When I was a kid (by "kid" I mean age o' 5 to 10-years-old), I had two lunch boxes: a Star Wars box that was bedecked with stickers from packs of red, yellow and blue Star Wars cards; and a National Football League box that featured 70s-style facemasks and a list of Super Bowl champions.
While I still have my Star Wars lunch box, I pulled all the stickers off and gave it a good cleaning years ago. Maybe I'll get some bucks for my box one of these days.
Check this out:
"A 1954 Superman lunchbox broke records when it sold for a whopping $11,500 in auction. Though most vintage boxes won't score a sliver of that price, many good-condition carriers still hold their weight in worth. Here's a countdown of classic lunchboxes' blue book value. Who knows? You might have some cold hard cash collecting dust in your attic!"
