Bailey GT Students Put Collectibles To The Test

Bailey Intermediate students Tony Ford, Dude Perry, and Ricardo Mejia had fun going through the Fad or Fortune GT Gallery. The Lava Lamp presentation included small tubes resembling the popular decorative lamps of the late 1970s.

Do you remember Cabbage Patch Dolls, Mood Rings, Pet Rocks, and Beanie Babies?  What about first-edition comic books, the two-dollar bill, Babe Ruth baseball cards, and gold?  How much would you pay for such items?  Would you find them free at garage sales? Are they gaining value?  How would you categorize them: Fad or Fortune?

          The Gifted and Talented students at Bailey Intermediate researched collectibles and presented their findings in a G.T. Gallery on Thursday.  Their presentations focused on how the collectibles retained, lost, or gain value, which helped them determine if they were fad or fortune.
