I'm a bit of a pack rat. Not the crazy obsessive kind, but I hold on to a lot of stuff because I think it'll be neat to have in fifty years.
Today we spent the bulk of the day purging crap we've accumulated over the years. We're in hardcore minimization mode, so I went through a bunch of my old boxes and started throwing stuff out. Trust me, this isn't easy for me, and I didn't part with everything, but I chucked a great number of things I've had for over two decades.
In one box, I found dozens of old comic books. A number of these were those old Whitman Comics that included Porky Pig, Bugs Bunny and other Looney Tunes characters. There were also lots of Transformers comics, some Archies and a smattering of Fantastic Four, Spider-Man and Captain Canuck.
I gave them all to my kids. If that 2nd issue of The 'Nam turns out to be worth something, I'm gonna feel like a dolt, but I'll bet it's worth less than the 75¢ I paid for it at the time.
