National Geographic's Collectors Corner

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

Hi everyone, I have a massive aeroplane globe binding National Geographic collection that I'm looking to get its value and hopefully sell. I believe these are reprints. All have supplements, maps etc and are in very good condition. I have attached photos if anyone can direct me in its value. Thanks kindly,

Ok thank you. its all very new and confusing to me. I'm going to try and sell the whole set first, maybe on Ebay. I still don't know what yo ask or expect from these.

A new collector would ask the same questions I've been asking and would probably want to feel reassured of exactly what they are purchasing.

A complete inventory matching supplements to monthly issues and knowledge of the first 18 volumes as reprints or originals would assist you (very time consuming).

There is a dealer directory at the top left margin of the home page of this web site. Perhaps one of them would make you an offer.

Because your set is bound completely in the airplane globe leather binding (a very impressive collection), if it were complete, even with the first 18 volumes as "rebound" 1964 reprints, I would consider a value, at a minimum of $3000.00.

But this is "only if" all the above is correct.

You may try listing it at this price with a best offer option for a few months (the market is extremely slow at this time for NGM - bound or otherwise) knowing a minimum price you will accept before reducing your asking price/best price offerings.

Note, as I stated in my guideline, dealers will offer far less than you can get on eBay, but the disposition of your collection will be immediate.

Good luck!


Thank you! Doug just wrote me back and told me same price there abouts. So I feel confident with that. Ebay takes such enormous fees so maybe I will try this site first. Thanks again!!
