In the world of Antique and Collectibles, when someone dies we often make more money than we would have had they lived. I call this the ugly side of the business. Last week when music icon Prince died, collectors around the globe went into a tizzy. As of today, there were 2,161 listings on eBay for albums, 11,014 for t-shirts, and 649 poster listings. One vendor sold 115 posters at $15 a pop that’s $1725. Is this crazy, smart or both? Does Karma even factor into the equation? Here’s another example from a couple of years ago; remember when Ryan Dunn from Jackass fame died in a car accident? A friend of mine sold the local newspaper from the morning after for $200 on eBay the very next day.
