Renowned science enthusiast Albert Einstein was also known to do a bit of traveling. Behold, Einstein’s 1923 Swiss passport, when he was a rather dashing (dare I say smouldering?) 44-year old.
My parents really enjoyed Buddy Holly, so now I’m giving them Cash, Johnny Cash. In passport form.
The Man in Black’s passport from 1968 to 1973. During this period, he did some pretty badass travel: Vietnam, the Philippines, and Denmark.
This passport sold at auction for $22,000. Worth it.
I collect nothing, but I could really get into collecting passports of the rich and famous. As with everything else on the internet, there’s a subculture and a language. Better yet, the value and prices of expired passports are something else.
Unfortunately, Buddy couldn’t take his hipster good looks to several countries, including Hungary, so fiendish it gets all caps, bold print, and boxed-in text. This passport sold for over USD$26,000 in an online auction in 2006. Amazing.
