Game Magazines 1982-2009: EGM, Atari Age, TurboGrafx, Electronic Fun & MORE

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm letting go of my extensive gaming magazine collection. These magazines cover the classic to modern era of games, from 1983 to 2009. Some of them are extremely rare, obscure and tough to find. Also included below are some rare tradeshow newsletters, etc. from classic CES and E3 tradeshows.

 

Most issues are in Very Good to Near Mint condition, but please let me know which specific magazines you're interested in and I can evaluate them more thoroughly. In all cases unless otherwise noted, all of the original contents are present (pull-out posters, attached inserts, catalogs, etc.). Bulk Discount: orders over $50 receive $5 off, orders over $80 receive $10 off, orders over $105 receive $15 off!

 

Prices are listed below. There is a minimum order cost of $18.00 (before shipping charge) per order. Shipping is via either USPS Priority, First Class or Media Mail depending on weight of overall order & preference of buyer. Delivery Confirmation is included but Insurance is additional. Payment is accepted via PayPal Gift Payment.

 

Okay, enough with the fine print! Photos of the rare stuff are coming soon. PM me with questions!

Do you have any of the Sega Challenge/Team Sega newsletters? I am in need of issue #1 and #7.

 

I believe I've got issues 4 though 7, but they are in storage - across the country. I will be going back for a visit this summer though, so I'll see what I can find.

Phew good luck on those! Took me forever to complete that set, especially the one that comes with the patch.

I completed the set in 1989, but some were damaged due to water. All I really need is the first and last issue.

Will definitely update once I track down the Master System Newsletters, but that won't be for a few months...
