For a while I was buying nice ballpoints and stopped at about 30. Yard-O-Led, Mont Blanc, Monte Verde, Dunhill, Pelikan, Parker, Conklin, Sheaffer, Lamy, Omas, Porsche, Aurora, Delta, Faber Castel, etc. I'm pretty much over the fetish but still enjoy the pens.
My cheapest was probably about $20, and the most expensive was probably about $350.
I would have bought fountain pens, but my handwriting is awful enough as it is.
