Going forward.  I am good on bumpers and would like to keep the set of Hi-Temps for training outdoors, plus I need the 15's and 10's.  I would like to add to the premium bumpers with a pair of colored 35s and possibly black 15s and 10s..

Metal Plates are a different story.  I would like to stay at (6) pairs of 45s, (2) pairs of 35s, (2) pairs of 25s, (4) pairs of 10s and unlimited 5s and 2.5s.  I would like to stick with collectable plates and get a pairs of Zuvers, Berg, Jackson, Eleiko, Paramount, Thor, Lou Ferrigno, Viking, Cougar and other unique and interesting plates.  I would not mind owning Ivanko or Iron Grip EZ grip plates.

I do not expect to be actively looking for equipment.  A pair of 3rd Generation Jackson 45 pound plates recently changed hands in the neighborhood of $3000 (around $30/pound).  At some point, I may be seeking historically significant plates at auction.  This is not happening today.

Pig Iron:  Regarding the 320# of plates, I would like to be able to set up a curl bar from 50-100# and two spin lock dumbbells.  The curl bar can be set up with 25-10-10-5.  I rarely expect to use the dumbbells, but it is nice to have them for heavy single arm.
