Vintage brochures are great to collect because they're colorful, historic, informative, and cost a whole lot less than the actual item they were advertising! While transportation and travel brochures (cars, tractors, trains, planes, ships) seem to be the most popular, people collect almost any type of brochure, as long as the subject is interesting, and/or the graphics are great.
