Welcome to The Monkees Collector's Home
Page Collectibles Page. The Monkees have certainly made their place in memorabilia history as well as of course
television & recording history. It wouldn't be possible to collect one of each of
every Monkee item out there, there are too many unique items as
well as mass produced ones.
My first Monkees record was of course their first album which I
bought used. from a friend. I was at this friend's house in around 1977 &
"hanging out" outside of his room. He was inside playing "Mr. DJ" with
his fake DJ voice & he said something like "Now here's one by a group you may
remember!" I believe it was "Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day" or something.
Now this was a time when the "oldies stations" weren't as
popular, so I hadn't heard the song in many years (I was probably 5 or so). The more he

albums brought back & of course My listening pleasure. They weren't worth any money.

find. Anyway.. .I asked if the store had any Monkees albums that
were worth anything & he pointed to the one in the plastic sleeve on the wall (My
first clue...it wasn't one of the million crammed in all of the boxes), & I walked out
of the store with a down payment of 5 bucks or so for a $45.00 Still Sealed copy of
Changes. (I made $1.50 an hour for an apprenticeship job. so this was quite an expense for
That's the beginning of My Monkees Collecting
history, more serious at times through the years than others. Goldmine Magazine was a good source years ago, haven't used them for quite some time. The net
has so many areas to buy & sell things that it works out for me in my hobby.
This site is for everyone to enjoy. Hopefully it will be an aid for
collectors & I'm sure it will bring back some fond memories to non-collectors when
they see Monkees memorabilia.
