Default What was that one piece that you really regret selling?

Here's mine. A 1962 Topps Vault Transparency for card #139 "Babe Hits 60" and a PSA 7 card to go along with it. It wasn't an expensive piece, but you know how I love those oddball items.

Surprisingly, after a couple of years, this is the one I kick myself for.

What's yours?

Hanna Batrite J. Foxx. While I paid $3 and sold it for $1,500 I wish I had it back. Sellers remorse is soooooo much worse than buyers remorse. Great idea for a post.

I have posted this many items on this forum and also game used universe. The biggest item i regret selling is a 1950-52 Larry Berra(Yogi) game used bat to John Taube. This was before i knew what i know now, and now after looking at past prices and all, i believe i got taken advantage of because i knew nothing about what i had. I'm never going to let this go intill the day i die. Paid $45 for three bats, so $15 for Yogi and sold it for $1,500 and acouple small items were included.

The only item Ive ever had w any value and I regret a lot was a partial 1937 Yankee team ball. It didnt have Joe D and a lot of the guys, and was VERY light at some points, had a VERY light Gehrig, but nice Ruffing, Rolfe, and pretty nice Lazzeri, plus Henrich, Crosetti, Pearson and others

I had never got it authenticated, but Im pretty sure on it. Paid 135.00 for it, got 400 for it, I think. Guy said he was a collector, promptly resold it on ebay. I was pissed and upset, and never have had anything worth more than a few bucks since due to my issues.

Mine would be a boxed card game called "All Star Card Base Ball" that I purchased for $60 at a toy show back in 1988. The box had a little wear, but all 54 playing cards were in great shape. It was the complete Polo Grounds set (WG4)...Jackson, Wagner, Cobb, Johnson, Mathewson, McGraw, Lajoie, etc. At the time, there wasn't a lot of interest in them and I wound up selling them for around $3,000. The regret is not over upside value (REA sold a similar set last year for about $12,000)...just the missed opportunity to own a high-grade complete set from 1914 without any pain!

Default I should stop looking through what I've sold in the past...

Here's another one I'd like to have back as It was the very first photo I bought from the Christy Walsh Family seven years ago. Babe and Christy Jr. on his first day of school.

A beautiful Babe Ruth ball (sig probably 8 or better, ball itself about 6 or 7) signed on the SS on an American League official ball (red & blue laces). The owner of the ball stored the ball in a sock in a drawer for many years. At some point along the way Ed Lopat, the former Yankees pitcher turned house painter, painted this gentleman's house. The owner of the ball was a huge Yankees fan and he asked Lopat to sign another side panel (DOH!). Anyway, the ball still presented itself as a beautiful single. I bought the ball in 1991 for $1700 in trade (3 Cal Ripken Topps Traded rookies which at the time booked at $200 Ea plus $1100 cash). I owned the ball until 1996. The same dealer offered to buy the ball back from me for $2700 cash and I did it. $1000 cash profit and enjoying the ball for a a few years seemed like a great deal at the time, but I wish I still owned it. Oh well!

Tony Mullane's Last Will and Testament. I had his original from the early 1920's and then about a year later I got a twice signed 1940 Will. I wish I had been able to keep one of those.

I try not to think of the great items I've let go in the past. I save scans or photos of most of the items so I miss them a little bit less.

My biggest selling regret is a W600 Luther Taylor. I bought it several years ago at a Cleveland National for $90 and sold it a few months later for $500. Good return, but now I realize how difficult it would be to replace.

A T206 Chesbro in close to NrMt condition I bought in the early 1980's. I paid a lot for it at the time and would carry it around in an old-style holder. I recall many experienced dealers commenting on how it was the nicest Chesbro they ever saw.

Sold it in the late 1990's, but since then dozens of examples appeared in better condition and been graded, but at the time I had one of the best.
