Yeah - anyone can claim to be from the Old School (and thus glory in the fabulous honors and rewards thereof), but can they prove it? I was at the parents' house last night looking through old photos and found a few of me getting my old D-n-D expert set and a couple AD-n-D books.
You'll also notice a Crossbows and Catapults add-on and Robotech model in this last one. Don't know why I'm doing the paparazzi move in the photo though. And though I no longer have the box for the Expert set, I still have the expert books and those AD-n-D books to this day. Actually - I have that Crossbows and Catapults stashed somewhere as well. The Robotech model put up a good fight, but was eventually lost.
