Someone who wants to make money like that on the back of a gesture by his/her employer shouldn't work anywhere.I agree 100%.
An act of kindness and appreciation gets abused to try and make fast cash.
The same applies for the ones that are buying limited editions and are selling them to other collectors charging 30-40-50% more. It’s not nice.

This is a little different. The LEs are presented to the general public for acquisition. If, later on, you want to sell them with some profit, I see nothing wrong in that. These, however, were presented to the employees personally. It's like selling a wedding gift you received...
IMHO, of course.
I see the collectors community, as the word says, as a community. It's a shared love. I don't like trying to get advantage on a shared love.
There 2 ways in my opinion: you buy something paying normal price, you wait it to gain value, you sell it. I am fine with that. But i saw people buying 5x of the limited 100 years Elesner for 90/100$ dollars each and selling them the day after for 140/150$. That's unfair. That's the same thing that happens with concert tickets.
That's my opinion though, so i could be really wrong.
Sorry for the OT. This case is even worse as it's a gift for your work. Especially if one asks 18000$ for something he didn't actually make.
For the value i think we need at least a bunch of people who bought/sold it to value it
I read an article on the local newspaper but there was nothing more than the auction price.
