Eric Clapton bought 3 paintings by Gerhard Richter in 2001 for a combined 3.4 million dollars. These 7 foot tall works, which look like nothing more than bad tie dyes to this untrained eye, will make Slowhand a ton of fast cash. The first two have already sold for a combined 55.2 million dollars, with the final piece expected to fetch ANOTHER 20 million!

Looks like Eric will realize a 20 fold profit on his initial investment, proving once again that “there’s one born every minute”, and many of them are born with silver spoons in their mouths.
