    Default Curious if their is any interest in older gaming magazines

    Particularly Nintendo Power from around 2002-2007 and then random Game Pro issues from 1996 and 1998 there also might be some issues from 1999 and 2000 mixed in there also so yeah currently not selling any just was trying to see if people actually want these things at all thanks

    Yes there are, but the best place to make a sale thread about them might be NintendoAge as you have multiple people collecting the issues there. I on the other hand am waiting for retromags to finish making the scans for digital copy archives. It all depends on how much room anyone has really. Some people like to collect them, some people don't make room for them.

    I'm a collector, but only to a certain extent.
    Not as extreme as Rickstilwell though.[/quote]

    That's what some people list them for on ebay. When I sold mine I just wanted to sell them all at once to make room and bundled them. The packages were really heavy so I used flat rate priority mail to reduce shipping costs to the buyer, increasing my chances of selling them. In your case, selling them one by one you could just ship them cheap in a large envelope. People trying to complete collections with missing issues would buy just one if you had the right one. But in doing so, you lose the buyers who want the full year by year sets at once.

    If you want to sell them as a lot you're going to have to include some discount. No one is going to buy a lot of magazines that cost a sum of their single issue prices.
