If anyone is dumb enough to think the $4.5 million ($5.4 million with the juice) reserve on Egyptian Queen isn't going to get tripped, I've got a block of Fyre Festival VIP tickets to sell them.

Who here thinks it will end up in the Lucas Museum? Or many Robert Rodriguez is the new owner.

900k gift to HA; my impression the family had a figure they wanted privately...couldn't get it...put it up at HA and...got it. Big drama (not).

Then Jim broke his own rules by bidding LIVE unless it was a "friend" that called in (and somehow qualified for a $4.5 bid lol )

900,000 BP...... WOW!!!!!!

Then add in 9.5% sales tax in Los Angeles $513,000

So the final could be almost $6M

I have not seen Jim in person in any LA Ha auction...I don't know if he is there, however he has a right to call in a bid...anybody can bid. It is most likely a museum....Georges...
