I've started selling some of my toys & collectibles.
See my eBay Store for current listings. Thanks, Sam

The classic Monopoly game by Parker Brothers has been around since 1935. Older copies like this one were packaged with the small pieces in a box and the board separate. Originally produced with metal tokens, this version was produced during World War II with wooden tokens due to the metal shortage. These two items were purchased at a toy show and the person I bought them from said that they were obtained separately and possibly did not match. A nice find anyway. Below this old version are my newer, specialty sets.

Monopoly Board Label
Board and Box
Above is the box lid, below is the label from the board. Patent number 2,026,082, no date on the box, the board is copyrighted 1946.
Box Contents
Wooden tokens, houses, and hotels. The Chance and Community Chest cards as well as the title deeds are just like today while the money and dice are a bit smaller. The board looks exactly the same as a current version.

Here are some specialty Monopoly games I own. The Wizard of Oz set, two different Las
Vegas sets and my latest and favorite set--The Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer edition.
