Got lucky and was able to pick-up the last Holiday Inn matchbook (with Mantle's photo) variation that I needed this past week.

Nice matchbook Mike! I'll have to share some info on a couple of new variations one of these days






Just kidding. I think you have them all, or at least all but the one with blue matches.

That's the toughest one to find of the bunch imo! Great pickup.

I know you told me, but I forget ... which one did you pick up with the blue matches?

As far as variations, I'm sure we can come up with many more. There are the ones with no matches, the ones with one match, the ones with two matches, etc.

Thanks ... especially since I think you're the one who informed us of the variation.

I've been looking for the Holiday Inn matchbooks for 2 to 3 years on eBay. I've only seen 2 with the yellow background in all that time, the one I got and another one. This is the first I've seen of this variation, although I've only been aware of it since you told us about it. So I think the yellow background variation would give this one a run for title of toughest to find.
