The first 5 years of Zzap64! including 4 binders and all 6 MegaTapes

It's time for me to let go of these Mags as I am heading out of the country and am in need of a plane ticket.

I have no idea of their value so I am hoping you will give me an idea or make me some offers.
I would rather try to sell it through forums before I try and put it on eBay (is that a good idea?)
I am in London and prefer collection as postage might be high.

- Includes 4 binders
- Includes Cover disks

Thank y'all in advance.

Well having them in binders will increase the value.

I had a look through eBay at the completed listings but no bigger collections were listed in the past while.

I seem to remember a collection of around 40 issues with binders going for around £120 not so long ago.

If you have them collection only that will mean you'll get less for them, although being in London should help in that regard!

What's the quality of the earlier issues like?

Thanks for the info Iain.

All the issues are in very good condition.

I could post them if I can find a reliable/guaranteed method.

I found the auction I was thinking of, back in April

eBay Auction

48 magazines in binders went for £142, was a bit more than I remembered actually.

Thanks once more Iain.

I think I will have to put them up on ebay and see how it goes.

Probably for the best. The forum here is a bit quiet these days, post the link here anyway.

Did you ever sell these?
I lost my entire Zzap64 collection when our house burned down a few years ago and I'd very much like to replace them and they brought me many hours of pleasant nostalgia!
If these are still for sale, or anyone has a collection they'd like to sell, please message me!

That's quite an initial price and not much time left on the auction. I'd recommend a lower starting point and longer auction.
