Collectors: Do you have a story about the item that "got away?" or to put it another way, the thing you passed up that you later on regretted?
It seems everyone I know who collects things has a story about how they saw something in a shop or at a sale, something they didn’t realize was of value and so they passed it up. Later on, they regretted it, and it was no longer able to be found or bought.
