The collecting situation has gone completely mad when tatty unjacketed 1958 Hobbits covered in some kind of shiny substance (probably renwax or sumesuch), with torn bindings are getting £210 on eBay. I am so glad that I am done collecting Hobbits (and pretty much done outright).

I wonder if this is all speculation because people think the Amazon series will push prices up? And I wonder if what will actually happen is that all the price-rises happen before the series and everyone paying top dollar for rubbish now will end up regretting it. It really seems to have happened in the last 6 months.
