HERSHEY, Pa. — If you’re a collector or fan of Matchbox cars, then the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum has just the event for you. The Diecast Exchange is hosting a Matchbox Collector’s show at the AACA Museum on Sunday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.
The event will allow visitors to add to or begin a Matchbox collection as all cars will be for sale. Vendors will showcase toy cars from the entire history of Matchbox — from the first car in the 1950s all the way through present-day vehicles. To support this event, the AACA Museum is offering $5 admission (half the normal admission price).
This Matchbox toy show is a top-notch collector’s event where you are sure to see some rare collectibles as more than 40 of the best Matchbox dealers from the East Coast will be on hand with a half a million dollars’ worth of cars for visitors and enthusiasts to enjoy. Among the cars for sale will be a special limited-edition truck with camper specifically decorated for this show and limited to 150 pieces. Visitors will have the opportunity to admire the amazing detail put into these miniature cars which are approximately 1:64 scale models of full-size cars.
For those extremely eager collectors, an early admission plan to visit the vendor booths will be available from 6-9 a.m for $20 per person. Special room rates are also available at the Spring Hill Suites adjacent to the AACA Museum by calling 717-583-2222 and asking for the Matchbox Show rate.
