From an instagram post when he was selling his awards: “I was never comfortable holding onto or looking at these awards/accolades that we got through the years. Don’t get me wrong - I’m appreciative of them, it’s just not something I need to look at."
And you're right, he's not hurting for cash, hence why all the proceeds went to charity.
Overall though, it's just stuff. It doesn't go with you when you pass and after awhile you accumulate so much of it that you don't own it, but it starts to own you.
The fans are probably more appreciative of it or will get more value from it than the creator.
