Does anybody remember the Delaney’s? (Legendary G1 MIB collectors from the late 90s) Or are they still around? This collection reminds me of them.
I think they sold most of their collection a couple of years ago.

They did...to fund their daughter's medical bills I believe. I used to trade with them in the late 90s but they hadn't actively collected in a long while when they sold up.

They had already sold some before that though.

I would say their collection was bigger because they had international stuff.

But the most amazing collection to me will always be Helen's.  She just preferred to keep a low profile...but everyone who knew her knew. I miss her a lot and am eternally indebted to her in ways I never managed to pay back. She was an awesome person and I like to keep her in tge community memory since a lot of newer people never knew her.

I visited her just a few months before she passed away & even after selling a large portion of her collection, she still had more ponies & pony merchandise than I have ever seen in any single collection before or since. She was very private about it, but there's no doubt in my mind that she had the most impressive collection ever. :heart:

<3 I will always regret I never got to see it in person, and that it had to be scattered after her death. I've always been glad you were able to be there at that time in her life. I only met her that once, when she came over in 1998, but she's still the ponyperson who made the biggest impression on me, because she did so much for so many people and yet preferred to keep under the radar.
