Did something traumatic happen in your life?
I had a very nice collection of the 200 best Danbury and Franlin mint cars.
They were the cream of the crop, but was forced to sell them when my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer.
I held on to my 1/43 collection of about 100 Neo/GLM/Matrix models.
I lost my wife a year after selling the collection of 1/24, and also lost my interest in collecting. It took 3 years to get it back.
