The common reported regret seems to be selling product prior to its reaching its peak value. Understandable. However, I think it's probably safe to say that most of us who have been around a while made far more than lost overall. I do not think I can make 25% of what I made on all the statues and busts I have sold over the years.

However -- to answer the Q: No regrets statue-wise. I enjoyed what I had when I had it and sold it when the time came to make room for something new. However, I do have one regret. I purchased an Amazing Spider-Man #1 in my early 20s (circa late 80s/early 90s). I overpaid for it too but I really wanted it and it was pre-internet-time so it wasn't like I have loads of places to go to find one. Anyway, many moons later, I discovered that the book was restored (color touch-ups and tiny pieces added to cover staple holes) so the book will never be able to reach it's intended true value. Looking back, who wasn't been ripped off by a comic dealer during this era...? My one regret. The book has since been signed by Stan Lee (witnessed) and graded a 7.0 but that restored label sure is an eyesore and awful reminder that you really have to careful out there is comic-land.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

No big regrets as I really haven't sold much and those I sold were for a profit so that makes it even easier. I find that I tend to have more regrets on things I don't buy than those I do. Even then, in a hobby like this, you can always get something later on if you passed or sold.

I regret selling off some of my art a few years ago when I needed cash.
