For No Particular Reason, Here’s a Bunch of Old Sears Catalog Covers

Sears Catalog Cover, Fall/Winter 1977

There are already a bunch of sites out there hosting and/or gently mocking vintage Sears catalogs, so do we really need another? Yes, yes we do. The thing is, I had forgotten just how huge some of those catalogs were. The yearly Wish Books — aka Christmas toys — were pretty big themselves, but the seasonal catalogs were typically well in excess of 1,000 pages each.

That’s a ton of material to comb through, and to be honest I’m not quite sure what the angle is going to be. So while I put a game plan together to ensure that it’s worth your (and my) time, here’s a sampling of old Sears seasonal catalog covers from 1960 to 1983. After ’83 they got rather bland and generic, so I decided on that as the cutoff point.

(If you want to see all of them, the complete set is on Flickr.)

    I have several Sears and Consumer Distributing catalogues from the 80’s. I have a 1990 Sears Summer Sale catalogue still in its plastic wrapper. Is there anyone interested in any of these?

    Great piece. For what it’s worth, those old Sears catalogs can sell for decent bucks on eBay. Just saying….
