I've been a fan of GI Joe since I found a GI Joe astronaut in a relative's toy box around 1970. Picking out my first accessory set (it was Danger of the Depths) in 1971 sealed the deal. I still have a vivid memory of taking my Secret Mission to Spy Island set to school for kindergarten show-and-tell. I played with GI Joe up through the mid 70s, but never really lost my love of the toy.
In the 90s I began rediscovering GI Joe at flea markets and on the then new ebay site, and have amassed a collection that features examples of each production item made between 1964-76, with many packaged. I hope to spread my love of the greatest toy as far as possible, and interest new collectors in the world of vintage GI Joe.
