Similar to the Finally Obtained thread which hints at finding items already on one's wants list, might there be any mileage in setting up a new category entitled 'I've just picked up an unually rare/possibly unique piece of memorabilia' - rare items not necessarily on a wants list but which have been picked up and are so rare they're worth showing? I just ask because I was lucky enough to pick up one such item today (a ticket involving Oxford University from 1902) but I couldn't decide where to mention/show it.

Great idea, please share.... I have been one of those annoying people posting unusual stuff but don't know which category to share it in

Keep throwing them in "Rare Programmes and Prices" for now, I'd say. There's certainly lots of us who like a good look at each others oddments! Shocked

Love looking at stuff like that, and definitely not annoying.

Put it in the 'Tickets' section Music.

Thanks, guys - both are valid suggestions Smile Such a category would give visitors the chance to see fantastic items without having to sift through many threads if they don't have time and it could include all sorts of memorabilia, vintage and more recent, which are likely not to be seen elsewhere or again... it may help cover some of Leslie's myriad of interesting memorabilia on this forum too! Smile

Perhaps a new, non-programme category showcasing only extreme oddities & rarities could be called "Hens Teeth" ?

Smile

It's perhaps a tad more acceptable than "Rocking Horse Shit" I'm thinking.

Very Happy Very Happy

With a sub-forum 'interesting yet valueless old tat' so I can show off my mugs, rail special tickets and piggy banks!

Good thinking Dorking, I've been searching for somewhere to park my John Aldridge Miniature Bone China Tankard ...
