Who didn't want a shiny police badge when they were a kid? Its five or six-pointed star meant you had extreme authority over your posse. Law enforcement memorabilia collecting is a growing national and international pastime. Cross collectibles, such as tin police motorcycles and police cars, popular with both police and toy collectors, can bring upwards of several thousand dollars. Photographs, comic books, tools, and even wanted posters are also highly collectible. The most highly sought after items, however, are the police badges and patches. They can fetch anywhere from a dollar to hundreds of dollars for rare and desirable ones. Put your detective skills to work and join the long arm of the law collectors this weekend.  LEARN MORE
