Baby-sitters Collectors Club ad from book club pamphlet

Ad for the introductory pack of the reprint Collectors Club (circa 1998-2000)

The Baby-sitters Collectors Club was a subscription service fans could sign up for during the height of the series' popularity. Unlike the BSC Fan Club, in which subscribers were only sent newsletters and gifts, the collectors club enabled the subscriber to easily collect all the books in the series, in addition to receiving newsletters and gifts.

The Collectors club went through two iterations:

  • Circa 1990-1994 - The Collectors Club sent subscribers the books in their original published format, and ended in 1994 with Claudia and Crazy Peaches as the last numbered book sent out.
  • Circa 1997-2000 -The Collectors Club sent subscribers the books in their reprint form, and started in 1995 or later. The first book to be printed in the new design was book #89 Kristy and the Dirty Diapers, published in September 1995. After that date, all future BSC books would have the redesigned covers, and all earlier books would be reprinted with the new design. Scholastic School Market Editions of some later books (around #118-#128) included a color advertising insert for the Collectors Club.
