We often hear about things that aged like milk and turned sour, to say the least. Think of statements like “Man won’t fly for a million years,” made by The New York Times in 1903 just a few days before the Wright Brothers invented the first plane, or Google advertising itself as “a pure search engine with no links to sponsors, no news feed, no portal litter, no ads, and no weather” in 1999. Read on for more disastrously wrong examples of things that turned sour in our previous post right here.

But this time we’re looking at the opposite examples that stood strong against the test of time and proved they were 100% right. Thanks to the miscellaneous corner of Reddit r/AgedLikeWine, we have some brilliant posts ready below.

Upvote your favorites, and be sure to add something you think has aged beautifully in the comment section below!

Damn He Called It

Damn He Called It

Hundreds of love letters between two gay WWII soldiers were discovered and sold to a museum. One of them said, "Wouldn't it be wonderful if all our letters could be published in the future in a more enlightened time. Then all the world could see how in love we are." They are now being made into a book.

Some things never change for me. The fear of spiders, my love for coke zero, and my distaste for raisins. Do whatever - hide them in a sponge cake, try persuading me they’re the same as grapes, now as an adult, I have come to terms that there’s close to 0 chance I’ll start eating them.

Just like my personal preferences, many other things have stood the test of time and proved to be relevant to this day. A great example is books. Since their invention in the 1450s, books have been filling up the shelves of our homes with stories of adventure and exploration. Think of the classics like In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust and Ulysses by James Joyce, they still keep captivating our imagination more than a hundred years later.

Some books not only stood the test of time, they actually proved to be even more valuable today than they initially were. Take the first edition of William Faulkner’s The Marble Faun, for example, which is now on sale for $125,000. The seller Peter L. Stern & Co. presents the book as the “First Edition of the author’s first book. Original paper-covered boards with spine and cover labels; about fine in the rare dust jacket with tiny chips at the extremities and only very minor wear; in a custom cloth slipcase.”

Moreover, first editions that include personal dedications, signatures, customizations, and other rare artifacts can even double the price. Condition is another key factor that influences book value. A beat-up old book that is falling apart will have little value. Scarcity also influences value. For example, for hardcover books published from the 20th century onwards, the presence of a dust jacket and its condition also greatly affect value.
