First up, we have a little military history:
|Operation Desert Storm Commemorative Mug|
Sure, there are plenty of military collectibles out there, but how many of them offer you the chance to drink your coffee with a map detailing the locations where bombs were dropped. Not many. (Also available in a beer stein.)
Then, a historic cultural event:
|Walgreens 5000th Store Commemorative Mug|
Comes with a free biography of the seller's entire family!
Naturally, the British royalty appear on what might be considered more than their fair share of goods:
|Prince Andrew Coming of Age Commemorative Cup|
I celebrate the birthdays of all total strangers by buying china with their faces on them, don't you?
But American politicians make their appearances as well:
|Ross Perot Commemorative Knife|
They didn't sell very well, but they did manage to drive the first model of George Bush knife out of the market.
And finally, for the true collector:
|Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church Commemorative Plate|
Indeed, who could ever forget the events of Our Redeemer's Lutheran Church, of 1024 West Sixth Street, Williston North Dakota? Truly, a treasure for any collection of pictures of modest public buildings.
