Take the second definition of elite - " a group or class of people seen as having the most power and influence in a society, especially on account of their wealth or privilege."

To me, "elite" collectors are collectors who mingle with the elitist people of blue chip galleries and auction houses - the ones having the most influence in the market - and they do solely for interest.

A guy who buy from blue chip galleries/auction houses becase he can afford it and does it without mingling with the all world of blue chip galleries and not caring much about the trickeries, hocus pocus, return on investment, etc. is not an elite collector.
Crucifixion? Good. Out of the door, line on the left, one cross each.

I hear what you're saying, but I just don't see anything "elite" related to someone who collects stuff.  There is zero power, zero influence, just privilege, and privilege alone doesn't make you an elite, at least in my view.

Except I wouldn't dare putting my ugly mug there, but you are a beautiful man with those mesmerizing eyes and I for one can't stop looking at it.

Oh my... It's all about priorities.  I had so many things I wanted to buy at HA tonight, and then I got so much into the Celtics/Heat game that I COMPLETELY FORGOT until now.

Go Warriors!!!  And so glad the Heat lost.

So so stupid!

Like so many of us, I own all of these posters and I don't think any of them would fetch more than $50.  And that's a lot.

Ridiculous.

Maybe from HA hahaha...  Those prices are out of control.

I can't win anything there, too many deep pockets.  I was hoping to put my bid on a few items tonite, but forget about it, I just can't win.
