Default who else has sold off their collection and regrets it?

I got into comics back in the craze of the 90's, when business was booming and Image and Valiant were starting out, challenging Marvel and DC for a huge share of the market. I still remember going to the San Diego Comic Con for the first time, buying up a signed copy of Preacher #1. eventually I decided to get into sports cards more than comics and ended up 'giving' my collection to my younger cousin. The only book I still have is my Wizard ACE copy of Strangers In Paradise #1. Looking at some of the prices for graded stuff, I'm sure I could have made some money off my old collection. I still pick up TPB collections of stories that I enjoyed (Infinite Crisis, The Long Halloween, Secret Invasion).
