If my daughter-in-law was reading these posts she would say "Do you want some cheese with your whine". I've been in this hobby for nearly 30 years and there's always been wealthy people in it. There's more now because there many more wealthy people in the world. When I started you could buy a nice Musgo for 20k, Beacon for 3k and 5' Idaho chief's for 1k. Most of us couldn't afford them then, but the wealthy collectors could and they built great collections. If you can't pay cash for a 50k sign drive a used truck and borrow to buy the sign. You'll end up 30 years from now a wealthy person.
