Links & Web Gems: A True Collectors Site- Prince Valiant A Warrior For All Time

One of the benefits of the web is the explosion of collector sites. These sites are usually a labor of love posted by a collector. For many people who amass collections, the value of their collection is not monetary, but emotionally valuable—and often not for sale. Collections allow people to relive their childhood, connect themselves to a period in history or time they feel strongly about and to keep the past present. Some collect for the thrill of the hunt, as collecting is much like a quest, a lifelong pursuit which can never be complete. When one collects, one experiments with arranging, organizing, and presenting their collection to the world which may serve as a  place of refuge for other collectors. One such collectors site Prince Valiant A Warrior For All Time by Sonny Phillips. This is one of the nicest sites for and by collectors that I have ever come across. The site is beautifully designed and organized and covers every aspect of collecting Prince Valiant from the beautiful toy soldiers produced by Elastolin to the printed mediums of books, comic strips, catalogs and more. The history of Valiant is here alongside a fascinating look at the collectibles associated with the legend.  Everything a collectors site could and should be. No matter what you collect a visit to this website serves as a guide to everything that is right about collecting. 

Here's the web site intro from author Sonny Phillips- created this site for those that love Val and his story and to have a place where we can all share our materials and pictures. I hope that you enjoy your visit and I encourage you to share with us your thoughts and pictures.

Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur, or simply Prince Valiant, is a comic strip created by Hal Foster. It is an epic adventure that has told a continuous story for its entire history. Today it stands out for its realistic panoramas and intelligent and often humorous narrative, which appears below the pictures, without word balloons. The items shown are accurate, but taken from very different time periods ranging from the viking age to the 19th century.
