There's a way to prevent people not give a .... As far as you teach them to care about this things, it is unlikely that they'll sell them up for nothing... In the worse of cases, at least there'll be someone who will be interested in the picture (and the story behind).

(anyway... who knows if ebay will still be around in 90 years: maybe future trade will be done by sophisticated tele-transportation means... or maybe we'll be back to trading arrow heads and amber beads and will communicate by smoke signals)
