We only show links to sites that will be helpful to you as a collector. If you are going to purchase any item from any dealer who makes any claim to belong to any Association, then always check that they are members first. Some dealers will claim to be members of Associations, when they are not, others will even make up an Association to give them more credibility. So always double check any claims, and if you can't confirm their membership with the Association, or find that the Association does not exist, or appears to perhaps only have one member, then simply avoid them!
