Got Seeds, they are in the apple that I epoxy clear coated and have in a show case . There is several decendents of the tree around the world , one is at M.I.T. The original tree feel over and is laying on the ground but a start prospered off the stump and is a full grown tree once again. It took a lickin' but still is tickin' The tree is registered as a National Treasure by the Queen

It's too bad that nobody grabbed some of Milton Humason's empty liquor bottles that he tossed in the brush behind Mt. Wilson observatory. One of those would be a cool artifact for display.

I do have one of Tom Cave's empty breakfast cereal boxes (no lie!). I've been wating for Turk to make me a ridiculous offer for it.

Speaking of Milton Humason's empty liquor bottles, here`s my ash tray next to a 16 oz Budweiser.

It's wrapped in brown paper, with one of Cave's return address labels on it. It has "F.R.A.S." hand-written on it after his name.

I bought a book from him a long time ago, that he had listed in the Starry Messenger and he sent it in the cereal box. For some reason, I've hung onto the box all these years.

Height wise
Weight wise its 845g, or (1 pound 13.8oz )
Its a very rare eyepiece and the crown jewel of my Masuyama lineup.

I found an old Edmund "jumping disk" still in plastic sleeve.

Compared to that Masuyama EP, though, it's about as interesting as watching something rust.

When I saw the first photo, I was thinking "OK, Robby is good, but where's B-9?" Then you totally came through!

I have the Johnny Lightning Lost in Space set. If I could talk myself into removing them from the packages, they'd make nice display pieces next to the ashtrays.



My B9.. the regular one is behind the chrome one.

PEZ dispensers!

I had forgotten about those. I have the ST set as well as TLOTR set. And I found some Star Trek stuff in that closet too. Phaser, communicator, tricorder (original series) as well as the ST watch (analog). The second-hand is a little Enterprise that flies around the watch dial. All the ST stuff is still in it's original packaging.

Possibilities there...
