Phillys "smart buy" investment artwork

268 posts in this topic

Here is Phillys "smart buy" he bragged about after I pointed out I bought a George Rodrigue very limited edition poster for $750. A quick search shows one selling at auction a few months ago for $6k. This was his response!

here's a painting i bought in cambodia from a local artisan for $25. it's massive, almost five feet wide, and took actual talent to paint, and it looks good in my office and didn't cost me 5-6k to buy

in other words it was a smart buy

So lets see, paid $25, hauled back halfway across globe. Can sell for $30 and net $25.40 after ebay and paypal fees with current free listing special.

GEE, WHAT A SUPER SMART BUY, $.40 cents possible profit and you only have to haul across globe, take picture, list for sale, wrap up, ship out. Wow did I get shut down with my laughable couple thousands in appreciation from my dumb purchase.

It's a smart buy because he likes it.  It's also a smart buy because he isn't a frivolous spending idiot like you so $25 is a good deal for buying art you like.

 

You decorate your house based on how much something costs.

Much like your rapidly-depreciating Bentley, he bought something to use, not to resell.

I never used my rapidly depreciating Bentley in an economic appreciation argument, the "smart buy" was his response on an art appreciation/ investment argument where he is supposed to be showing the difference between my dumb buy and smart buy! Go read!

Who cares, that wasn't the reason it was posted, he used it as an example of his "smart buy" to refute my dumb purchase. So don't change the context he posted it in trying to save him from looking stupid.

    • Between Hurd and Dobbs Tennessee had the two most overrated recruits in college football. Kamara was so much better than Hurd
    • He's got the height at 6'4". But I'm looking at arm length and wingspan and looking at the other DEs we've have targeted recently (Hardy, Alexander, Horton, Ealy, Miley, Edwards, Delaire). Delaire is the only one under 34" arms and he seems more like a pass rush specialist. 
    • I see what your saying and I hope that's not the case. I personally don't see KB as a player that's going to lead the league in catches or yards. I see him not as the stereotypical receiver but as a player that can be known as the one who makes the really tough, clutch catches. The dangerous red zone target that a defense has to key on but will still be deficult to stop. The guy that makes the hard fought 1st down catch on 3rd and long when we really need it late in the game. Dependable.  I believe he has the potential to be that guy. I hope at least.
