Money - Sense = Star Trek Fans

I am constantly amazed how people throw away money.

Picard's Enterprise-E captain's chair, estimated to sell for $7,000-$8,000, went for $52,000. Two prop wine bottles of "Chateau Picard," estimated to go for $500 to $700, sold for $5,500. "That's probably a record for empty wine bottles," the auctioneer quipped.


Props made of foam, latex, and various resins. Why? I must say I really don't get it. I've never understood buying movie/TV show memorabilia.
