Both these books are a must.  ;)

The books look great and ill buy one but which one i don't know. i like the stuff Gus has but are the pictures going to be the same ones as the ones on his website or new ones???

Looks like it will be new photography but there might be some that are same in the archive, still good for this price guide. 

--- Quote ---We're planning to sell for $59.99 + postage (tentative) but will finalize the price when we take preorders in the next couple of weeks. We want this to be reasonably priced for a book of this size (992 pages, all color, hardback).

 For me its more need it than got it but i love to look at the books that have rare and foreign stuff. as big of a collection that i have there is something about having to see all those carded figures all in one page. That is almost better than looking at them on my wall.
