Supreme x Meissen Porcelain Cupid Figurine — $8,400
Hand-painted by expert Meissen artists, Supreme’s porcelain Cupid statue is part of the brand’s FW18 drop, and it's easy to see why it ended up on this list. For the uninitiated, Meissen’s figurines are truly a piece of art, regularly ending up on auction houses such as Sotheby’s, which goes to explain its baller-friendly resale markup.
Eminem x Carhartt WIP x Nike Air Jordan 4 “Black Chrome” — $12,300
A collaboration between Nike, Carhartt WIP, and Eminem, this Air Jordan 4 is still one of the most coveted sneaker collaborations, having been originally released in 2015. Only ten pairs were made, as they were created exclusively for a few select family and friends of the Detroit rapper.

Medicom Toy Be@rbrick Layered Wood 1000% — $15,000

Its handmade wooden box is also a nice touch.

Nike Air Jordan 11 "Derek Jeter" — $40,000
Another extremely hard-to-find sneaker. These Air Jordan 11s – created to commemorate Derek Jeter's retirement from the MLB in 2014 – were released at a pop-up near the Yankee Stadium and were distributed through scratch-off lottery tickets. There were only five lucky winners, and one of them is looking to part with theirs for a tidy profit via Stadium Goods.
