My Monopoly Collection.

Although compared to some, this is not a large collection, it is still going to be a major task to list as I have over 150 versions.  I tend not to collect modern versions, although if one comes my way at the right price, I'm usually tempted. Modern Monopoly first appeared in the US in 1934 in very small numbers, so sets of this vintage are rare and valuable, with asking prices in thousands of dollars. Needless to say, I have nothing of this vintage, or even early 1935 sets, which would also be way out of my price range. In the UK Monopoly first appeared in 1936 and standard 1936 sets are still quite common. I do have quite a lot of these. Initially I have listed 50 games, but will be gradually add to this total. I have also included some non-Monopoly games that are related to Monopoly or have some connection with it. This page is basically an index page, click on a black link to see a page of games sorted very roughly geographically. I do not have anything of any great value, but I do think that it is an interesting and varied collection, I hope you agree. Click on "My Monopoly Collection" to return to this page. My thanks go to Albert Veldhuis, whose  excellent website, has been invaluable in the recognition and dating of my collection, and to Harold Lee whose expert knowledge of early UK sets has help me differentiate between Waddington editions. All the photographs shown are of the actual games in my collection and are photographs that I have taken myself, unless where stated, which at this stage only refers to 2 pictures on page 10.
