Hi all,

Just joined this list after the show.  Nice to meet many of you.

Had to chime in on this topic, in a good hearted way...

Isn't “future collectibles” by definition a relative term?  Some of us are already collecting PowerPC iMacs and other devices of that era. Picking the cutoff point as to what is truly vintage is really arbitrary, at least after a decade or two...

Plus - once you create a shelf for future collectibles, then you have immediately started collecting them!  :)
