Thinking about creating an NFT collection with a paper wallet system?

Sorry, too late, it has already been done. I met Jeremiah at The Atlanta Blockchain Center last week. He calls himself an NFT Archeologist. He researches and uncovers really "old" NFT collections. Here is one he found from all the way back in 2018 that used a paper wallet system:

"The first ERC721 IPCs from this contract were minted on March 15th 2018. At the time, IPCs were claimed physically, mostly by mail, using the innovative Paper Wallet system."

What is fascinating to me is how the code we write for these NFT collections continues to live on. It is not like deploying a web application, it fails, and then you stop paying for the hosting costs. There is literally no way to delete the NFT smart contract.
