Use the Tracker to inventory your treasures or just spend hours drooling over all the pieces you didn't even know existed.The editorials are a valuable teaching tool for the new collector:Boyds 101The Heart of BoydsThose Elusive ExclusivesBoyds Alphabet SoupThe Gnomes Homes... and more!A true Boyds encyclopedia for every resin collector.
As a Boyds collector and lover, I received this surprise as a gift., I could not wait until I was alone so I could delve into the pages of this magnificent collector's dream, and yes that's exactly what it is., it breaks the bears down into any and every category, it displays a space for what the bear cost you and shows its current value and a space for more increase so one can continuously keep track, if there are several variations of the bear it shows those pictures which are richly colored., it allows us to know the value of the bear from wherever its origin, QVC, HALLMARK STORES, CRACKER BARRELL., etc... it even shows special releases. This guide explains the who's and the whys of Boyds bears and begins at its origin with beautiful graphics, and a timeline and price guide from the very 1st bears. This is an extremely comprehensive guide, I have renamed it the Boyds Bear Bible and I deem it 1 of 2 0f my most prized Boyds pieces in my collection as I received both books!
This book has been a very valuable reference guide for me in creating a list of all the resin bears I have which number over 500. It lists the price of each piece by what edition it is and if it's retired. Sometimes when you buy smaller pieces (ex: Shoebox Bears) they might not have the name on them but just the Style Number and this book lists all the items in not only alphabetical order but style number as well. This is truly a great book for collectors.
I just love my Boyds Resin Tracker, but sorry they are not making anymore. I find it so helpful to keep track of the Boyds that I have, as I have about 200 resin boyds. Trying to get one of these books for a dear friend that I got onto collecting Boyds resin.
bought this for a friend who had just inherited a boxful of bears and knew nothing about them. This was just what she needed to help identify them.
