Investing in Harry Potter memorabilia

Today is Rupert Grint’s (better known to many as Harry Potter’s red haired companion Ron Weasley) birthday. The freshly turned 23 year old has become a global celebrity due the success of the Harry Potter series of films. But is his memorabilia, and items related to other stars of the films, worth investing in?

Signed photographs of Grint are selling for around the £200 mark whereas Emma Watson’s can fetch up to £400 and Daniel Radcliffe’s up to £700.

But what other memorabilia related to the stars has been available on the market? Well, truth be told, not a lot.

Memorabilia related to the Harry Potter films (and the books) is selling for more than memorabilia related to the cast.

You might have seen a few weeks ago I chose my top 5 Harry Potter collectibles. The list included Gary Oldman’s Sirius Black costume (which sold for £15,600), a globe prop from The Philosopher’s stone (£17,750) and JK Rowling’s writing chair (£19,555).

So my advice for those interested in purchasing Harry Potter memorabilia would be to go with items related to the films, or the books and not items relating to the actors themselves.
