Antiques Roadshow, my ass

Christies believe the machine will sell for between £100,000 and £150,000.

It cost $666.66 when it was bought in 1976.

I certainly can understand your disbelief but really there are a lot of people out there with more money than they know what to do with. And these antique dealers are experts at finding those people & convincing them to part with their money.

Who would ever think that a hockey card that was once a part of a pack of five for 20 cents would fetch $1000?

Then there's the green, dusty Chinese vase in England that sold for $75 million Canadian. Apparently the vase will be going back home - to a Chinese billionaire.

Have to agree with Anon, people with the money will buy it just for no other reason than to say "I have one"

A fool and his money are soon parted as my old granny used to say.

as incomprehensible as i find it... i guess any object is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it.
