Cool Selling/Purchasing Regrets

I know we all have selling/purchasing regrets in our lives... What are yours?


My #1 Regret is selling Doom on Throne PF Ex. for face value upon initial release. , but at least I know it went to a good home!

That would have been a sweet flip. The majority of my flips funded me buying more stuff. I might regret selling certain pieces but nothing that makes me lose any sleep.

I still regret selling my full run of the Adam Hughes Sideshow Maquette's. I got almost 4 times what I paid for them but still miss them.

I recently purchased a replacement Mary Jane AP. Probably the only one I will spend money replacing unless a super good deal comes my way on another one.

Biggest Regret selling was my Alien queen dio and my Iron Spidey Ex...made some $$$ to purchase other Staues and stuff so it's not so bad...

Biggest Regret was NOT purchasing the Hulk vs Spiderman dio...it was in my hand 20% off Retail at my local shop when it first came out(box was beat up a little, statue was perfect)....but I hated how small Spidey was ...was just getting into collecting at that time..boy I really regretted that one a few months later.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

I regret reading that. lol ...that sucks, man.


I regret selling my Bowen Kingpin for a couple hundred dollars a couple years back. Now I have to pay up if I want one.

I regret not buying the GG Ghost Rider on Bike when it was easy to find for a decent price.

I also regret not buying the P1 Storm Shadow when it was up for order.

...not too bad, so far.
