Sale Of Royal Memorabilia Up 12491%

According to eBay, sale of Royal memorabilia, in conjunction with the royal wedding of the century between Prince William and Catherine Middleton on 29th April, 2011, as expected, shot up, by 12,491% year-on-year.

Normally, although there are royal memorabilia collectors, sales are slack and prices are never too high. And this time, even though there are collectors of Prince William and Kate Middleton royal wedding memorabilia, collectors believe that these souvenirs would not be able to fetch a high price in the future, following the trend of past royal memorabilia.

This means that such souvenirs are good as keepsakes but not as investment. I wonder if this trend would change with Prince William souvenirs. If so, I too would like to pick up an item or two!
