Will it appreciate? Hard to say... But then, several quite wealthy individuals with a lot of disposable income and a burning desire to own an actual TOS prop may have been the cause of the bid fever on this one, far beyond what it could resell for later on.
Agreed. I'd guess that this buyer got in at the top, and wealthy TOS fans are now aging out of their acquistional years.
That, on a smaller financial scale, is why I thought the TOS soundtrack collection would never come out. I was a little early on that call and happily bought the box.
