Wow, thanks posting that! I probably have 40 or so of the items on there, it's amazing to see the whole collection again. Especially because it helps validate the authenticity of some of the stranger items, like the "executive companion" with all the tools in it. Thanks again

My pleasure! :)

Your collection must be quite impressive if you’ve got 40 odd items out of that brochure.

As dmr727 said, that whole site is very cool! There are quite a few other Apple relics posted there. Worth browsing through it for a few hours.

I have five issues of "The Apple Catalog" from 1992-1993 which features full color photos of some of their machines like the early PowerBooks, Macintosh Quadra and Centris, Macintosh LC, and the Color Classic. Also featured are their portrait monitor and scanner and other machinery of the era. I am not sure how many of this "series" Catalog were produced, but I know I have another one of the Spring 1993 somewhere in my house, which I got in 1993. These five catalogs I purchased off eBay because of their historical content, and they are rare now, and neat for any Mac collector (like me).

The first one is from Spring 1992, and they go through Spring 1993 I believe....

Is anyone with the old 86/87 catalogue willing to trade/sell one? Curious if there are any older ones as well?

The ones I have are called "The Apple Catalog" and feature the Macintosh line-up, not clothing, accessories, and collectibles.

The Apple Collection must be like "The Company Store" catalog featuring items sold there, such as clothing and memorabilia, while the "Apple Catalog" features the computer hardware and the Mac line-up.

I think they should have used a picture of the beer mug that actually showed the Apple logo.
