Day 7. First D&D Product you ever bought. Do you still have it?

I'm certain my first D&D set was the Mentzer Box Set and its iconic Larry Elmore cover. Alas, I do not have that first box any longer.

At some point later I picked up all five Mentzer boxes at the Atlanta Fantasy Fair in '89 or '90. I had those boxes until recently (and may still have them) in a lost box at my parents house. Unfortunately, I may have given my mother permission to throw them away! She did call and ask me about the box, so at least her default position was not to throw them away without a thought or consideration for my desire. 

It is my hope that this year I will find them still in the storage rooms of the basement. Though I worry my answer may not have been heard as "keep them or send them."
