I think Jeff Jacob sold his set for $250K? I think the people that are in the market for a full set all at once is limited and makes more sense to sell them individually and might actually fetch a higher price!!

Wow, what an amazing collection for sale.
I'd love to just be near some of it, let alone own it! Wonderful.

The Japanese guy who owned bathing ape sold his full run a year or two ago through sothebys and didn't do half as well. I think they sold for about £60-65k which in all honesty was a very good price for the lot. Especially seeing as it included and third series bespin set engineering pilot ;)

Just curious Dan, how do you know of him? He's not a name anyone I know is familiar with so just curious if he was ever on the forums etc?

Isn't this that guy who has a shop on eBay and there was a link to his YouTube video on here a couple of weeks ago. I can't remember his name. :? :roll:

No it's not I'm thinking of someone else! Some auction though. :)

I think it is what it is, it's for sale. There's a number of reasons why he could be selling. Maybe he's had it so long he's lost the buzz and has got no love for it anymore. Maybe he's got old and needs the money for retirement etc. Maybe he wants to give his kids money for a house. Maybe he wants to travel the world. Who knows? What a stunning collection though. Something like this should be in a museum or on display somewhere for fans and collectors to see. It's almost a shame to split it up. I wonder what it will fetch.

I Know Investors or Investor collectors are generally frowned upon because they allegedly have no passion or love for Star Wars etc. I myself have been referred to as an investor by certain forum members (very welcoming) but investors are usually business orientated people who choose a more speculative style of investment. So if these people are choosing to dispose of their investment could it be that they are doing so because they think the bubble is about to burst. In Star Wars collecting terms maybe this is April 1929 and these investors know what is coming in October!

I was going to say, I recall a few of these pieces coming through BT and/or Tom, so these weren't cheap even then. Scoop tends to cross into multiple pop culture collecting categories, and Hakes does too, so the marketing and venue is sure to bring a diverse crowd of buyers. Probably moreso than we saw with Sotheby's. With the John Berk collection soon coming to market, it seems Heritage failed to represent twice, and like 'em or hate 'em, it is the venue where higher caliber stuff performs best.

More savvy vintage SW collectors will probably look at the single tier grades and bid accordingly, but it remains to be seen how those just getting their feet wet will respond to the marketing frenzy.
