    Much more money because if you were a kid in 1968 you wanted almost everything in this catalog. That would be 75 of the regular models, 20 King Size and 16 Yesteryears. Also there were sets like the service station, roadway sets and the Gift Sets. Gift Sets would be #1 on the list as they came with several models. But then again it could be the King Size models like the Dodge twin tippers in photo #3. At about 12" long it was pretty impressive. The models in photo #2 were the standard sized models and the ones you could buy with a $1 a week allowance or paper route money. Wrapping it up are the Yesteryears. The Packard is my favorite from that batch.
    On the right side of the pages there were boxes to check to see what models you had. Write down the ones you want for Christmas and/or birthday.
