Wow, thanks, I'd seen some of these, but this is very cool. The only comments at the link is sad, that they think only a Museum is the place for great art. As if a individual shouldn't own expensive art works. Obviously they haven't seen people who LOAN their art to museums for us to appreciate. If it were not for the individual collectors out there, much of the best art would not have been preserved or survived. NOT by State support, but by individual support is Art really appreciated.

I love the reaction of the woman who brought in the Jade collection when she heard 750K to 1M. “Damn”

The late Bill Lears’ 8-track might be worth something...
