What's left of childhood friends.
I also found several old Eaton's catalogs, I can't believe I moved out of there without this stuff. My wife was thrilled to see me pull up with a "basementy smelling" box.....

I still have a shoebox full of my old childhood trading cards. They're not worth a damn thing in the condition they are in, and no complete sets, but I can't bring myself to throw them away. Every once in a while I look through them for memories. Lots of cool ones like Star Wars, POTA, KISS, Buck Rogers, etc, along with not so cool ones. It seems like they made trading cards for almost anything back in the 70's.
