AC Gilbert Erector sets were manufactured from 1913 to 1962, the early boxes were made of wood and from 1933 to 1962 the boxes were metal. The wood box sets can be very valuable. There will be some fabulous erector models in action for the kids to view such as robots, amusement park rides and others.

If you have an old erector set bring it to the meet and have the set sold or appraised. There will also be featured other AC Gilbert products including American Flyer, educational sets, magic sets, chemistry sets and fans.

This is a rare moment in AC Gilbert history as the convention has never been held in the Minneapolis area before so this is your chance to clean out the attic and sell that erector set.
