1903 to 1962

All catalogs are not shown.  Heddon catalogs came in a few sizes throughout the years.  They were offered in a standard, later called Deluxe, with a size of 6-7/8" by 10" up until 1963.  After 1949 they also had a smaller size of 5" by 6-5/8" at the same time as the Deluxe catalogs, which were free.   They started to charge 25cts. for the Deluxe version, unless you bought something.   The trade catalogs that sporting goods and fishing stores received are typically marked as such.  These old catalogs are great for reference material on some of the lures and various other items offered throughout Heddon's history.

One of the reasons for showing all the old covers and page information, is to help collectors find that special catalog for their collection.  Many thanks to all the collectors who have helped with this page.

I am not perfect. If you see any mistakes, please email me.  The images are low resolution, but should give you a good idea.  My Color Guides are printed at a much higher resolution, which can be purchased.
