Magazines are very cool just for product advertising alone. Last year I spent $60 just for shipping to get a 100+ old MacWorld and MacUser magazines from 1989-1995 and it was worth it. Scanning all those magazines in would be way too much effort.
I would love to have a bunch of Amiga related magazines from the late 1980's to maybe 1993 when Amiga went bust to see all the hardware and software I never heard off.
If you ever get the chance to snag a few old Mags please do so, they are more interesting to read now then they were back when published.
