    Kodak memorabilia

    It is not well known, but Kodak used to make specially packaged products and special memorabilia for projects at Kodak Park and WW. I have a drawer full of pins, rolls of film and special cups to hallmark projects I have worked on or things that Kodak was involved in.

    I have Olympics pins, HS film coffee mugs, anniversary films, Veterans day pins, George Eastman pins, etc. etc.

    I have been wondering if anyone out there collects them.

    Of course, I also have my own collection of Cape Canaveral pins from John Glenn's launch and Alan Shepards launch.

    Anyone out there collect this stuff too?

    I don't (not yet. I could be persuaded to). I do find such things interesting though (i will seek professional help, one day, i promise ).

    What would be great, but alas takes a lot of time, is to catalogue the things (mostly helpful to the collector), take pictures of them, and present them on webpages for us all to see.
    That's the beauty of internet: every collector can have his own 'museum', sharing his collection with whoever else is interested.

    I collect Kodak memorabilia too...I don't have that much, but I buy it as I come across it. I think the best thing I have ( and possibly will ever have) is a Kodachrome-X insulated cooler for film that is about a foot long and six inches high...like a huge film cooler...only $2!!. I just love Kodak....I love every aspect of it. With its history and all of the amazing thing it has been apart of, and all the amazing films they still turn up, it is one heck of a company! You must have some great thing from working there over the years!

    The Kodak Collectible i always wish i bought was an Eastman Kodak pen and ink well set. I collect fountain pens and saw that at an auction. For what ever reason I never bid on it, but sure wish I did later.
    I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way.

    Oh my, my boss gave me one of those for a "reward" at the end of a particular project. It is a very nice set.

    OOOPS, mine was a pen and pencil set in a felt lined box. Not the same thing. Sorry.

    I just came across a few large store-display film boxes...about 1 ft by 2ft...Kodak Royal Gold and a Kodak Max I think. They are in nice shape in the basement. My favorite part of collecting is collecting things that cost me $0. ;-)

    Kodak should come up with some special commemorative packaging for the upcoming anniversary of Kodachrome. They would sell a lot of rolls to people who wanted to keep them as keepsakes.
