Did anyone collect these when they came out? I was too young then. My older brother (10 years older than me) said he remembered them at the market place; he did not collect them because they look like for little kids. Now I do collect them but they're very hard to get in decent shape. I do you see allot of them around but they're usually beat up looking. I guess back then nobody thought they would worth anything, so I'm guessing they were mishandled allot. Also, the lack of quality control on these books was very low. I see allot of defects.
