Hi Bill

In 1999 I bought some off a guy south of London, he put them on ebay and they got no bids so I contacted him and made him an offer. There was virtually every one from about 73ish - 78ish all in great condition. Really interesting reading.

Unfortunately my missus got the hump when I turned up with a crate of old magazines so I sold them on as a job lot for about a quid a mag. I could probably have got more for them on eBay now, but there weren't as many people on it then and it would have been a shame to split them up. They went to a good home anyway.

If you don't know what they are worth and you don't know what to ask you might as well take Pete's offer whatever it is. He'll obviously make a profit on them cos that's business but at least you'll have them sold and I'm sure he won't be ripping you off.

Cheers

I thought £100 was a fair offer for that amount and I was gonna keep them anyway

I think that's pretty fair really.

BTW Pete, could I just ask you to please stop outbidding me on eBay, it just serves to remind me how tight I am. I was going to keep that Jerry Jackson too. :yes:

Oops sorry Paul. But my goodness you must be tight because I only bid just enough so I can add a bit of profit on top :yes:

anyone looking to fill any gaps post 1973 ish should try me, I have a lot of duplicates that if they are not in "a run of complete numbers" I can sell individually. a while since I looked through my stock of these but do have a large quantity.

thanks martin, redhill surrey, see Crawley Area Sunday Nights in event listings.
