The most popular die cast toys in the world, Matchbox metal vehicles took on a new look in 1969 with the introduction of the Superfast line, and this new edition documents them all. The diversity of these tiny toys is truly amazing. Written as a sequel to another popular volume, Lesney's Matchbox Toys, Regular Wheel Years, 1947-1969 (Schiffer, 1992), author Charlie Mack has compiled clear color illustrations of the toys and accurate text to identify all the variations in details which make each toy so recognizable and collectible today. This 3rd edition features an updated Price Guide that is helpful to collectors who search for elusive and rare models at today's swap meets, toy and antiques shows, or flea markets.
