Helpful guide, however, it is part of a two volume set and you really need both volumes to effectively use this guide. Listed above is Volume 2 and it is loaded with pictures. The information that gives relavence to the pictures is contained in Volume 1. (Volume 1 has a blue title block and several red squares on the cover.) The 4 star rating is for the pair, this book by itself would only get 2 stars from this user.
The big Book of Superfast Matchbox Toys: 1969 - 2004, Volume 2 is a very good comprehensive data bank of all Matchbox' Superfast. I already have the volume 1 and I bought this volume 2 to complete my own data bank of Matchbox. This set of books is a true necessity for the Matchbox collector. Read and enjoy the fantastic photos!
I have purchased both of Mack's MBSF books. This one sat there for a while pretty much unused, whereas Vol 1 got opened every day. However, as I get more into what this volume actually contains, I am finding in it a wealth of additional MBSF reference material e.g. on model number and name indexes, variation themes & product lines, etc, etc. This is making it a very valuable guide and companion supplement to Vol 1, especially given the wealth of MB issues since the 1990's. I consider it well worth the asking price for the serious MB collector. Give it time and it will prove its worth.
has exactly what we were looking for in info & pictures and highly recommend for collectors and enthusiasts of Matchbox models
