Thank you for your interest in our magazines.
Let me start by saying that we offer a full money back guarantee on our magazines if you are not completely satisfied.
Now that that is out of the way, I will tell you about our magazines. First of all I get asked all the time if they are original, to be honest with you I have never seen or heard of a reproduction. There might be some somewhere but ours are absolutely the original complete issues. Most of these I have rescued from homes and attics all over the country and I am happy to give them new life, (no pun intended). Many of them have been in stacks in "Grandmas" attic or closet since around the time they were printed.
As far as condition goes, we try our absolute hardest to get the best magazines we can and many of the issues we sell all but look brand new. It really amazes me sometimes when I go to buy them and I open a box or look on a shelf and they look like the day they were placed there so many years ago. Not all of the ones we sell of course are like new but are in very nice shape. I have never judged magazines by the official rating method of Fine, Extra-Fine, Near-Mint and so on. I have always rated them on a scale of 1 to 10. I find most people are more comfortable with this and most customers are just buying them for a birthday present and really don't need to get too technical.
Sometimes we maybe only have one or two issues for a certain date, in this case I keep a couple of issues that are of lesser quality and offer them to the customer at a greatly reduced price before I tell them that we are temporarily out of stock on that issue. Some people are happy with it and also like the reduced price and some people want to wait and get a better one. At that point I put that customer an a want list and contact them when we get that issue back in stock in great shape. I only run the customers credit card if we actually have the magazine in stock. We have over 25,000 issues in stock but some issues are in high demand and we struggle to keep them in stock. If this is the case, you will see it marked "Out Of Stock". When this is the case you will have the opportunity to choose the issue just before or just after. Sometimes this will work for a birthday.
If the issue that is out of stock is the only one that will work, you will have the opportunity to add your name to the wish list.
We then notify you as son as we get that issue back in stock.
I look forward to making you the proud recepient of A Gift of a LIFEtime.
