National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Hi 'Corner, 

Has anybody been saving the inserts that have been coming inside each month's NGM? 

I mean the ones related to books, wine, mini-Christmas catalogs, etc. NOT the address slips.

I'm just curious. Since this became a monthly thing circa latter 2014, I have saved each month, but they got disorganized and now I do not know which came in which month/year. 

* they do have year copyright printed, but not to the month delivered. There's been about 3 duplicates, all the rest have been one-time issued.

As a rule, I through out the inserts.  I'm swimming in paper anyway and IF they ever become collectibles, there will be plenty available for the limited numbers of collectors interested in them.  There was one exception.

I do save the Winter Catalogs.  I just love the covers.  I received in the mail a mini-catalog, a little larger and thicker than an insert.  Around a month or so later, there was an insert almost identical to the catalog.  Here they are with the smaller item being the insert.


I didn't get either one of those! 


I have a listing of all of those.  I also have a listing of all the "blow-ins inserted in the magazines since they started doing that in the 80's or 90's.  I can e-mail them to you.


Hi Jeff,

Yes, I would be very interested in seeing that and knowing it for reference. I am at:
