Welcome to vecturist.com: The site for information about the American Vecturist Association
If you are a collector of Car Wash, Parking, or Transportation Tokens, you have come to the right place. Founded in 1948, the AVA is the oldest American organization of token collectors.
Joining the AVA simply involves completing a Membership Application. Once you join the AVA, you will receive:
- the Fare Box, the AVA's monthly newsletter containing articles, stories, and information about various tokens, want ads, auctions, for sale listings, supplemental information to the Atwood-Coffee Catalog, etc.
- a complete listing of all AVA members, putting you in touch with fellow collectors around the world.
- information about joining the AVA New Issue Service. With the New Issue Service, you will receive new tokens (usually every 4 to 8 weeks) at very reasonable prices.
- various AVA Catalogs that discuss parking, carwash, and transportation tokens available at large discounts off the regular price.
- an invitation to the AVA convention held in a different city every year. At the convention, you can attend exhibits and tours, buy, sell, and trade tokens, as well as attend the auction and the banquet.
