In 2003, a 1954 Superman lunchbox by Adco Liberty, with a Thermos bottle and the original box, was auctioned for $11,500. Another Superman lunch box was sold for $4,649 on eBay in 2006.

Superman isn't the only valuable character: Mint-condition lunch boxes with popular characters that are now hard to find are most valuable. And if your lunchbox has some wear and tear, you might still get $50 to $100 for it.
