Most recently, I regret selling JiM #85 4.5 to help finance my purchase of my AF #15 2.5. I sold it for $1,500, and it is now selling for $6,000+. I am very happy to have my AF #15, but that is one book I will probably never get back.

Join the club. I sold my JIM 85 6.5 WP to someone on these boards last year for $2200.  Yikes

I seriously don't know anything about statues.  Do statues appreciate in value?  Or are they depreciating asset for collectors who buy them to display?  

They mostly stay the same, provided you keep up with any large shipping boxes they come in etc.

This one in particular has gone up maybe $200. I traded win the ASM #129 4.5 and the SS#4 8.0 cost me and was worth about $400 a piece. I've since replace the 8.0 with a 4.0, that has appreciated

Not a total loss but dang hahah

FF 1 CGC 3.0 SS Stan Lee - Sold the book for $4.5K on Reese's Rare Comics (at the time, fair market value) with the intention of upgrading it to a 4.0 blue label.  Got the money from the sale but Reese's never came through with a 4.0 and two weeks later, my 3.0 SS Stan book went up in value to $10K+.  I trusted people where I shouldn't have.  I should have put a $10K price on the book until a 4.0 was found but with hindsight, it's easy to know what should have been done.  Sadly, I dissolved my FF collection after that knowing that I will never have the opportunity to afford another FF 1.  Still irked about it to this day!

Well, I ended up looking at it this way. Yes, I could have held on to my JIM #85, and then sold for over $5,000 now. However, the current price of an AF 15 2.5 has increased to over $25,000. I would never had been willing to spend $25,000 for an AF #15 (or for any other comic books, for that matter).
