This rocks, I'm total Frisbee hound, though I was never able to effectively play Ultimate due to the fact I can only toss it from one side (using all known grips). Darn.

Warning: When entering, you may be greeted by an annoying fanfare. Forgot to mention it last night. Sorry.

Nice little collection. Although it would've been nicer had they left out the corporate insults to disc culture, like the eBay disc.

It's also a little heavy on the Wham-Os. Sure, we have them to thank for the whole idea of the FrisbeeĀ®, but Discraft discs have been the standard in international Ultimate competition for twenty or so years. (I think a couple of the discs were actually Discrafts, but it wasn't mentioned in the blurb, and I couldn't make out the manufacturer's stamp on the rim.)

Also, some more modern discs would have been nicer. The display makes Ultimate seem like a thing of the past. There are some really impressive designs from recent years.

Still, I enjoyed the vintage walkthrough. Thanks!

Sorry, it's actually been just over ten years. Who knew?
