When I was a kid, I remember Jim Beam decanters used to be collectors' items.  There were price lists for various commemorative bottles.  My mother bought a Space Needle bottle at the Seattle World's Fair, and believed that one day it would be worth quite a bit.

Turns out they're not worth much at all.

A word to the wise, if it's made as a "collectable," it isn't.

Buy it because you like it, not because of any possible future value.
