I'm too much of a hoarder to sell anything. *climbsoverprintstack*

If I sold it, chances are I don't regret selling it -- because it probably meant I wasn't really into it for some reason. I have a ton of prints right now that I could probably sell, but I haven't because there's something about each of them I still like. Until I know I'm over a print, I'm reluctant to get rid of it and find myself having to post in this thread. ;)

Just in terms of missing out on the blow up, within a year of Tyler's stuff starting to take off I sold my Warriors variant, Lost Boys, Thing, and Blade Runner. I think that all sold in the $100-150 range (if that) or in trade value. Ah well... sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and sometimes you just win a bit less than what you would have if you waited a little longer.

Yeah, if we're talking purely financial reasons the Stouts hurt the most.
This one especially:

I can also claim the first recorded sale of this... for $270 :

Not too upset though, when I sold things it was only if I really wanted to buy something else that I wanted more at the time.

Hasn't happened yet. I suspect it is looming on the horizon as I have decided to sell most of my prints to fund OGs.

Me too! I sold it for $85 last year and just now looked at what it's been doing. Holy hell! I'm almost speechless. It's a cool print, but not worth $600 IMO. In fact, I actually had trouble finding a buyer for that price. I thought I got lucky in getting rid of it for that price at the time.

I sold this in order to purchase one that was already framed. And I never received the framed one. Got my $$ back after many weeks of emailing. But I don't have the print anymore.

The moral of this thread is:

"Never lowball yourself out of a print you like."
