National Geographic's Collectors Corner

Collaborative site for collectors, dealers, & anyone interested in our history.

I have an entire collection from 1936 to present day that I am trying to determine a value and/or locate a potential buyer?  Any ideas, suggestions, or interest out there?

Based on figures from this site (compiled by Melvin De Vilbiss) the value of individual  magazines in VG condition by decade (sliding scale downward as you reach the end of the decade):  is:

1930 - $10

1940 - $7.50 (with war years sometimes asking more)

1950 - $5

1960 - $2

1970 - $.50

These figures are baesd on  E-Bay sales of Nat Geo magazines. I hope this gives you a ball park figure of your magazines value..... E-Bay would probably be your best place to try to sell your collection because of its relative newness (1930's  and up)
