This first Pertwee annual was sold at Christmas 1970 – for the year 1971 and is referred by collectors to as 1970, or 1971 or the Pink annual.
With these early DR Who annuals prices reach a premium in relation to the condition – collectors want NO gift inscriptions, NO scribble, NO puzzles filled in (in pencil – then rubbed out or heaven forbid BIRO !). Also annuals were prone to being price clipped – which often happened immediately after the Christmas period, when they were heavily discounted. Also annuals printed by World Distributors were prone to splitting along the spines – especially at the top or bottom – or both. See individual descriptions for any faults – or lack of them !
