Breyer Catalogs

Collector's Manual

(c) Reeves International, Inc.Breyer produces two kinds of catalogs. One is meant for collectors, and can be found in the box of many Breyer model horses that you buy. The size of this collector's manual (also called the collector's catalog or consumer catalog) has varied since its inception in 1968 and most recently has been about 5 1/4" x 7". Collectors' catalogs for recent years are usually pretty easy to find, as anyone who's been buying Breyers lately probably has several lying around the house. Breyer did not publish collector's manuals in 2011 and 2012, and recent manuals are not clearly dated and have multiple covers.

Dealer Catalog

Breyer also produces a much more detailed catalog which they send to their dealers--the dealer catalog, also called the trade catalog. These catalogs, first released in 1954, provide background information on new molds and larger photos of each release for that year. Dealer catalogs are typically 8 1/2" x 11" and today cost the dealer about $6.00.

Help Wanted! Yes, I'm holding out the hat again. I'm slowly gathering old catalogs, but it takes time and is fairly expensive. If you have a catalog that's not shown here, or is shown only in black and white, please contact me. I'd love to have your scanned images of it, or I'll gladly pay the postage if you're willing to entrust it to the Post Office on loan.
