Finished otomoto 101-200 and half-finished turbo 1-50 series

Good news for today. Three at once.

First. Completed first half (it’s now 25 different!) of legendary turbo 1-50 gum papers series with receiving #39 bmw. Exchanged it into another turbo 1-50 I had. It’s also first ever direct 1:1 turbo 1-50 exchange for me.

Second. Finally completed and now I have full otomoto 101-200 set. As I remember correctly, it took me whole many years to do it, about a year to find last 5 missing, and half a year to hunt down last 2. Today is the day, last #117 came to me. I’m not sure if it would be possible to collect another full otomoto set, as value of them rise when they are less available. But still, until full satisfying collection, what left are some otomoto covers to collect. I have all from 1-100, and still not many from 101-200. Actually, haven’t been collecting them so much as papers.

Third. Results of small fast deal: 1 turbo cover came directly into collection, with new color in the set, another 10 came indirectly with additional months. And nice additional covers from ’88 and ’89 for exchange. In good quality.

Bonus. Small video showing full otomoto 1-200 collection in nice album.

      It’s almost impossible to do so. I have few just for exchange into other turbo from 1-50 series. What numbers you have yourself?

      Hello Everyone,

      My fiance is from Romania and collected turbo wrappers as a child. As a wedding gift, I am trying to purchase the 1-50 series since it is the only part he is missing. He has wonderful childhood memories collecting these wrappers and I know that he would cherish them. Is anyone out there willing to sell me the series or individual wrappers? We are getting married July 29th of this year, so I am hoping that I will be able to acquire these wrappers before then. I look forward to hearing from all of you and want to thank you ahead of time for your support.

      Sincerely,

      Nicole
