Behind door 13 of my NFT Advent Calendar, we find the CONTACT icon used and abused through some 20 odd years on the world wide web.

Here's your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Internet history, crafted by hand, pixel by pixel, just as the sun was setting on the wild wild west, at the very moment the frontier period of the Internet was coming to an end and the heydays of Web 1 as it were to be know would be gone forever, with ownership granted and guaranteed direct from the original artist.

These classic icons serve as a unique vehicle, an instant connection, to a bygone era where success on the Internet was still measured in Super Bowl ad spend, and amount of Miller Aeron Chairs and Spark Stations amassed.

The extremely limited Vintage Pixels collection features three vintage icons up for auction today, representing the most infamous three out of a set of over 40. Originally created for a content management system named Plone, these pixels soon however ended up in all sorts of places around the world outside the world of Plone too. For a time, they were the most copied, or shall we say 'borrowed', icons of Web 1. If you used the Internet between 2001 and today, you most likely already saw and used one or more of these already.

Further more, the NFTs on offer in this one-off auction are in a pristine uncompressed PNG condition and have been stored in a direct line of succession - from the first hard drive the files were originally saved on (a Seagate Barracuda 20.2GB, purchased 1999, receipt can probably be produced on demand) from a period in time where The Cloud was still an insider joke and AWS had yet to be invented, and your Facebook and Snap was called IM and ICQ - until today.

But wait, the screams of just about every crypto edgelord out there echo - these are not the instantly meme-able shitposts we were looking for! Hower, as the real NFT connoisseurs out there will know, this is indeed a feature and not a bug; As the relevance and value of stonk ape memes fade inverse-squarely over time, these pedigree iconic classics, much like a fine wine, will only appreciate with age.

And to all those naysayers claiming NFTs have no real utility, the NFTs in the Vintage Pixels collection of course come with indisputable proof of utility, having served the world online as pictorial descriptors with no needed additional text for nearly twenty years. That will certainly show them. Reserve a Web 1 classic for yourself today and help rescue it from the accelerating threat of extinction; Now is the time for you to act and secure these rare vintage icons for yourself before some other bro does - because let's face it, who would not want to hang the complete trifecta of pure dot com nostalgia above the fireplace this holiday season?

And speaking of the holiday season, this is by definition the perfect gift for that special person who has literally everything: This, by its very nature, is comes with a guarantee that they don't already own it - and to boot, it comes with proof of ownership to guarantee that nobody else will have this either. Nobody. Ever.
