Wouldn't the best way be to buy more posters as investments? :P


Maybe I can get them to short sell me posters :)

Sell protection on the posters, like a synthetic insurance product.

Here's an example in layman's terms: I think that the price of my Stout Star Wars Set is going to go down in the future, and I want to buy protection against that scenario. You think I'm crazy, and you're happy to take my money, so you say that if the average goes down x% over a set period of time, you have to pay me y amount for an upfront cost paid to you of z. If it goes down, you pay me, if it does not (or goes up in fact), you get to keep the upfront cost. Boom.

The synthetic Mondo market is going to be huge. :lights cigar with hundred dollar bill:


Finn, this could work. I work with derivatives and swaps for a Wall Street bank and I think we should securitize these Mondos - I'll get crackin' on it. Might not be enough coin involved in this market to make it fly - we just need to get a few hedge fund managers chasing Mondo drops instead of Monets and Renoirs and we'll be golden. I think we need some Mondo options and futures contracts, too. Oh, the possibilities...

If we have hedge fund managers chasing Mondo drops, any concerns about the market crashing will evaporate. They would be buying collections at a time instead of picking off posters one by one.

Everybody back off. This is mine and Finn's. Y'all, of course, are more than welcome to be initial investors. Remember, the first group of investors in a ponzi scheme always make out really well.

Ok - I'd like to get in on the ground floor and I can be a henchman that recruits others. This could be bigger than Madoff if we play our cards right.

That's the kind of can-do attitude we're looking for.

I brought them back when I left Denver. They weren't on the front porch?

Somebody on here sells the whole set of 23 TS/KT exhibition prints for $3K - at only $130/poster I think it's a good place to start!

Also, I would hereby like to apply for a position of first investor/market analyst/junior recruiter in the ponzi scheme. I watched a news bulletin on Bitcoins yesterday so I think I qualify.

It actually sold late last night as I was heading to bed. It has a new home in Hawaii, I only wish I could fit in the tube and go with it...
