What is the most rare/expensive GTA collectors item?

Recommended Posts

Robinism

I was on the hunt for the BradyGames GTA III stratedy guide the other day, and the dude working at the local video game store told me that it was pretty rare to find one in stores, but easy to find used copies at eBay etc. He also told me that the GTA: Vice City Soundtrack CD box set has become pretty rare and expensive over the years.

It got me thinking; What do you guys believe to be the most rare/expensive GTA collectors item? I mean, out of all GTA related products such as Special Edition versions of the game, merchandise and so on. Any ideas?

Probably the hats, or the one f*cking BMX bike I think they did for the release of San Andreas. I'd love to get a Los Santos hat though, be legit.

The boxed set might be rare, but the individual CDs aren't so rare as they aren't up for ridiculous prices online. I think the San Andreas soundtrack CD boxed set has that one beat. I might look into getting it, mostly for collecting and because I don't want to track down every song for my San Andreas playlist.

 

What about the items that came with the IV collector's edition set? Like the duffel bag and stuff.

Bragging aside, most stuff for III is rare, at least the collectible stuff that first came out for it along with the ones for VC. III's soundtrack sampler & VC's cocaine mirror are like hen's teeth.

I remember during V's development some guy here went to rockstar north's headquarters and got his picture taken and in the background there was a bald guy. We all thought it was Sam or Dan whichevers the bald one

Dan's the bald one.
I think he's bald because he wants his head to look like a penis.

I'm guessing the most rare things are the car they gave away before V, the BMX, and those freaking sweet Claude dolls.

I wanna add one to the list. I know it was released just a few months ago, but they released 1,000 of GTAV golf clubs. Those gotta be pretty rare, right?

I still have one of those little GTA V Keychains from 2012. I think it's the Del Perro Pier one. My brother also owns the Vice City and San Andreas box sets (though I wish the SA one had more songs from each station as well as an SF-UR CD :/)

I have a GTA III strategy guide. The binding on it sucks though, so like 2 of the pages are no longer attached. They're still in the book however.

Even though the topic itself is a bit old an forgotten by now, here's my two cents on the given matter.

 

There are indeed some items and memorabilia that is being considered " rare " even though it is not quite the case, like aforementioned BradyGames guide of GTA III. Why? You definitely won't be able to buy one in your regular gaming store anymore, but there are literally dozens of similar GTA guides available to purchase on Ebay or Amazon, or similar places, maybe not all of the time, but still, these were printed by the thousands at least, and you'll probably see someone selling it on Ebay saying "rare GTA guide", yeah, it is somewhat rare to find in mint or brand new condition, it is collectible, but it is most definitely a product of mass production.

Same could be said for first print releases of some older GTA games, especially PS1/PS2 releases, or so called " Black Labels" (named that way because of the PS NTSC packaging in the USA ). These were released by the millions, but after a decade or even more it's pretty rare to find some of the copies in brand new unopened condition, hence their higher worth.

 

On the other hand, there are numerous items, that are in some sense pretty cool and "unique", like let's say, CJ's Four Dragons loyalty casino card, that was a pre-order bonus that came with the copy of GTA SA in Australia handed by the Electronic Boutique game store. How many copies were pre ordered in Australia back in 2004, only in EB Games store? I have no idea, but we can talk in thousands again. It is really hard to find it on e-commerce sites like Ebay and I can speak from experience, that after years of searching I've managed to buy one off the Ebay for 50 bucks and as a bonus I've also received a GTA SA matches, which is nice.

 

Moving along, there are certain memorabilia items classified by Rockstar Games themselves as a pretty valuable and highly collectible, like GTA Kubrick - a block-styled figures similar to Legos. There's only a certain well known number of these. GTA III, GTA VC and GTA SA have exactly 3000 packs of these each. Probably there are even more since they ( R* ) released more of these during GTA III and GTA VC anniversary in the form of Anniversary Editions - which have different packaging compared to originals.

Similar item would be, for example, GTA V Golf Club released only in 1000 specimens. Highly collectible and you can find few of these floating around on e-commerce sites for around 300 USD. I'm not sure what was its actuall price while it was still in stock in Rockstar's Warehouse, but it was probably more affordable back then.

 

There are bunch of memorabilia that somewhat falls in-between few of these categories and just to name a few; GTA IV Statue of Happiness, GTA IV baseball bat, SA casino poker chips and card decks, VC cocaine mirror, various licence plates, beer bottles and so on (one of my favorites, which I have no idea about, the only thing I know is that it exist and I've seen one is GTA SA Poker Briefcase with two card deck, dices and bunch of casino chips)...

 

Now, there are only a few items that really deserve a status of " unique " or extremely rare. Most of them were released during some of Rockstar's organized events or special occasions through out all these years. Most of them counted in single digit and mainly could've been won by participating in some prize contest or similar. Two in particular comes to my mind:

GTA VC Neon Sign and of course, GTA V Banshee Bravado real life car.

Neon Sign was a part of Bike Stunt Contest during 2003 I think I remember googling that stuff I found the guy selling it few years later after he won that thing. Just recently I stumbled upon someone selling it on Ebay for 3000 $, not that long ago, maybe couple of months back. I'm not sure but it could be two of these, not just one.

Banshee was also part of the R sweepstakes giveaway right before the release of GTA V for the first time. Made by West Cost Customs, it really is one of a kind. I think I remember watching it go for about 70 or 80 thousand dollars on Ebay.

Well, valuable and pretty sought after, yes, but not exactly rare. It was among some of the first promo items Rockstar rolled out in order to spice up things before the release of GTA V back in 2012, if not the very first one I think. Comes in set of 5 different viewfinders, each having different color and different image inside. Depending on the condition, individually it can cost up to 15 USD on Ebay, but having them all in well preserved packaging, the price can go up to 70 dollars. I think there's one set on Ebay right now.

Actually, if anyone is interested in seeing something in particular and related to various GTA merchandise, promos and all other GTA memorabilia, you don't have to look any further away from GTAForums. There's a topic here containing images of all that sweet stuff. It's not that I'm an expert, but feel free to ask me here about anything interesting you might see there. :monocle:

Of course, nothing beats googling, but still. :cool:

Don't y'all find interesting how the "Vice City Soundtrack Greatest Hits" CD has became much rarer and sometimes even higher-priced than the actual 7-CDs Boxset ? Wonder why it's like that ... 🤔
