I was an avid collector of all things Star Wars from 1997-2002 and I still have most of it in storage but I won’t bore you with that. Let me show you my pride and joy.
I’m a fan of the Rocky movies and a few years back I went on a road trip with a couple friends to Philadelphia with the sole purpose of visiting all the filming locations from the series. SLIGHT SPOILERS FOR THE ROCKY SAGA BELOW.
In the more recent Rocky films, Rocky spends a lot of time at the cemetery because his wife and BFF have passed away. He keeps a chair in a nearby tree as seen in this scene from Creed.
This tree is pretty prominent in both Creed and Rocky Balboa but a few months before my visit it had been CUT DOWN by the cemetery and was just a stump.
So… I stole a piece of the bark!
I don’t generally condone taking pieces of places as souvenir, but I don’t feel bad about this because the tree had been killed and the stump was damned to rot away eventually.
Anyway, the bark is on my bookshelf now and I love it because you can tell from the lichens/bark pattern that it’s from the same tree. It’s one of a kind, from one of my favorite film series, and literally one of my most prized possessions.
Edit: @AGENT4T7 I love the Last Crusade knight tablet replica… what an odd piece.
