My M*A*S*H Collection

Several months ago, one of my Monday M*A*S*H Discussion topics was “Do you collect M*A*S*H memorabilia?” In the comments, I promised to share my own collection of M*A*S*H memorabilia. I started putting a list together in February but didn’t have a chance to finish this post until now. I don’t have a large collection.

Most of the items I’ve acquired over the years are books or promotional material relating to M*A*S*H. Aside from a set of trading cards and a T-shirt, I don’t own any licensed M*A*S*H items. I’ve never worn the T-shirt, which isn’t vintage. It’s from 2011.

DVD/Videos
-Martinis and Medicine Complete Series DVD Collection
-All 11 individual season DVD sets
-Two Columbia House “Collectors Edition” VHS tapes

I bought this Amazon bundle in 2016 for $59.99 as a backup DVD set. These are the repackaged season sets released in 2008.

    You are passionate about the show and you have built a great website which, in and of itself, is an archive and memorabilia. And you have collected a group of like-minded fans. 50 years (almost) after the show debuted, you can’t ask for much more. Cheers to you!
