Gretzky Cup Clinching Stick Auction

Post image 1

Found this interesting- Gretzky's stick from the '88 Cup- signed, game-used, matched to the clinching game- is up for auction at Sotheby's and currently sitting at $42K after 64 bids.

Given the Oilers are back in the Cup Finals, haven't won in 30ish years, and this stick was used by the greatest to ever play... is anybody else surprised by the current bid price?

Sotheby's has a Shai Gilgeous Alexander jersey from a relatively meaningless game where he scored 12pts up on their site for $20,000... You mean to tell me a stick Gretzky used when he won a Cup is only worth 2x that?

NBA definitely has more hype and collecting power than hockey, but I'm surprised. What am I missing?

Gen Z Investors Shun 60-40 Portfolio for Sneakers and Rare Cars, BofA Says

Fascinating Bloomberg article (paywalled).

A few of the nuggets I found interesting:

Roughly 94% of Gen Z and Millennial investors are interested in collecting items such as watches, rare cars and sneakers, according to a new survey of wealthy Americans by Bank of America Corp. It was the highest rate for any generation surveyed, with only 57% of Baby Boomers expressing interest in collectibles.

Younger wealthy investors hold roughly the same allocation of stocks, bonds, alts and crypto, regardless of whether they self-identify their investment strategy as aggressive, moderate, or conservative.

Thoughts?
