Memorabilia Collection

Souvenirs from the journey through cable history.

The colorful history of the cable telecommunications industry has generated a fun collection of memorabilia that seems to tell us as much about the evolution of cable as the more official histories and exhibits do.

Some highlights of this collection include:

  • An MTV Video Music Award Moonman
  • Press kits for favorite cable programs
  • Tradeshow premiums ranging from mini sumo wrestlers to bobble head dolls
  • Coffee mugs of every shape and size
  • T-shirts
  • Posters
