Charlie Sheen

Now, let's talk about Charlie Sheen. Back in the day, he had a super rare Honus Wagner T206 card, which is basically the holy grail of baseball cards. Unfortunately, it was stolen by some sneaky restaurant workers. But don't worry, the FBI got it back and Sheen eventually sold it for a pretty penny.

 

Snoop Dogg

Someone you may not have expected to see on this list, we have Snoop Dogg, who traded in his sweet ride for a Kobe Bryant rookie card. The card's value has only gone up since he made the swap, so it looks like Snoop made a smart investment.
