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

    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!

      Hi folks,
      I moved into a new house and found two color 20th Century Fox Television postcards – both autographed. One is a head shot of Alan Alda and the other is the original cast from early 70’s Loretta Swit, Alan Alda,Wayne Rogers,McLean Stephenson,Larry Linville, and Larry Burghoff. Autographs look authentic and post postcards are in pretty good condition. How can I find out what these are really worth? Would like them to go to someone who appreciates them.
