Anybody know where I can find a catalog/list of the releases in the Racing Champions Mint Edition series? I skipped these when they came out because I was exclusively a Brand X collector at the time. Found a couple on vacation last week and they rekindled an interest in tracking them down.

Any info on this series -- or where I can find info (another BB maybe?) would be appreciated. Thanks!

RC used to have an archives section on their site. Don't know if they still do but I believe the series ran from 1996-98. I've got a few here if you're interested.

Those are the ones. Many of them were really nicely done, and they could be pretty tough to come by. I just found release #1 (blue Viper GTS) last weekend, along with a '57 Chevy. Don't see many around these days.

Each year , the packaging was changed . First year - '96 & '97 was with stands & plaques , second year - '98 was in black boxes , & 3rd year - '99 was in clear boxes . I was at my favorite area diecast store today , & he still has a few Mints . But mostly sub series , such as Police , Classified Classics , or 50 Fastest . Its Tys Toys in Waterford WI . www.tys-toys.com .
Ty Baker is the owner . Mostly carries Ertl stuff , & 1/18 ..
