I wrote this in the Whipping Post too, but I thought you non-confrontational folk would have some interesting responses, lol.

I bring this up because I just realized I have lost my favorite photo of all time....a picture of me when I was about 12, with my mom, dad, brother, and sister, standing on Ellis Island with the World Trade Center in the background, circa 1990. And to top it off, I'm wearing an awesome throwback Philadelphia Eagles sweatshirt. My brother is giving me bunny ears, and everything about it was perfect. I'm so angry at myself for losing it. Anyone have a similar story?

I had a full set of U.S. president trading cards that was printed in the 1950s (the set ended at Eisenhower). They were manufactured by one of the companies that were known for printing baseball cards. Somewhere over the years the cards were either lost or stolen. Perhaps they're hidden in a dark corner of my parent's house, but for years I haven't been able to find them.

They weren't my most treasured personal items, but I did enjoy having them and now they're probably worth a bit of $$

Over thity years ago, I was working overseas and my parents moved house while I was gone.

They dumped loads of my accumulated childhood "treasures", not least a poster of the LAFE cover.

I can't think of anything treasured that I lost besides my old baseball card collection which would have been worth little to anybody but myself. They weren't in mint condition.

Sucks to lose old photos which are not replaceable. Good idea to scan them and back them up on a hard drive or two and or memory cards so at least you have something if you lose the originals.

You're not looking hard enough. I just looked out the window and, sure enough, it's right there. Keep trying.

When I was a little girl, my dad bought me a Cinderella watch for my birthday. I loved that thing. Don't know what happened to it but I sure wish I still had it.

Not items I lost, but let slip out of my hands.

My 1970 Chevelle SS454, sold 22 years ago because I thought it would be the adult thing to do for my young family. Sold it for $7000 and it's probably worth $30-40K now.

Also, I let a guy talk me out of a nice 1963 Fender Precision Bass around that same time. Sold it for $1100 and it's probably worth $5-6K, if not more now.

Something I DID manage to lose entirely is my 1st concert ticket stub, Aerosmith, April 1975, Toys In the Attic tour.

Well, not really a single item, but a collection. My sports card collection.

After attending a few sports card conventions, I've discovered that my collection would these days be worth somewhere in the low 5 figures dollar-wise.

Had both Nolan Ryan AND Pete Rose rookie cards. Worth 3 & close to 4 figures easy these days.

Had every TOPPS baseball card from 1958-1969. And, quite a number of rare cards from earlier than that, as well. (a 1955 Jackie Robinson, 1955 Duke Snider, 1955 Don Drysdale, 1955 Sandy Koufax, 1952 Eddie Matthews, 1953 Hank Aaron, 1953 Warren Spahn among many others)

Even had a 1963 BASEBALL card of Dave DeBusschere (the former NY Knicks forward & NBA Hall Of Famer) when he tried his hand at baseball with the Chicago White Sox.

Also, had quite a number of football cards, too (both NFL and AFL). Ranging back to the mid-'50s. Had a Len Dawson card...not as a Kansas City Chief, but as a Cleveland Brown. (That oughta bring up a WHOLE lot of "what ifs" from Browns fans!)

Also, I've had a few guitars that I've sold, been stolen or traded away that I really regret doing so now.

A 30th Anniversary Gibson Les Paul Gold Top (sold)
A first year (1983) American Vintage 1957 Fender Stratocaster reissue (stolen)
A reissue Gibson Firebird V (traded...for the 30th Anniv Les Paul above)

I just wish I still owned EVERY guitar I've ever owned.

I had a djembe once, an African drum, that had tremendous spiritual and sentimental value to me.

One day somebody broke into my car in the parking lot where I worked and stole it. I can only hope they got some enjoyment out of it, because it totally crushed me at the time. If they just took it to a pawnshop and sold it, they probably didn't get more than 50 bucks for it, and it was worth far more than that to me.

It took me a while to break in a new drum the way I had that one. Valuable time lost in getting the hang of a different instrument. I'm sure any musician here probably knows what I mean.

My grandfather, on my dad's side, died when I was 5. I have only a couple of vague memories of him. He wore a St Christopher that my grandmother gave me when I was little. I started wearing it in my mid teens, and lost it in the locker room at high school after a couple of years. Pains me to this day.

I was at work and pretty much had to look out my window.

lived on top floor of an apartment in manhattan and water tank on roof exploded and leaked into my apartment. i had all my vinyl records stored on the floor between 2 cindar blocks. The flood in apartment ruined all 200-250 of classic rock vinyls. flood was in 1975 so my records probably dated from years 1965 to 1975.

My grammar school class photos. Had the full set, and carted them around everywhere I went (i.e., moving from place to place). Now I have 6th and 7th grade only . . . no idea where the others went.

Many years ago I taped JJ Malone at a blues jam in Oakland. They held a Sunday jam at Eli's Mile High Club....rough place but the best blues in the Bay Area at the time. JJ did the most beautiful slow blues I've ever heard then or now. It was my "I get it" moment...it wasn't loud...it wasn't fast...it was the most real blues I'd ever heard. I listened to that tape for years but some where along the line I lost it....His voice was so tender and so real that right now I'm choking up thinking about how powerful that performance was and how I had it on tape...
