Jessie Willcox Smith (1863–1935)

Smith’s Little Miss Muffet is the “Mona Lisa” of children’sbook drawings, but her work remains relatively affordable ($300,000 for the compositio­n above). With illustrati­ons skyrocketi­ng into the millions, that won’t last long.

1930s Brough Superior SS100

A masterpiec­e from motorcycli­ng’s Golden Age, the SS100 is a blue-chip investment. Older editions are already selling for more than $500,000, and 1930s models are sure to appreciate.

One of the country’s most revered early-20th-century Modernists, Lazzell gained fame through lush oils and vibrant woodblocks like this $30,000 print. Prices are holding firm, but her moment is near.

Nike Skateboard­ing Shoes

1950s Vincent Series-C Black Shadow

Once the fastest vehicle on the road, capable of 125 mph, the Black Shadow is starting to head downhill in value. This Best in Show winner from 2010 at the Concours in Stafford, England, fetched $70,000 last July, 30% of 2016 prices.

Georgia O’Keeffe (1887–1986)

Auction houses and galleries can barely keep up with demand for O’Keeffe, already a record-breaker with her $44 million “Jimson Weed” (above). Satisfy collectors’ appetites by cashing out now.


Kanye West’s footwear line was cooling off before he parted ways with Adidas: Few styles have fetched five figures since April 2021, when his Grammy-worn Air Yeezy prototypes (above) set a $1.8 million record.
