242 Large National Geographic Collection looking to sell

I have recently inherited a collection of 242 National Geographic Magazines spanning 1966-2011 that I am looking to sell (individually or all together, I don't mind). It seems that the magazines aren't in high demand so if anyone could give me any tips on how/if there is a better place to sell them that would be great. Please message me if you have any interest. The details are as below:

National geographic collection

*some discolouring, especially amongst older magazines

*haven’t checked all but most posters (and any other paper pull outs) seem to be within the magazines, however they have been pulled out and are loose among the pages

*have pointed out all obvious damage or faults in description, however, I have not inspected each page of the magazines individually for every fault (faults were detected through picking up each magazine whilst sorting, which have been sorted twice)

*more dated books have general signs of age, such as fading, folds and wearing of paper, however, I have mentioned any more major signs of use in the descriptions

*I have sorted the magazines into years and months so if you have any questions about a specific copy then I am happy to answer
