Collecting and not opening something to retain value is a strange hobby. But I like the story of the lady last year who was given an iPhone as a gift, didn’t want it and forgot about it until doing cleaning or moving houses and found it unopened - and sold it for $60k

Thinking about getting a Vision Pro for this purpose, but then I think surely everyone knows about this already so they'll never be such value.

Rare? I've got two of them stuffed in the bottom of a drawer some place.

Unless somebody wrapped it so it looks like it's never been opened. Saw some scam thing on YouTube about how some unscrupulous characters do that with stuff and wrap in shrink wrap to make it look as if it has never been opened. Can make thousands. And the one can't tell.

The person who got it should open it to check they are indeed getting what they paid for. LOL
