22. Steven Spielberg: Movie Memorabilia
The movie director, who has a net worth around $4 billion, is apparently a big fan of “Citizen Kane.” Spielberg spent $60,000 on the Rosebud sled back in 1982, which is surely worth more than that today. It may seem like chump change to a billionaire, but $60,000 is a steep price tag for a sled.
Just imagine what other movie memorabilia Mr. Spielberg has in his personal collection!

Bill Gates purchased one of da Vinci’s last surviving journals for almost $31 million in 1994. The Codex Leicester is said to be the most famous of Leonardo’s scientific journals, so of course the Microsoft co-founder needed it in his collection. Bill is also reported to have hired a rare books dealer to help fill his personal library with all kinds of treasures.
