I started in 1976 buying a Hallmark ornament a year. Have extras for some years due to gifts, etc.
This is one I have in my collection (though stupid me I didn't keep the box). Mine is in good condition and both books are still being held. I don't put it on the tree anymore; put it in a curio cabinet.
