Default Matco Tools 50th Anniversary 1:18 Collectors Set?

I've had this set for years now & have never seen another, not even on ebay. It's pretty large, measuring 21" high X 13" wide X 6" deep. Seems to me that Matco got it wrong as well, being as how the 1954 in the set really should be a '53! Does anybody else here have one of these or know any details about the set? Just curious, as it seems to be a really cool piece if you're into diecast models!

I was asking the OP how much for his. I had the ebay one on my watch page all week! Looks neat, but I dont think the 54 is special to this set. I have seen others with the same car. Everybody thinks they have the only one, but every box I have seen has the same 54.


OP - Do you have a price on yours?
