Your post above makes a lot of sense. I've been involved with a lot of hobbies involving collectibles and I've got to be honest: at the end of the day if the collector passes away with a large collection still in his position, the estate does not reap a fair value from it when it's inevitably sold at auction.

Honestly I'm not a huge fan of the "horde" style collections. I think it's better to pass them on to friends, children and other collectors prior to any impending demise. I know that I'd hate to leave my fiance with my collection if I had the good fortunate of being able to plan for my own demise. Selling or auctioning a huge collection of what-have-you is just too much work for someone who really shouldn't have to be dealing with so much grief. I don't know, just thinking out loud.
