It's been a while since I picked up an annual guide so can someone please remind me what the difference(s) is (are) between the Annual Beckett Almanac Guide and the Annual Beckett Price Guide? Thanks!!

Thank Bryon! I also noticed that Beckett has a special sale on the 2019 Almanac right now at 70% off for $15 so I just snagged one - thanks again for your input above!

I picked up a 2019 Almanac for Christmas this year at 70% off on beckett.com. They still had them earlier this week. It replaced an 18-year old one that I had, so I don't mind not having the most recent $50 version.

The new almanac should be coming out in the next few months. I usually pick one up every tow or three years and I think it is time for a new one. I usually get mine off of Amazon that way I know it will get shipped to me.

The Almanac will include things like Burger King sets, Kay Bee sets and regional team sets. The Annual guide will only include the bigger names like Topps, Upper Deck and Fleer.

I'm thinking that one guide includes memorabilia. Is that the almanac? Or does it exist? Thanks. Dave
The older Almanacs used to include things like yearbooks, uncertified autographs, programs, collector figures, cups, pins, and much other memorabilia. By the 2019 version that I recently purchased all of that had been removed and the type size has been greatly reduced to fit more columns per page and more years of card sets. Pretty much a card, or card-like, reference now. Still a lot of good information on obscure card sets. Some things like 1971 Topps coins are still included as of 2019.

Never toss old ones. Things drop in and out it seems, over the years. I have not bought any new ones is several years, but have some dating back to the 90s.
