Someone suggested we quit this thread, but it wasn't Dale.... Besides, I'm not done pretending to be clever.

You have $120. And I have three pairs of truly fine fake Campy hoods that you can have (any or all pairs) at $40 per; BUT I also have one pair of truly fine NOS Campy hoods that you can have for $100. (Now, all FOUR pairs to look at are just virtually indistinguishable). Next, what if I offered to put all four pairs in a Keno hopper, spin it like crazy and let you pick a pair, or two, for $50 per. If you obliged me thus far, what would you do?
