Almost everyone has an old newspaper cover or two tucked away somewhere - and most of them are absolutely worthless, because newspapers were printed, and saved, by the millions.

But they are still fun to look at and collect: Dewey Defeats Truman. Man Walks on Moon. WAR. Nixon Resigns. Kennedy Shot. Sox Win Series.

Many people also save old newspaper clippings particularly relevant to their family or background, some of which can also provide an interesting glimpse into the times (or the Herald, or Mercury, or Post, as the case may be).
