Finished Auction

Saw this a couple of days ago. Thought it would be nice to get a real nice copy of issue 1 since mine isn't the best. Even went a bit crazy at the end of the auction and bid a max of £40.50, but alas (or maybe a blessing in disguise!!) it went for £41.50.

I hope for the buyer that the description turns out to be true, how mint can something 22 :-o years old be...

You'd be surprised. I bought about 800 issues of 2000 AD recently, and many of the 1970s issues look like they've been read once or twice and that's it.

My cynical side says that this crease-less, "perfect" ZZAP! will probably be folded in transit by the postie... :wink:

Mort tried to get away with it, bidding a mere 11 quid. He-he. :D

Wonder if this one will be going for +1. :wink:

Sometimes you can get away with a sneaky low bid, and could do with a better condition issue 1 to rescan :-)

Maybe next time eh :-)

That thought definitely crossed my mind when bidding! If I won I was going to ask the seller to make sure it's wrapped in lots of thick cardboard!

I'm 22 years old, is that an implication? :wink:

But seriously I have some old Zzap! mags in me room and I'll have a lookie at the date etc. Since we got our Commodore in '89 they'll be 90s mags but still. If I remember though I think we have an uber old one. Though I'd never sell them because they're so much fun to read again, and since I still play my Commodores (incl. Amiga) I like to read them to see if the game is actually any good.

just flicking thro the site & decided to join as it was myself that sold that MINT Zzap issue 1.
It was a truly SPECTACULAR copy - only bettered by the as new copy i currently hold!! im a bit of a saddo inthat I am trying for the perfect collection, so I buy and sell a lot of zzap thro ebay
I bought this one in a bulk sale of 30mags - paid £40 for them all - dont think the seller realised what they had!! - I hung onto this for a while until I paid £35 for an even better copy.
so there you go!

I'm on the edge of that myself, but it could be a never ending quest. How do you know you have the complete collection. You could be missing an insert from the Home Computer Club in issue 60 for example. Could drive a man insane. x-)

Thats right, it was also given away with CRASH and AMTIX!
I would have loved to have seen the proofs for Issue Five of LM as it was (apparently) completed before they decided to axe the title.

My one went walkies and I had to eventually get another after a long time searching (the preview issue). I would still love to get the four issues of LM but no luck yet...
