SPY TOYS

Spy Vibers interested in vintage toys from the 1960s and 1970s based on classics like 007, Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Secret Agent might get a kick out of this 1998 publication, Spy Toys by Cramer Burks. Although some of the black and white images and outdated values may put some off, the book does appear to bring many rare TV and film tie-in toys to our radar. A "look inside" feature reveals a number of those cherished toy-ad pages from the Sears catalog. Used copies are out there for under $10. More info on Amazon

  1. I've got that James Bond Road Race set on the cover! Found it, in its original box, at an antiques store/flea market when I was in high school for something like $60... something astronomical for me at the time, but worth spending all the savings I had on. Unfortunately, it's missing the Aston Martin.
