It's a very good point. It's actually both most of the time. When I see something like a mint first edition Max 200G with a spotless cover, my heart starts pounding. It's a great experience. It's almost like finding a clean 1969 Mustang sitting on somebody's farm for a $1,000. It happens but so rarely.

Yesterday, I stoped by a local Goodwill during lunch and saw something interesting, a beautifully made clean Garcia Graphite woodie with a French aluminum head press and cover. I wish I knew anything about this frame.

Should I had spent $6.99 for it? I decided to leave to other collectors.
