electronics catalogs

Hi there,
I know I could have posted this in the "Catalog of all semiconductor component datasheets" but I don't think there's as much visits to that part of the forum.

So here's my request: Do any of you techies have older catalogs from the likes of Newark, Digikey, Avnet, Electro-Sonic, etc from the eighties?

I realize I'mprobably the only person on the planet who hoardes this kind of stuff, but you never know.
(I am a collector and I need to know what was commercially available in that time '82-'89)

THANK YOU!

I used to save the old Allied, Newark, etc catalogs, but after multiple moves the past decades, most got tossed. I do keep various manufacturer's catalogs dating back decades, though, but I plan on keeping those to (hopefully) facilitate finding OEM specs for parts requiring replacement in Olde Gear that I have to repair/mod.

Best,

Bri
