For a pricing overview (what you can actually expect to pay) check out "the going rate" sticky thread in Auction Watch. Just because a seller lists something as "rare" doesnt make it so.
I think the best rule of thumb would be, collect what you like, and what makes you happy.
Another great rule of collecting, at least IMHO, collect what you can afford. We've seen a few members throught the years buy, buy, buy, only to turn around and sell, sell, sell.
maybe set aside 10% or so of total income for your collection.
welcome to the boards, stick around, have fun.
