he should have done it a few months down the line, I think like Zzap! 107 they will get some good value as the months roll on

£1.75 for postage! :shock:

My estimation would be about 70p at the very most!

It does seem a bit silly selling it now, especially when they are still availible from Live Publishing. :roll:

aaaaaaaaaaaand we have a bidder! 8)
A guy who seems to buy all kinds of Newsfield mags recently (looking at his history) not such a smart guy then. :)

Let's see where it ends then...or should we start a bidding war and pump the price up to zillions? :wink:

Not so smart at all, seeing as with postage, it's already costing him £1.75 more than it would from Live.

It's really starting to annoy me the way sellers rip you off by charging way over the top P&P :(

I always add some contingency to my P&P rates, but not that much. I guess that many sellers try to recoup eBay and PayPal fees via the P&P, despite that being strictly against eBay's rules.

I saw that auction as another of the seller's ones when I doscovered he was selling the Def Tribute, but didn't look at it closely until now.

Surely it is against eBay rules to use them as an advertising medium! :)

The last issue of Retro Gamer with the Def Tribute just went for £20 on eBay. Kinda mad since the mag is probably still on the shelves in some places.

If the magazine doesn't make it back, I guess prices will continue to head north for some time!

There's already a few people on the Retro Survival forum talking about selling their RG collections - bit daft really, as there are going to be loads on eBay and the prices won't probably go too high.

it is mad they're selling them now...these retro issues in say twenty years down the line could be even more valuable than even issue 1 is now, it won't even take that long... especially the even rarer iss107 which i missed out on :cry:

does anyone have a spare copy for sale btw?...or have i missed the boat now :cry:
