Did you hang onto your old iPod? It could be worth a tidy sum of cash

NICE.

If you're a hoarder and kept your old iPod even though you don't use it anymore, chances are it's worth a pretty penny.

According to The Guardian, "vintage iPods" are now collector items and are selling for staggering figures on Ebay and similar sites.

On example is a first generation iPod mini, Silver, 4GB, and just wait for the current selling price, only $2,499.99 and now I'm counting down the minutes until I can go home and try to find mine.

Prices vary and if you search this topic, you'll find some selling for above $10,000. The higher prices usually apply to the unopened models but still, there's no harm in having a look for your old iPod.

Los Angeles-based memorabilia seller Hermie Brieto says the popularity of Apple could be due to the fact that it's been "around for a while".

"A lot of people, product-wise, they like Apple very much. I guess the collectability is because of Steve Jobs, and the history of Apple" continued Brieto.

Interesting...
