John Wayne Collectibles For Aficionados of This Western Hero
John Wayne was brought into this world as Marion Mitchell Morrison on May 26, 1907, in Winterset, Iowa. He was the son of pharmacist Clyde Morrison and his wife Mary. John Wayne memorabilia have always been extremely popular but are becoming much more so ever since the celebration of his 100th birthday in 2007.
If you have ever dreamed of owning a vampire sword from Legacy of Kain or Beowulf's elaborate weapon, then collecting replica swords is the perfect hobby. Many people have gotten into sword collecting, with the hobby becoming very popular these days.
While replicas aren't actually the real thing, they are a very good copy.
When I first found my grandmother's Wizard of Oz collectibles while going through the attic, I was surprised. Wizard of Oz dolls did not seem like her style. She has always been an extremely practical woman, you see, and collectible figurines do not fit in with that image of her. Her house doesn't look like a typical old lady's house. There are no collectible porcelain figurines, no blown glass, no sentimental pictures of her grandchildren when they were small. Everything is pretty plain.
