Irrespective of when and how it was obtained (and in what manner it was obtained), what are your personal favorite or most valuable 1980’s piece/s of film, music and non-entertainment related memorabilia you have and please elaborate on why do you admire or treasure it, or what makes it reasonably special or unique to you ?

Please keep in mind anything mentioned doesn't have to relate to just things that are entertainment related.

If in case this topic has been discussed before on either this forum (with people giving their reasons why) or elsewhere, please give a link if possible

You don't own that anymore....I do,,,but I cherish it just as much! [Wink] [Razz] [Big Grin]

This is a great topic, and I can't narrow it down to one thing.

The thing I cherish the most are my highschool year books from the 80's. Especially 1983-1986. I love looking at the pictures and seeing all the goofy things we did, and the fashion.

Clothing wise-are 2 satin blazers, that I loved wearing in the 80's, they are really the only clothes I even have left.


I actually wish I would have saved more stuff.

Oh I have more than one Quicksilver shirt from the 80's, but the one Isis has is way cool.

This is an awesome topic! I would have to say my stickerbook, which is a trip to look at on occassion! Also, my Harvey Edwards and Patrick Nagel prints, my copy of The Preppy Handbook, my three Strawberry Shortcake Dolls that are still new in the box (Blueberry Muffin, Baby Apricot and Butter Cookie) my original Swatch watch and my Andrew McCarthy autograph! Check out my pics!

I found a Strawberry Shortcake doll on the way home from school one day, and you'd have thought I struck gold.

One thing I wish I would have kept was my Buckwheat T-shirt.

I have a Rubik's Cube key chain.

My Mad Magazine Card game is one of my favorite games that I still play and have great memories of...we use to play either that or UNO at lunch every day. My son has barely time to eat lunch...let alone them hang out together. Our cafeteria in high school had a jukebox which was way cool, so I am glad that we had that time in school to just goof off.

Real nice Valley...hahahaha [Smile] . I think I'm going to have to post those pics soon. It's funny what you said about Tiffany cause of all the guys, I only really talked to Jon once. He was so nice but I could care less. I was too busy hangin' with the Funky Bunch [Wink] .

Sounds Like Cindy Remembers Some Good Vibrations!

Yo! It's about that time
To bring forth the rhythm and the rhyme
I'ma get mine so get yours
I wanna see sweat comin' out your pores
On the house tip is how I'm swingin' this
Strictly Hip-Hop boy, I ain't singin' this
Bringing this to the entire nation
Black, white, red, brown
Feel the vibration

Come on come on
Feel it feel it
Feel the vibration

Cindy-I love your pictures!

I still have my sticker book too from the 80's.

I had a bunch of E.T. Stickers, and Garfield ones, and the Scratch and Sniff ones.

I had a friend who lived about 45 minutes from me, and we use to write each other in the mail all the time, and we would send each other stickers back and forth , or sticks of gum...it was all fun.

I have a bunch of things rally that I cherish. My Joe Strummer autograph, some rubiks cubes, my music books of Siouxsie and the Banshees, Echo and the Bunnymen, the Cure,U2 and Depeche Mode. And of course all my DVD's and VHS's that I have painstakingly had to acquire over the years. I actually still have my scratch and sniff sticker album from the early 80's, but there is hadly any smell to them anymore.

Of the handfuls of 80s memorabilia that I still cling to and save from the church rummage sales, probably the Hess trucks I've gotten over the course of many Christmases.

I guess that would be my diaries. I used to write every single day, and it is just so cool to relive all those intense teenage years through the diaries.

Am sad to say that I succumbed to the 90s grunge & minimalist, movements and have lost/given away most of my things. Looking back I am very sad now. Some of the penultimate 80s things I once owned were: one of the first mini TV's (still rather cumbersome), hypercolour T-shirts, lots of denim, Fergie bows (does anyone else remember them?), Strawberry Shortcake, cabbage patch kids & barbies, New Kids on the Block signed posters, Men At Work's autographs, Danni & Kylie Minogue's autographs - and lots more........ok I have to go away and cry now.

I gave or threw away any 80's clothing that I may have had back in the 90's when the grunge thing came around. But I have some posters somewhere in this house- I know one of them is a door size one of Cinderella (the band, not the movie!) and a Cinderella bandana. I have lots of stuff like that, just can't remember what all I have. I have a few tour programs. And I would never even think of giving away any 80's music that I own! I still listen to mostly 80's hair bands- that was the best time of my life!

Of course all of my movies and a couple of books that have tons of 80s pop culture information in them. Any time I am missing the 80s I just go back and read those and I feel like I am home again.

I also have 3 miniature cabbage patch dolls that are erasers. Don't know who I got them from, but I have them in a box of stuff that I have kept from the 80s. Old notes from my friends at high school, old photos of me and my high school boyfriend and stuff like that.

I have an original '80s cast & crew jacket from the A-Team tv series (sweet!) and a plastic M-16 toy rifle from the A-Team. I also have a talking Ernest doll, a poster from the tv series "V" signed by Marc Singer & a Batman ('89) cardboard mobile that was hanging in a video store when the movie came out on VHS.
I also have a Dukes of Hazzard General Lee signed by Bo, Daisy, Roscoe, Enos & Cooter! Oh yea...and my Fall Guy & Buck Rogers lunch boxes and a Buck Rogers poster signed by Erin Gray, Gil Gerrard & Felix Selia also a Flash Gordon poster autographed by the Flashter himself--Sam Jones.
I have tons of other stuff too...but those are some of my favorites. I also have a lot of '70s memerabelia.
