Just window shopping for me at these signature auctions.

Lovely pick ups, Antoine and T. Thanks for sharing.

I had a few I was watching but they all went higher than I was willing to pay. There were a few WTF moments though. Still not sure what to think about this one, Raiders 1sh went for $2160. Apparently one in March went for $2,760 as well.

80s are on fire.  I think a Goonies went for $2k + as well, and not even the road map style.  Just the reg.  It’s so ridiculous.

Also, in the "what's wrong with people" category, I bought this guy at Emovie 2 weeks ago, folded and in "very good" condition, for $3,600, which I thought was a stretch, but I wanted it.  Two weeks later, a linenbacked version sells at HA for $7,800. 

That's a $4,200 linenbacking job.  WTF!!!

Question for anyone-

I was looking at Heritage’s schedule for this year, and I don’t see a summer signature auction on the calendar. They do have a “spring showcase” and a “silent film poster” auction coming up. Are things changing at HA?

Omg, lots of deep pockets at Bruce’s auction today.  Good for him.  The market seems to grow and things get more expensive by the day.  It’s so hard to win anything nowadays.

I feel the same in terms of finding it harder to win things at a price I'm happy with - I thought perhaps I was just being cheap, so good to hear others think this too! Perhaps I'm bidding pre-inflation prices...

You know, it's funny, I took a gigantic hit on the stock market since the beginning of year, inflation, Ukraine and all, and I'm being much more cautious with my purchases, but I feel like I'm alone.  I see prices skyrocket on things that were a quarter of the price just 10 years earlier and I'm scratching my head.  I mean, people seem to have a lot of disposable income, which is good I guess, but it doesn't seem to follow the realities of the market and the world at large.

Thierry, I think the rise of collectibles (not only movie posters, but also comics and trading cards) these days is a direct result of the stock market tanking.  I see the exact same phenomenon with fine art auctions, where prices have exploded since the beginning of the pandemic.  A lot of people who used to invest their disposable income in stocks when the market was going strong have now turned to other forms of investment, from real estate to art and collectibles, because those currently offer better short-term returns.  It's not like there are a lot of different options when it comes to parking one's money.

I would agree with that, Antoine, but prices started going up a while back.  For sure more so now, but I'd say 5-6 years ago.  Probably at the beginning of Trump when people realized the world might be on its last leg haha.

They are last to jump on the bandwagon.
Goldin got over $34K for a Star Wars VHS back in February (cheap now?) https://goldin.co/item/1984-star-wars-first-print-sealed-vhs-tape-igs-mint-8-5-nm-7-5oeq5n?
and the market has been red-hot since then with several auction houses offering an assortment of items.
Have heard of a few private six-figure transactions, but we will see if this holds in the wake of the crypto-crash.
