Scientific Americans (that's the magazine, not people) for sale

by Suw on June 1, 2004

Dad's been collecting copies of the Scientific American since May 67. For years they've been read and then carefully stored in the loft, doing nothing but gathering a bit of dust. Most of them are in immaculate condition, and from May 67 to Dec 03, there are only 21 issues missing – mostly because of non-deliveries.
Dad has nowhere to store them now, so they're for sale on eBay. I feel a bit sad – I would have liked to have been able to give them a home, but I don’t know where I’ll be moving to when I move from here, and it seems silly to cart about boxes and boxes of old magazines.
I do hope that someone who will get more out of them than I would will find them and buy them.

I think 75 is a bit low a price for a collection like that. As a collector of anything I feel sad as well. I hope the new owner(s) will be good collectors as well.

Well, yes, but then, they are only worth what someone will pay for them. I hope someone does eventually pay a bit more, but we'll have to see.
