Oh, please allow me to provide full disclosure.
I collect...images.
Of course, I also have mountains of stuff, but I am a revenues image collector. It used to be book and magazine clippings. Now it's mostly digital. I have some sliders myself, but I located these images (which are wonderfully huge scans) in a Flickr collection. I'm not sure I still have the link, but you can try searching the Flickr site. Some amazing collections there. Some have generous scans.
As far a prices go, someone is trying to sell "The Impossibles" one on eBay for $300. :/

Sorry for the small pic....Here's one you don't see everyday. I really dug the simple, yet vibrant and creepy look on the box.

Among the most interesting collectibles Playboy spawned over the years was the series of canned Playmate Puzzles that came out in the early seventies. Here's a good list:

Nope, not a chicken.


It was Alien. But this raises the question--which came first, the Alien or the egg.

Or, "Why did the ALIEN cross the road?"
