The Collecting Vintage Magazines page is one of the most popular on Magforum and the popularity of the hobby is reflected by the growth of magazine sales on Ebay. I’m just doing the latest analysis, which includes the following findings:
- June 2012, number of live listings in the UK: 148,950
- Dec 2010: 98,095
- Mar 2007: 29,425
So, in the past 18 months, the number of magazines listed has jumped by half.
Of the top 50 most expensive items, only 3 actually sold. The dearest was a near-complete set of Motor Racing for £560 – it had 25 bidders. The most expensive single magazine was issue 4 of OZ.
I’ll be updating be Magforum page next week.
