Limited edition of 25 Batman 1966 toy book

Post by BatToys » Thu Aug 08, 2019 7:31 pm

A fan wrote a scholarly 3 volume set of rare 1960s Batman toys with photos. Also a golden age comic section. It was just for himself but he made 18 available to other fans. I think all were spoken for almost immediately. It was an informative book that is a good companion piece to Batman Collected.

Ed has a pretty impressive site
BatmanToys.com
Check it out if you'd like an idea of what is most likely in the books.
His site is beautifully done and has tons of images like these;

Thanks for the link, Andy. That collection is absolutely INSANE. I thought I’d seen it all and there’s countless items I didn't have an idea existed. Amazing.

There are several PDF files on his site that list the rare items-- I emailed Ed and unfortunately all 25 copies of the book are long gone (no surprise there) but he seems like a right chap with quite a collection.

A close friend told me that Ed sold off all his pre 1989 items back in 2015.

He wouldn’t be the first big collector to go out~ I think there comes a point where we realize we have too much stuff and we can’t take it with us ;)
