Default Out of curiosity - do you throw rare/first runs?

So, I've come to the point where I started buying first run discs, rares, special editions etc just for the fun of it. But should I throw them or just collect them? I mean, could they potentially be worth money if left untouched?

I throw First Run CE Whippets, First Run Z Nukes, First Run Pinnacle Patriots and Rivals, and OOP Cryztal Flx Zones.

For me, the potential loss in value is not worth keeping them on the shelf. I don't buy discs as investments, I buy them to throw.

yeah, that's kinda what I'm thinking aswell. And besides, even if they become collectable, we're not talking alot of cash anyway, right?

I def throw some OOP. I also have a few collectors that I'll never throw, but they represent "backups" to throwers in my bag.

Example: 11x KC Pro Teebirds, Early PFN Pearly Orcs, Augusta Wraiths, *D & S/DS Destroyers, 11x KCP Rocs.

I'm over trying to save any discs for a potential 10 dollars in value jump. I'll just keep throwing my PFN discs and FR Rival, and find suitable replacements when need be.

I have some very good looking discs that I just can't bare to throw. Only have about 5 of those and a stack of 1X Roc3 that I gradually get rid of throughout the year.

It depends on how you define a lot of cash. But in a best case scenario you're probably looking at a net profit in the tens of dollars. But most first runs will gain little to no value at all, so it's a bit of a guessing game.

I currently own three discs that I'm reluctant to throw. A Star Krait Pumpkin Edition, a Limited Edition Kastaplast Kaxe with Birgitta Lagerholm, and a Prodigy F5 Ragna Bydge signature edition. I don't own any regular discs of those molds though, so I kinda want to throw them :P

I carry:
FR S-PDs
CFR PDs
FR Pinnacle Patriots
FR Icon Gauges
Glo Z Zones
Champ Polecats
G9i Wizards

Of course I bought them first hand so they weren't anything more than regular price.

throwing a disc which is costly/not easy to replace is dumb but a lot of people do it-- myself included.

"collecting" discs IMO is more like playing the penny stock market than actual collecting or investing.
