Been there too!

My brother and I had a large collection of comic books, three stacks about 8’ tall, back when the the classic issues were only 25¢ and regular issues were 10¢.

When my brother and I went off to college our parents gave them to our cousins. No big deal except the second year we were gone, the town was ingulfed in the 100 year flood and our cousins house had water to the ceiling of the basement where the comics were stored.

Now my son collects comics and we go to the comic book store I see some of the issues we had selling for $500 and up!

But the one that bothers me more was the radio made for one of the Mayo clinic doctors with a chrome plated chassis and custom cabinet. I had this hidden in a corner of the garage under a cardboard box and burlap. When I went to retrieve it after I graduated from college, it was gone. My dad had tossed it to make room in his garage. I assume that would have easily fetched $1,500 to $2,500 as it was in working order, if you waited long enough for the tubes to warm up.
