After years of watching Pawn Stars, I learned that memorabilia only becomes significantly valuable after the death of a known celebrity. Living legend stuff just isn't as cool, somehow.
So how does this work? Bruce Jenner no longer exists. A new star was born to the world, ostensibly overnight, at age 65. Even if this eventuality is a flash in the big oily media pan for now, it is to me far more historical than a photo of Bruce running in the 1976 decathlon—because Caitlyn's coming out may make life easier for a great number of people who are inclined to follow suit.
