Thoughts on limited edition
I've been in this hobby for more than 40 years. At first it was as a kid spending chores and lawn mowing money on Matchbox Models of Yesteryear. Over the years it's grown from there.

But throughout all that time, various makers have marketed their models as "limited editions". Now, for most of the time I've collected, that term was, to put it kindly, very loosely applied. I think Matchbox, Mattel and others meant limited in the sense of "limited by how many we sell to collectors".

So it was very refreshing today as I was logging in my latest purchases to just ponder how truly limited my Goldvarg models are. There, handwritten on the gold label of my Rio red 1948 Pontiac Streamlined Woodie, it says: Limited Edition 082 of 200 units Worldwide.

Think about that. Just 200 of these beauties will ever be available FOR THE ENTIRE WORLDWIDE COLLECTING AUDIENCE. Heck, it's likely I know half of the 200 who bought one. And all that lovely detail for under $100.

I won't question how Sergio does it (and I hope he makes enough for it to be worthwhile) but I'm appreciative of how seriously he takes that term "limited edition". Thank you!
