This new guide book is twice the size of the first guide that debuted in 2017. It contains twice as many photos and includesover 17,000 prices and listings of modern day diecast vehicles. Some of the guide’s unique features include market demand indicators, prices for factory sealed and short carded editions, and plus and minus signs to indicate where the market has been heading for certain releases.
In 2018, the guides’ editors, Doug, Stacy and Daniel Kale, also released Kale’s Redline Toy Cars Investor’s Guide which covered the redline era of cars such as 1968 to 1977 Hot Wheels, 1969 to 1971 Johnny Lightning, 1970 to 1978 Sizzlers, 1971 to 1974 Rrrumblers and much more. Both of Kale’s previous guide books have sold out.
