Matchbox Blister Packaging
Introduction

In this document an attempt is made to categorize all the blisterpacks made for single Matchbox Series 1-75 models from 1963 to date. The selection of blisterpacks presented here is based on a small exhibition which was first shown in 1993 during two international toyshows and the compilation would like to direct the interested collectors' attention to a topic area which in the past has found little consideration: the blisterpacks.

Blisterpacks are a packaging type by which the die cast toy models are enclosed in a thin molded transparent piece of styrene and then attached to a backing card. Blisterpacks were introduced at the beginning of the sixties by numerous die cast toy companies and they are used as the most common packaging type until today.

Matchbox models were offered from 1953 until 1963 exclusively in the traditional closed boxes which had been designed by M. Kohnstam for the marketing of die cast metal toys. These were small boxes which resembled the make-up and size of matchboxes.

In a publication, the Matchbox collector Philip Bowdidge from England carefully described nearly all possible box variants of this early period using black and white copy images of the "Script Moko boxes"; "Moko boxes"; "Lesney boxes"; "Picture boxes" et cetera and explained the sequence of the issuing dates. From time to time this publication was amended by supplementary pages to make it topical if variants, not known so far, had been discovered by collectors.

In 1963, the Fred Bronner Corporation in New York, N.Y., marketed the first Matchbox blisterpack in the United States of America. Blisterpacks, in the production process somewhat more costly than the regular boxes, were meant to be a complement to the traditional packaging type: The models were supposed to be quickly recognized by children (the buyers, the consumers) and they would no longer needed to be sorted into big cardboard displays in a tedious way. It became possible now to present the models in food and department stores, gas stations, almost everywhere, without problems in a sales rack, in any corner, but well visible.

A "second product" had originated, so to speak, with the transparent packaging on a cardboard with a colored motive backdrop. Naturally, the packaging was torn open after the purchase and disposed of in the trash can as waste. This seemingly paradox idea did not only correspond with the spirit of the world of economic miracles of the sixties but also decides over the sucessful sale of a product until today: An attractive packaging only results in a most effective eye-catcher for the consumer. And, it is an open secret in the profitable economy that products in a noninterchangeable packaging ensure sucessful sales and highest profit rates. But it was here that the Fred Bronner Corporation got into a dilemma: The world known trade name "Matchbox" pointed to the trade mark, the "Matchbox"-box making the product itself noninterchangeable and recognizable. In the beginning, it was decided to simply encase the classic cardbox within the first blisterpacks, which meant that the sales product was double packaged. Thus, the "blisterpack with box" originated: The model and its box encased together onto a cardboard. A curiosity by itself, because in the long run this type of double-packaging economically did not make any sense for the company. But the first blister series for the miniatures - as well as for the Yesteryear models - were enclosed together with the original classic cardboard boxes. For some Matchbox collectors these first type blisterpacks need careful consideration: It is from this type of packaging that the description "mint and boxed" (unplayed/brand new and packaged with unopened box) received its true meaning. The miniature series 1-75 was offered in blisterpacks with boxes until 1970. In the U.S.A. only, the traditional way of packaging with the conventional cardboxes was maintained through the seventies and eighties until 1997 as an alternative to blisterpacks with their sales racks.

This listing excludes every kind of packaging other than blisterpacks (closed or window boxes, bags, models packed with other items etc.) and all blisterpacks made for more than one model (twinpacks, multipacks, value packs etc.) or for combinations of Series 1-75 with other models. Also, related ranges which are not regarded as part of the Series 1-75 are not covered (e.g. Super Chargers, Swop Tops, Sparkers, Mega Blasters, Turbo 2, Connectables, Convoy etc.).

Mainly the front faces of the packs are dealt with in this issue of the document; systematic coverage of the various designs on the backs of the blistercards is postponed until a later issue. Without the comprehensive records from the factory archives and the assistance of the interested collectors such a work is not possible.

We hope that this listing will offer some interesting information and reading fun, and we would also like to expect critique and suggestions for improvements. With the possibilities of multimedia equipment, personal computer systems and worldwide online services collectors will find new ways for the exchange of experiences and knowledge. The digitalization of photographs makes it possible to quickly integrate and process without difficulties additional information about new variants and finds. In addition, these technical possibilities offer the chance to create a "new" and independent communication forum for collectors which will establish itself side by side with the printed periodicals. No matter in which direction the technical changes will go, it is safe to say that through the new and changing technical structures communication will become simpler and faster.

The descriptions of the packs in the following listing are subdivided into the following categories:

WW Worldwide standard packs 1963-1970
EU European standard packs 1971-2001
US US standard packs 1971-2002
CA Canadian standard packs 1978-1997
INT International standard packs since 1998
BR Brazil Regional
BG Bulgaria Regional
CN China Regional
FR France Regional
HU Hungary Regional
JP Japan Regional
CH Switzerland Regional
  Special packs (for standard models)
  Packs for promotional models
  Packs for spin-off ranges

With the standard packs, type sequence letters are adopted from commonly used designations of Matchbox box generations (closed box types A to L, European window box types M to S) that roughly correspond to the blisterpack generations. Types A to C are omitted because blisterpacks did not yet exist when those box types were current. Type K is omitted because blisterpack type J directly corresponds to both box types J and K.

For the last three categories only a basic overview of known types is given; more details will be given in a future issue of this document.

Dates mentioned in this list are the dates that the cards are believed to be used. Usually, the copyright date is the previous year.
