Is there a database where collectors can see the production of magazines, special issues, etc?? Wouldn't it be nice to see the history and production year by year? Maybe someone created a website.…Continue

The 1988 earth magazine has to be the most sensitive magazine ever produced by National Geographic. The holographic cover makes this book prone to scratches, dings, and bends. There appears to be ink…Continue

How do you store your Nat Geo magazines?

You may store your magazines in an original slipcase and that's perfectly fine. Perhaps you have a set in a year that is in "not so good condition," but there is one book in flawless condition. The next time you pull that book from the slipcase to…See More

"Look for the National Geographic Collector's Guides by Edwin Buxbaum, from 1934, 1952, 1966, and 1971. Also Roger Nathans "Collectibles of National Geographic Society" from 1982.  There's also some self-published booklets…"

"So that copy in the image you cop[y/pasted from eBay is either a 1964 or 1975 REPRINT COPY .... not original.  That asking price $$ is beyond absurd, LOL."

"Whithout being an expert, it's hard to tell whats what. Like this listing on ebay. Did Nat Geo make this reprint? If so, when? How many copies were issued, etc... Doesn't seem like enough information channels it there's. This book…"

"Yes sir! How many copies were produced. One would think during economic times etc...they would not always produce the same number of copies every year; Perhaps, even supply and demand."

National Geographic Worthless!

I want to post this because it's true. National Geographic magazines appear to be worthless because people to not value artwork, photography, and education of the world. It amazes me, before internet, the world news was encompassed in these magazines including world events to what we call "Google Maps", today and I believe it will take time for the generations of new age technology and media news to appreciate the old way. The numbers of magaizines produced were around 5,000,000 per copy?…See More

"Thanks for the clarification. I remember at some point on the 'Corner, Cathy Hunter was talking about the files they have about trying to make this issue . . . problems w/ the strike plates and such. Anyway, somehow I have a gold one. "

"If you notice, the flaws were there on both of these prototypes even before the issue went into production."

"According to the late Jim Persons, there weren't two versions sent out.  The gold version was inhouse.  They were trying to decide which version to use and thought that the silver version was better."

About Me:
I grew up collecting coins and baseball cards. I have acquired a taste for quality; therefore, I have peaked an interest in collecting the Nat Geo books because the company has been running continuous for a very long time. There seems to be plenty to go around which make collecting still fun and not so much about money like the other hobbies.
Favorite National Geographic publication:
1969 Apollo 11
Favorite travel destination:
Texas

Beautiful! I have a copy sitting in the hands of CGC grading right now. They are backlogged and will probably take 6 months to get it back. Complete/with record.
