Chris Cs post on another thread got me thinking. Collecting is such a fluid activity, interests change, circumstances change. So, with that said

What cards have you owned at one time but no longer own?

Mine, inter alia:

T206 set minus Wagner, Plank, Doyle and Magie

33 Goudey set minus Lajoie

34 Goudey set

Rose Mathewson

Novelty Cutlery complete set.

Dietsche Tigers 1907 complete set with both Cobbs (I still have the fielding)

Kalamazoo Bat Irwin

53 Bowman sets both color and b/w

53 Topps Mantle

Allegheny (someone, I cant even remember who)

C46 complete set

Ullman Mathewson Duplicate

59 Topps complete set in NM/MT

1915 Zeenut McMullin

Etc., etc., ad nauseum

I owned the Wagner T206 in good condition many years ago and sold it.

Wow, nothing that extravagent like Wagners, or nearly complete T206 sets, but I try and remind people that although you've sold some great rarities in past years, many have financed the purchase of other rarities with those proceeds. You got to give something to get something back!

Complete sets of Topps football and hockey 1972-75. Sold all 8 sets for $20 total in 1984.

Had 113 different Star Wars figures, still on the cards, bought between 1977 and 1984. Got married and sold all for .50 each at a flea market in Lincoln in 1989. But we were broke, and food seemed a better investment.

That is quite an impressive former inventory!

kinda makes my 1984 Fleer Juan Samuel rookie a little less important...


thankfully, no regrets to this point. I collect at such a slow pave and affordable price level so as to not force my hand on any important liquidations thus far...

seriously, though, that is one neat collection of cards you've had pass through your hands.

edited to wistfully add: oh, wait, I forgot about my N172 Kirby Puckett (w/batboy), and 1979 Hostess Honus Wagner (portrait)

I sold my PSA 6 Hal Chase Pink on ebay awhile back after SGC pointed out to me that it would not cross over because of a faint corner crease. It sold for about $200. Recently, the same condition card sold for over $1,000 on ebay. That made me a bit ill, but I did use the sale of about 10 PSA cards, including that Chase, to finance the purchases of my SGC 40 Green Portrait Cobb and SGC 20 O'Hara St. Louis. So, you sometimes have to sell some to buy some.

I went through a phase when I wanted to get rid of "everything not pre-World War 1" and sold off 7-8 years ago: exmt sets of 1955 Bowman, 1956 Topps, 1959 Topps, 1960 Topps, 1961 Topps, 1962 Topps, 1965 Topps all baseball, Topps standups and a 1951 Topps Magic Football set exmt, 1955 Topps All-American football set exmt, and exmt sets of 1954 and 1955 Bowman football and 1960, 1961, 1962, 1964, and 1966-1978 football along with various other cards and sets.
Big mistake, the prices have skyrocketed since then.
I also went through the "I don't want to collect these sets anymore" and sold off some really nice E-97s (had 90% of the set), a large group of E98 duplicates, many 1911 and 1912 Zeenuts in great shape and complete sets in about excellent of E95 and E96.
Huge mistake.
I plowed all that cash back in to other cards though so I didn't come out too badly and have re-started collecting the Zeenuts again, at a much higher price though, sadly
