This has been mentioned already by Greppers and Goofee (it’s not embarrassing owning up to collecting something if someone else does it too!): Wisdens. Every one back to 1963, the year I was born.

I started in 1976, when I became aware of them. When I was a student, I bought the softback editions because they were cheaper, but then eBay came along and I replaced them with hardbacks. Then I backfilled to 1963. I daren’t buy any earlier ones, because then the madness will take over and I’ll spend more than I can afford to 😮

Slightly off topic but does anyone else find themselves ‘accidentally’ keeping all their copies of National Geographic?

I have been debating whether to try and re-acquire copies of all the editions that had maps of the US states as supplements some time in the early/mid 1970s. Hmm, now what’s that auction site called again?

I have nearly the full set of Blue Peter annuals 1-25 (collected pre auction sites). T9 is enjoying them!
