingly enjoyable lie.

    "One of the keys to life is having a sense of proportion, knowing how long to sit at a restaurant after you've eaten, or how long you should go on vacation if you go to Hawaii for a month on vacation, I guarantee you that by the end you'll hate it. So it's the same with a TV show, you want to do a certain amount of it, so that when people look back on it and they love it. I could have easily done the show for one or two or three more years, but it would have changed the way people look back at it. I think I made the right decision. Because people like the show now even more than they did in the 1990s, because it didn't get worn out." -- Jerry Seinfeld

    I nearly bought a picture on eBay signed by the whole cast, got outbid at the last second though. I also know a guy who has one of those Simpsons pinball machines. I want one of those more than you can possibly imagine.

    What about Simpsons Comics #100 (US edition) signed by Bill Morrison?

    I know the comics are crap but still...

    I think all merchandise produced for the 300th episode is or will be worth something.

    I got a Homer 12 inch plush that was produced for the 300th episode. And I think the Season 6 standard box that was a mail in will be worth something soon.

    In 30 years or so WOS Series Figures (especially the first in the line), will be just as expensive as Mint 1977-8 Star Wars Figures.

    In fact, I whole lot of this stuff's value will rise tons once the show has finished.

    Matt Groening himself would probably be the most valuable Simpsons' collectable...

    There's gotta be some fans obsessive enough to kidnap him and put him in mylar packaging.... kinda like Comic Book Guy would do....
