How to purchase the Rocketeers Collector's Journal
 
I've been getting many requests from people looking to buy a set of Danny Sagstetter's Rocketeer Collector's Journal. There are thirteen issues total in the set. Below is his correct, updated address so you can get a set for yourself. I got my own set a number of years ago and there's lots of great info in there.

ROCKETEER COLLECTOR's JOURNAL
c/ o Danny Sagstetter
6291 Newtown Drive
Columbus, Ohio 43231

The cost is $75 including postage within the continental United States. Any type of payment is accepted. If you live out of that area you'll want to contact him first to get the cost to ship to your location.

He will sign all issues for free if requested.

His email address is sagstetters@juno.com.

Rocketeers Collectors Journal is a must
 
I have the complete set now. Mr. Sagstetter was really nice and he mailed me the missing issue, so now I have the complete set.

Apparently the reason why he had stopped with the journal was due to the place he worked out of was broken into and damaged. So I was sad to hear that. The information in the journal for any collector or historian that loves this hobby, I think would love the information.

He did a great job with the journal.

Hello, I am new to this forum and was wondering if you would have any data as to the availability of this Journal. Is Mr. Sagstetter still accepting orders ? Thank you & Kind Regards.

Hello Molnaya,

SAME BAT TIME... SAME BAT CHANNEL!

The answer is yes he is still at the same address and stilling selling the journal. Just follow the instructions that you quoted, and within a couple of weeks, you will find his journals in your mail box. Very informative and worth the costs.

Excellent ! Thank you !

I recently ordered the RCJ set for my brother as a Christmas present. It arrived safe and sound within a week or two. I think he'll love it!

pterodactyl 01-11-2010 08:33 AM

Paypal option for RCJ?
 
This thread hasn't had an update for quite awhile.

Assuming this is still an active offer, does anybody know if Danny is accepting Paypal as payment for a set of his Rocketeers Collector's Journal?

Thanks,
P

I do know that Danny moved this past summer, but I don't have an address for him. I'll see if I can drop him a line via email and get updated info from.

I'd appreciate it, Earl. Find out if he's still selling this set and what the current cost is. If so, get his new address from him so I can update the info. I'll delete the thread if he's no longer selling it.

Thank you, Earl! If he no longer sells it, could you suggest to him that he could have the set printed-on-demand through CreateSpace www.createspace.com or Lulu.com www.lulu.com ? I think there are a lot of us BARs (and younger rocketeers who are interested in the history of the hobby) who would happily purchase the sets of the "Rocketeer Collector's Journal."

I sent Danny an email this eve to check status of his journal. Once he responds, I'll post back here. Hopefully it is still available or if not (as Blackshire suggested) he can have additional copies printed 'on demand'.

Thanks, Earl. I've updated the info in the original post.

Thank you very much, Earl! I just sent him $75.00 via PayPal for a set of the journal issues.

Yes, I plan on doing the same myself right away. Danny didn't say how many 'sets' he still had left, but I really do not want to miss out on a full set of the originals.

The Collectors Journal is Priceless
 
I just wanted to add that the Collectors Journal is a Gem. It would be cool if he could continue in some form or fasion. Even if it was just in a Blog format.

Thank you again for the Journal :)

Woody's Workshop 12-26-2016 01:40 PM

Perhaps it could be scanned in pdf and sold that way, maybe for less.
Than if anyone wanted a hard copy, they could just print it.
Originals would be sweet, but the info should not be lost.
I would like a set, but pdf copy would be fine with me.
It's the contents that's has value to me.

Rocketaholic 06-14-2017 11:49 AM

RCJ still available
 
I really enjoy having the complete rocket collector’s journal.

It is a real gem and still available for purchase.

Current address for the Journals is:

Danny Sagstetter
6291 Newtown Drive
Columbus, Ohio 43231
