Lone Ranger & Tonto Collectibles
In 1949, just as a new
technology called television was first emerging, Clayton Moore and Jay
Silverheels, landed the rolls that would bring them fame and
immortality. With Clayton as "The Masked Man" and Jay as his faithful Indian companion, the duo of justice thundered out of the old west and into living rooms across suburbia.
The popularity of the characters in the 1950s was amazing as millions of youngsters learned the concepts of justice, fairness and integrity through the small screen. Adoring fans of the Hollywood western series showed their adulation by purchasing anything marked Lone Ranger. There where masks, pearl handled cap pistols, white cowboy hats, imitation silver bullets, cereal premiums, comic books, lunch boxes, trading cards and an astounding array of logo toys that sold by the millions.Today those logo items are cherished and sought after by enthusiasts around the world. The market for Lone Ranger collectibles has become very active, as many of the same fans that grew up with Clayton Moore and Jay Silverheels as their cowboy heroes in the fifties are now avid collectors. Add to that, the fact that many of those same items are now truly rare, and you can see why collecting vintage Lone Ranger and Tonto merchandise has become a smart collectible investment area.

Some of the more common items, such as badges and coloring books can readily be found for under $30, while the harder to find collectibles like the Esquire Tonto Indian costume set have been known to command prices over $500, in excellent condition.
