Heritage Auction Results: The Phaser That Left All Others In The Dust(buster)
In the end, I don’t think we are totally surprised to be seeing these sort of astonishing, astronomical prices as it’s been pretty consistent over the last few years. Some of us know of big-time collectors with deep pockets that are the likely new owners of these once affordable pieces, but some now wonder if investors are now turning to these auctions to keep them as short (or long) term investments over uncertain stocks, crypto, etc. The market clearly shows the return on investment is there, so we may be entering a new era where the mega rich can afford to spend thousands of dollars on a combadge and the everyday collector is left to hunt for that illusive bargain.
