When Mattel's Hotwheels toy cars exploded onto the market in 1968, venerable Matchbox Toys met the challenge with its Superfast line. The successful result is now presented in the largest book on Matchbox Toys ever produced - so big it is two volumes that celebrate 35 years of Matchbox Superfast production with over 7000 color photos and over 10,000 listed variations! The detailed, beautiful photographs are a great assistance to collectors for identification and color reference. The Variation Listings, found in Volume 1, are arranged alphanumerically by product numbers, making location and cross-referencing easy. Photos are arranged by major product lines, with Basic Models in Volume 1, and everything else from Adventure Pack to White Rose Collectibles arranged alphabetically in Volume 2. Superfast models from late 2004 and early 2005 also appear in Volume 2. Each photo includes the product number and name for easy reference to the Variation Listings. To further aid in identification there are helpful indexes by MAN number and model names (actual base names), as well as a general alphabetical index. The model variations have current market prices for each variation. Taken together, these two great books are a must for Matchbox collectors everywhere, a monumental effort by one of the world's greatest authorities! Volume 1: Over 2050 Color Photos of Basic Models Illustrated - Promotionals - Miniature 1-75 Basic Listing - Variations Listing with Values Volume 2: Over 5000 Color Photos of Adventure Packs & Action System to World Class Models with late 2004 Models - Alphabetical Index - Index to Annual Basic Range Listings 1998-2004 by Issue Numbers (MW numbers) - MAN Number (frame number) Listing - Alphabetical Index by Actual Base Names

Book Description Schiffer, U.S.A., 2005. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 22cm x 28cm. New book with minor shelf wear at the cover from the bookstore. This copy has 16 pages more, since the last 16 pages (part of the color catalog of the cars) are repeated. A peculiar unintentional thing, since the binding fits as a glove and it is perfect, and the repeated ones have no logic whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 000341
