"When I was in seventh grade, I was very much into the Beatles. In fact, I saw them live that September (1964). My lunchbox that year was "The Beatles Kaboodle Kit." Really not very durable, it was made of cardboard and covered with tan plastic. There was a picture of the Fab Four printed on the front. I carried it the whole year.
"When I grew up, I was a collectibles dealer. I found out that my cheesy lunchbox was worth $600. That was several years ago. Heaven knows what it's worth today. Eeek! My mother threw it away, two years before.
