Default Re: Advice on collecting

Another little bit of advice from a former museum executive director and long-time sporting art collector: Buy it because you like it, not because you think it will appreciate in value, which it likely won't. If you break even, be happy. Case in point: Ogden Pleissner sporting lithographs, which were selling for 2 and 3 thousand just a few years ago don't get their ebay asking price of 3 or 400 bucks these days. Again, buy it because you like it. Leave speculating to the pros....who have a lot of nifty stuff they can't sell.

a professional 2 cents.
