How To Place An Order   Magazine Title Index   Magazine Condition Grading

 

While we actively purchase many magazine titles, we are currently ONLY purchasing specific, pre-1950 titles from local sources in the Southeastern Pennsylvania area – and have mountains of magazines awaiting sorting & listing.

 

Especially NO NATIONAL GEOGRAPHICS OR PLAYBOYS!!!

 

We would suggest Ebay, or Craig’s List as the best method to dispose of your magazine collections.

 

 

A NOTE ON MAGAZINE VALUES:

 

Of the magazines we purchase, approx. 90% will ultimately go unsold – so every magazine sold pays for 9 unsold issues.

Magazines purchased that were published after 1980 – about 95% to 98% will never sell.

We have to stock the full range of dates to ensure that specific issues are found for our customers.

 

Thus – in order to keep the business profitable – magazines are purchased at approx. 1/20th of retail value, sometimes less.
