I do understand it based on the style. The Whippet really is the quintessential fedora style. However, the prices don't match the quality level. The Whippet was one of Stetson's cheapest hats! For a Whippet to sell for the same (or more) than a Stetson 100 is just nutty on that level. But, the hart wants what it wants and collectibles are often guided by the heart.
