If someone buys a car costing £150,000 should they have bought a cheaper one and given the difference to charity?
What about paying £2,500 for an autograph? £600 for a box of vinyl records? £200 for a book?

Yeah, each to his own and all that stuff, but it just seems crazy to me.

Something for sale is 'worth' the greater amount a buyer is prepared to pay for it.

I offered some 600 LP's incuding Elvis ones (the cheap labels, no RCA-Victor) for sale on a selling site for € 1,00 each. Sold about 30 LP's and had the pleasure of people collecting a € 1,00 LP and having only 80 cents with them and one waving a € 500,00 banknote........
Then there were the people who did not show up, showed up at the wrong time or when I did not open the front door quick enough started to ring the doorbell of the neighbours.
So I decided to give them all to charity and they were happy with them as they sold out within a week!

I had more luck selling Suske & Wiske (Bob & Bobette) comics. I had a lot of special issues given away by all sorts of companies and products in the 70's and 80's. Offered some 120 for sale for € 1,00 each and sold them by the dozens. Have some 20 left which also will go to charity when the advertising time runs out.

So what one person does not sell,
someone else can sell without a problem.

Just a couple of days ago, Pete Best became a 81 year old Beatle.

By the way, here's a couple of cool images that have recently surfaced, showing the band playing at The Cavern in July 1961 :
