My best toy investment ever
Star Trek Captain Jean Luc Picard Tapestry Action Figure
According to Amazon there is "1 used & new available from $999.99"
This is bar none the best toy investment I ever made. I picked this up in a Toys R Us in Pensacola back in the early 1990s. I remember that I was looking for something else (probably Micro Machines) and I saw this hanging on the peg. Mind you I had just read about this rare figure in Action Figure News and Toy Review and I was astonished to see it sitting on the pegs - how could this escape the eyes of an employee? Anyway, it cost me about $4 and now fetches a grand. Woo-hoo! If only all the stuff I've purchased over the years would appreciate this nicely. I'm thinking that it's a once in a lifetime find.
