anyone collect hot wheels here ???

I just got a bunch of old hot wheels and need to find some way to price them, ebay knocked off most of the 60s and 70s and current stuff but everything in between is hard to find any guides out there ?

Im pretty sure the only reference book i have seen had pics only dude.
I love Hotwheels and plan to collect all the stuff that was released when i was a kid, plus i have a box of them and my kids have several hundred, but theirs get battered as you can imagine.

its hard to find info on the stuff past red lines but not recent because there is no easy way to find out where they came from or what number they are. they are numbered after red lines but the numbers are only on the package and not on the car its self

Hot Wheels are absolutely cool... this is one collectible that I know very little about but am ever impressed by what is out there, the history and the passion of those that collect them.

covervettejim has a nice Hot Wheels collection.

I think this is a very 'tidy' collectible as well... just stack 'em.

I've seen collections displayed in cases and 'on walls', almost like a home decoration, really cool.

Did Hot Wheels ever do a 'Batmobile' ? I remember having a Batmobile years ago, I believe it was somewhat like the one from the TV series. I would like to get another one (loose) some day. I look over Ebay for one sometimes but the sheer number of hits makes it hard to find one... heck, it might even be Matchbox.
