Newly arrived today. IMO for the money, the TC 1st Choice and Owners Series are worth the $. I have only found one so far where I prefer the Action Elite over the TC (the Spencer KMart Taurus).
Team Caliber produced die-casts for select drivers from 1999 through 2006 when it was sold to Motorsports Authentics (current day Lionel).I still have not tried out a Preferred series yet. I need to pick one of those up along with a Pit Stop to check them out.
Persistence and patience is usually rewarded in this hobby ..... I ignore seller's who "fish" (list for high prices and never sell) on ebaY ... no cost to list and re-list and re-list and re-list and re-list ... no downside for them to "fish".Yep, it will take me awhile. And I really don’t want to spend over $100 for any, so that does mean some will be Owners Series instead ( good example is the Edwards WFG car; TCFC is too much for my budget, so I will find an OS instead).
