Hi Guys,

I'm looking at a Wee Warrior's mail order catalog in the original mailing envelope.  Sent out in August of 1979.  5 1/2" x 7 1/4" magazine format.  81 pages.  Some rust on the staples.  Order form included.  Any ideas?

(That is the sound of eager excitement rather than anger.)

Until the pictures are posted . . . what's the condition of the envelope and catalog?  Worn, pretty good, crisp, etc.?

And can you (at your leisure) scan the whole shebang without adding any new damage?

Actually, just let me know.

I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say that even though I haven't seen one for auction before, there are probably a least 2 Wee Warriors collectors that would pay $100 for it - probably more.

81 pages is a pretty substantial sized catalog.  I would be in for a c-note and I'm not really a WW collector.

How could they fill an 81-page catalog? Didn't Wee Warriors only publish about a half-dozen titles?

The catalog includes only about 1 1/4 pages of Wee Warrior products.  The company sold products from a wide variety of other suppliers.  I believe this catalog was produced after they closed their store front operation in San Luis Obispo, CA and went totally mail order.

The catalog is fairly basic.  Black printing on plain white paper with no pictures.  Basically a list of items and prices organized by supplier. I'll see what I can do about posting a picture.  Luddite that I am this may take a while.

Strange.  I don't recall a blank island map on the Mysty Isles I sold.

Anyone?

The "Island of Non-Humans" is described as a "referee anything goes island"  That is what is being referred to.  The map itself is not blank.  There are just no descriptions included.
