If you do have an extra one and want to sell it that would be great!

There were at least two versions of this catalog.

One included a Model Rocketry Technical Manual (The 'Yellow Pages' from earlier versions of the catalogs) and the other did not.

The original 721 catalog I was mailed from Estes did not have the Technical Manual.

Hi Bob,

The Estes 1972 catalog that included the Model Rocketry Technical Manual bound in the catalog was issued May 1, 1972. See the attached catalog bulletin printed in red and signed by Carl Turse, Estes Product Manager, for documentation explaining about the Model Rocketry Technical Manual and when it would be in the catalog. Apparently, Estes even offered a coupon with some of the Estes #721 catalogs to be able to send in for a free copy of the Estes Model Rocketry Technical Manual as soon as it became available.

Kind regards,
Jeff Jenkins

I believe the '72 Estes catalog was the only one with the "Weirdo" horizontal orientation.

GH, correct. And I just checked my catalogs. I?m surprised because I thought I had an extra 72 but I cannot find it if I do.

I?m just curious if anybody has ever seen publication quantities for the various catalogs.

It?s surprising that you frequently see some of the very early catalogs like 69 but virtually none of the 72. Has anybody ever seen what the publication numbers were for the various catalogs?
