National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

A dear friend of mine died last year, leaving me his collection. I do not have the room to keep them.

There are 10 storage totes and a box of maps. He had them all up on shelves in his living room and was very proud of them. I just cannot keep them. I would love to sell them as one lot.

I live in southern Indiana and with that many the buyer would need to come get them.

I know there is about 100 years, the earliest I have seen is 1913, I noticed doubles of several isues too. Most are in very good shape, I know it's probably not good the way I have them stacked in totes so it's best to find them a new home.

Is there anyone that would be interested in these?

I didn't know whether I should go through them and write down each issue or not, but I think it is a pretty good collection. There are also a few hard back books with them, indexes I believe. Im sorry if I sound vague, I just don't know much about them.

Thanks for any help you can send me.

Hi,

  I would love a hundred year set. What is your asking price? Have a great day!!! Mike O

I don't have any idea what they are worth , or what would be a fair price...so make me an offer. :) I would love for someone to have them that will enjoy them.

Is this a complete run with all the covers?

This is what I have,

I would love to have your collection.  I'm in Bancroft, Ontario, Canada, though.  Can you find out what shipping would be?  My address is R.R. #5, BANCROFT, Ontario Canada, K0L 1C0.

 

Thanks in advance!

I haven't checked on prices but I am sure that it would be cheaper to rent a U Haul trailer or rent a pick up truck to come and get them. There is about 1100 pieces, that's alot of weight to ship. I'm not sure, there may be moving companies that would haul them for you. I do hope someone will take them, we really need the room back.

I just checked U Haul website, you can rent a 4x8 cargo trailer for $14.95 a day. There is a U Haul site about 5 miles from me. http://www.uhaul.com/reservations/RatesTrailers.aspx

Where are you located?

French Lick, Indiana.....3 hours south of Indianapolis Indiana.

Hi, I live in Napanee, Ontario. I have a collection of National Geographic Magazines. Complete sets for 1976,77,78,79,81,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,89,90,91,92. I also have 1980 and 1993 but both are missing the July issue as well, I have the February 1981 special issue, A Special Report in Public Interest Energy.  I am interested in selling these magazines and they are in very good shape.

This is what I have, make me an offer and they are yours!
