My Collection of 1982 First Generation Richard and the Postman Peachback Action Figures is Second to No One

My collection of 1982 Richard and the Postman mint-in-box action figures is second to no one.

First off, my set is first generation. Second, they’re peachbacks. Third, they’re complete at 48 figures. Some people will try to tell you that the set is complete at 47. I’ve had to make a lot of people look stupid over the years. That’s because they forget about figure 48– “The Pantry Vampire”, which was only available by mail. One guy, just to try to make up for his ignorance, said, “Well, your copy of “The Pantry Vampire” is not mint-in-box.” Yeah, he actually said that. Then, he said, “The peachback card is not flat with bright colors and has obviously lost some of its original sheen.” If it hadn’t been for the degenerative nerve disease in my hands, I would have hit the guy. I really would have. Later, when a noted expert in the field judged my copy at C10 (mint), I was proven the victor.

Let me tell you something else about my set. They’re in the original boxes, like I mentioned. NOT ONE of the boxes is punched. The punch-hole is intact, perfect and has its original sheen. This is the pinnacle of mintness. There’s another guy down in the Southern Pond Area, that has 45 unpunched cards. I happen to loathe this guy but that’s not the point here. The point is that 45 isn’t 48. It’s not perfect. He’ll never be something that he’s not. He knows that.

Mrs. Pinshears figure from the 1982 set. Mr. Chubbucks would not allow his copy to be photographed, so the example shown is from a lesser collection.

Right now, I have a limited edition Price Guide to the Richard and the Postman 1982 Peachbacks available. There’s all you’ll ever need to know in here– 32 pages, side-stapled quarto. A “variant” edition is available with an extra four pages of color photographs (not from my collection, mind you but from lesser collections). I do not allow my collection to be photographed.

You can pay by check by sending $39.99 ($49.99 for the “special edition”) to John Chubbucks, c/o Linda Chubbucks, 268 Spoons Road, Eastern Lankville or by PayBuddy at chubbucksstickergod.spummail.net. Make checks out to CASH.

You’ll never need another resource.
