    I had autographed photo collection of movie stars, mostly horror related. Boris, Bela, Lon Chaney, and a lot of others.
    5 Albums full. Went into the trash when we moved.

    Had they not thrown them out, they would be everywhere today and therefore worth very little. The have value today, purely because they were played with and traded, not sealed and labeled “collectible.” Nothing billed as “COLLECTIBLE” with grow much in value. .

    Beanie Baby, anyone?

    Don’t forget stamp collections, and toy soldiers that were given away! Ohhh, it must be extra hot in that part of H!

    Mom threw away my treasured boxes of comic books but I still have my Lincoln logs and Gilbert Conveyer erector set.

    My Mom gave away my collection of Big Little Books, and then the war came and many were turned into pulp at the paper mills.

    I had baseball cards from the 30s and 40s that were tossed.

    Boy – today’s comic has struck a nerve. I lost all of my stuff I had stored at my mom’s during the Mississippi and Missouri floods of 1993.
    My kids today say, "Don’t you have any photos from . . .? and I have to say, “no”.

    Sorry, but there are a lot worse actions people can take than throwing out things – I don’t think there is sufficient ‘sin’ involved to warrant a place in Hell (yeah, yeah, I know, its just a comic strip, so don’t take it seriously).

    The worst room in Hell is reserved for them.

    That’s terrible! I can see why you would be devastated.
