I know my regrets wont be as major as some other peoples trades, but I thought I would post mine.

Many of you, have many years of poster trading under your belts, so lets see those regrets!!!!

Run of 12. Probably will never find it again for less than $400.

i needed money and knew someone who wanted it. it does allow a few people to bring it up and make fun of me, so that is a plus too.

not a big ticket item, but when I was rolling this up to ship out I regretted selling it. The printing is really incredible and the image is pretty disturbing. I bought a replacement a couple months later for less than i sold mine for.

I've never traded prints, but I like this topic.

Probably this one, not for financial reasons, just because it's such a great poster and I want to get it back and put it on my wall:

Pollocks 1999 Phish DC (traded for something I THOUGHT I wanted more, only to sell the new print not long after :( )
Emek Decemberists (needed the money)
Malleus NIN/Tool (didn't think it would get framed so I let it go)
Horkey OTA (too big to frame)
OG Peace Tree (just stupid and flipped it, now it's one of my favorite OG's and probably will never get it back)
McCarthy - Don Stepped out (didn't want to sell, but it paid for my shed which i really need)
