A popular breed in the flesh, there are many collectors of antique or collectible Boston Terrier items. Many of these items were toys. Unlike other antiques (more than 100 years old), toys are generally considered antique if made before World War II. Presumably this is because the toys didn't last long. If you've had children, you understand.
Most of the antique toys in existence were created in the 1880s. Their value depends heavily on their condition and there are several formulas that can be used to grade their valve.
The grades for toys are 1) mint meaning like-new and in its original packaging; 2) very good condition may be slightly worn or won't have its original packaging; 3) good condition is intact but shows wear and 4) play-worn means it's not worth much now that kids have gotten through with it.
Other popular Boston Terrier collectibles are figurines. These can be pottery, china, wood, silver or porcelin. Their value will depend on rarity, condition, and material. Oddly, the typical artisan creation is valued more highly than an atypical creation by the same artisan.
The best advice is to collect what you love and never spend more than you can afford.
