There are quite a number of large collections. If arrangements have been made, they will be auctioned off. Eventually, because there are so many large collections, there will come a point of saturation among existing buyers. Other collectors have made no provisions for their collections, though thei...

I started divesting myself of items years ago. It was pretty simple: I just looked at the items and thought, "Am I ever going to read this book again? No. Am I ever going to play with this item again? No." And off they went. Owning too much becomes a burden. I shed that burden, and will co...
