This revised 3rd Edition for Matchbox collectors by one of America's foremost authorities includes an updated price guide. The public's enthusiasm and the long-term interest of children as they grow into adulthood have provided the necessary ingredients for Matchbox toys to become ideal collectibles. The old toys become scarce and variations of newer toys have given collectors a challenge to own each one. They collect not only the toys, but also the catalogs, collector buttons, and boxes. All of these and more are included here. The toys pictured and listed represent the major variations of the most popular series made by Lesney Products from 1947 to mid-1969. Included is a list of organized clubs for collectors. This is a great resource for all collectors and lovers of the regular wheel Matchbox Toys.
