hot wheels collectors race case – Vintage 1969 Hot Wheels Collector’s Race Case Holds 12
Hot Wheels is a new 1:64, 1:43, 1:18 and 1:50 scale wracking toy cars introduced by American toy manufacturer Mattel in 1968. It was the main competitor of Matchbox before 1997, when Mattel bought Tyco Toys, then-owner of Matchbox.
Even though Hot Wheels were initially intended for kids and young adults, so they have become popular with adult collectors, for whom limited edition versions are currently made accessible.
Racing track Collection
In addition to the cars themselves, Mattel produced a racing track record (sold separately). Although it would be upgraded throughout the years, the initial trail consisted of a set of brightly colored orange road segments (pieced together to make an oblong( circular race track), using one (or two) “super hitter” (faux service channels through which cars passed onto the paths, featuring battery-powered spinning wheels, which would propel the cars across the paths).
During the years, Hot Wheels cars are gathered mostly by children, but at the previous 15 years[vague] there’s been a growth in the number of mature collectors. Mattel estimates that 41 million kids grew up playing with all the toys, the typical collector has over 1,550 cars, and kids between the ages of 5 and 15 have an average of 41 automobiles. Most consider the collecting craze started with the Treasure Hunts at 1995. Mike Strauss has been known as the father of Hot Wheels collecting; he has organized two collectors’ occasions each year in some sort since 1986. The very first event was the yearly Hot Wheels Collectors Convention, normally held every year in the autumn. The conference occurred in a variety of locations around the nation before 2001, once the first Annual Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals was placed together. Since that time, the Conventions are held each year in southern California. The Hot Wheels Collectors Nationals rotate among cities outside of California throughout the spring. Strauss has also released the Rs Hot Wheels Newsletter since 1986 and has been one of the first to unite collectors all around the world. He also writes the Tomart’s Guide Into Hot Wheels, a book listing history, automobile descriptions and values, which can be used by virtually every collector to find out more about the hobby along with their collection. Strauss sold his group from 2011 and retired in the Hot Wheels Newsletter.
