Some people see at "just another assett class"....

just a demonstration of how dark and audacious this current market is, too much money to be made "Poor", "pure" collectors like many of us can only watch and curse.

I wonder if some of these listings are just pranks…

at least in those cases where an insanely high number is listed. In such cases the seller must know that no one will buy, not at this point in the game.

They could be baits or they could be someone who's confident enough they will get them....from ADs, sales or "customers, aka flippers" working together...

then sell to those who have the big $$ and loves bragging rights on social media. I know this sounds like serious allegations but we heard those stories so nothing new. The current allocation games that is going on with many brands really helps secondary ...

Hope that mechanism works!

So sad. Any of us would love to have that beast, and keep it .

Bonkers price.

Pretty sure the market-clearing price will be far lower in the next 3-6 months. But I guess this discussion is verboten...

The whole situation is really sad

I think I’m done with this this hobby, and will take up knitting or basket weaving instead.
