Like the time I found a binder full of my high school era writings. This time, the fruit was even sweeter.
I found my Anakin Skywalker Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace collectible pog. I am certain if I lock this away in my
sock drawer vault, it will be worth a small fortune after a war destroys every other kind of Star Wars memorabilia, as well as anything else even remotely collectible (Beanie Babies, official Drive toothpicks, AOL installation discs).
This was not the only pog I have come across while preparing for The Move. I also found a pair of Mega Man X (ex not ten, for you Normals) pogs, as well as my Charles de Gaulle Action Pog Set, complete with the metal ‘de Slammer’ (historical pogs were the bomb back in my day).
With this cache of highly valuable collectibles, I will be living high on the hog when I am finally able to retire in 2092
Daniel J. Hogan‘s collection of historical pogs is the stuff of legends. Follow him on Twitter, @danieljhogan.
