Picking winners at auction has latley become like shooting fish in a barrell, but I suppose I did a little better than average. Here's the results:
Joe Sternfeld's Mclean, Virginia Estimated at $12-$18K sold for $28,800
The example for sale at Christie's here estimated at $20-$30K sold for $96,000 (size matters)
Peter Beard's Maureen Gallagher... Estimated at $70-$100K. sold for $156,000
William Eggleston's Morton Mississippi estimated at $40-$60K sold for $72,000
Richard Misrach's Hale-Bopp... estimated at $18-$22K sold for $20,400
Nic Nicosia's Real Pictures #11 estimated at $2-$3K sold for $6,000
Thomas Joshua Cooper's Border Crossings estimated at $1500-$2K for two prints sold for $4,800
John Coplans' Self Portrait estimated at $18-$22K sold for $12,000 I guess people don't like pictures of a man's hairy back. Who'da thunk?
Carrie Mae Weems From Here... estimated at $4-$6K sold for $25,200.
Stan Douglas' Michigan Theater Balcony estimated at $1500-$2K sold for $7,200.

William Eggleston's Near Minter City.. estimated at $20-$30K sold for $69,600
Andreas Gursky's Syring estimated at $8-$12K sold for $7,350 (no I wasn't the winner) By the way, Gurky's market is looking real soft. 99 cent may get passed on which would officially mark the end of Gursky mania.
Candida Hofer's Museum für Angewandte... estimated at $4-$6K sold for $7,200
Vanessa Beecroft's VB42 estimated at $20-$30K sold for $19,200
