Models of Yesteryear models in rare blisterpacks

Postby matchboxmarcel » Fri Oct 24, 2014 9:41 am

My current collection of red blisterpacks.
All different. i.e. 1966 or 1968 catalogue printed on the backside. a D3, E or E1 box inside the blister etc.
3 more to arrive, all with a 1966 card and D3 box inside: Y6-2 Buggati, Y15-1 Rolls Royce and Y5-2 Bentley.
I also have the original display rack for these packs. This was on show at the 2nd MECA convention.
The Y7-3 Rolls Royce was a quite recent find.
On the Y11-2 Packard there is a variation where the card is clued upsidedown.

My current collection of 2nd type of blisterpacks. (the ones with F box and card with Driver)
All different. i.e. 22 Kingsize or 24 Kingsize model listed on the backside.
The 1st Y10-2 Mercedes has a plain backside.
The Y5-2 Bentley also has a plain backside and as far as I know does not exist with a card with printing on the backside.
Also 3 trade boxes included (for Y9-2, Y14-2 and Y16-1) Only the Y9-2 carton is full with 6 models.

My current full collection of 3rd type of blisterpacks. (the ones with F box and full color card)
There are no variations on these, exept on the Y15-2 Packard (which I have)
The Y13-2 Daimler was a quite recent find.

Image

My current collection of last type of blisterpacks. (the ones without the box)
All different. i.e. Blue Text - New Superfast or Blue Text - 2 New MBx Winners) printed on the backside.
The very rare Y15-2 Packard with purple boarder was a quite recent find.

Some time a canadian collector contacted me via private message board on the British Diecast Forum from Nick Jones.
We settled in the end for some blisterpacks including the latest type of blisterpack (without box) for the Y15-2 Packard which is very very rare. (pictured on the left in the attached pictures)
The Y15-2 Packard is the only one of that type which has a purple boader (standard is pink for all other models)

On page 460 of Alex Picha his book it was pictured but the card was missing a corner. That card was not my own.

I am pretty convinced now that I may be the only collector in the world who has all these 3 versions for the Y15-2 Packard. Very very rare cards.

I am building my Models of Yesteryear blisterpack collection for a long time now since I found my 1st pack over 20 years ago and I am happy I recently found 2 of the 3 holygrails, this Packard being one of these.

This collection currently holds 104 blisterpacks (including the 3 to receive)

If you want to get rid ever.£0.20p each plus postage as they make ideal target practice for my rifle.

The Beveren meeting is a lovely meeting which I have visited many times.
I don't have a driving license and unless you sleep somewhere nearby it is not possible to arrive in time on sundaymorning from my place by public transport.
Did't visit the swapmeet this time.
Do you have photos of the packs you aquired?

True that Beveren is not that easy to get to when you depend on public transport. Especially on a Sunday.

Here are the two yasteryears I bought.
