A great catalog

It can help any Matchbox Collector. The highligh is the set of photos. So complete.

Best Little Book on Matchbox

It's hard to believe that so much information is packed into such a little book. It's the big little book for Matchbook collectors. The photo quality in this book is second to none. Although the prices of these gems are always in flux, it is great to have an updated price guide. The history, collecting tips and listing of online resources contained in the book are treasures in and of themselves.

Excellent Guide--very handy and helpful

Most Matchbox guide books are encyclopedic in size. This is the first one I've found that is easy to take with you to toy shows, garage sales, and flea markets. The photos in the book are outstanding. The helpful collecting tips are well-written and are sound advice for collectors. All in all, I'm very pleased to recommend this book. Mine already has considerable wear, and I'll probably be needing another one by Christmas (hint to family)!

Finally ! A Matchbox Guide we can carry around with ease.

Upon reading this new book from Tom Larson,it has finally shown that there is room for a pocket guide amongst all the other "big" heavy Matchbox collector books. This book can be carried easily anywhere you want. Study up on your Matchbox hobby as you go about your travelling. Carry it to Toy Shows, diecast conventions, and even to the local antique auctions. It is small,light, full of brightly colored, well shot photos of all your favorite Matchbox cars and trucks. There is even some rare vehicles,sets, and other accessories shown. With accurate Price quotations for "Mint In Box" models,you are surely to enjoy this work for years to come. For the price, you can't beat it! Definitely worth every penny. Finally, a beautifully compiled Matchbox toy car collectors guide. It will be a hit, Just watch. Thanks Tom :) just another fine book in the Warman's series. Kudos to Krause Publications for jumping on this one.:) sincerely Burney Reid "Diecast Enthusiast" Coquitlam, B.C. Canada


This is one fine little book. The pictures are superb and the text is short and concise. This book would work well for the seasoned collector as well as a collector that is new to Matchbox.
