Amiga Format / Shopper Magazines

Hi,

Just going through my loft and I have found a number of Amiga Format and Amiga Shopper magazines.

Is there any demand / value for these?

Any issues that came with disks will now be without.

Thanks

I would say not. I put a whole load of Amiga Formats (Issues from 1988 to 1994) on Ebay a couple of years ago when I was moving house, with no reserve. A small number sold for 1 (which only just about covered postage) but most didn't get a single bid. I seem to remember the ones that sold were the bumper Christmas issues and the Annuals/specials. I ended up mailing them out for free to people who bought other mags from me!
No idea about Amiga Shopper but as it was a lot less well liked than AF at the time, I would guess no...

I'm not far from Bedford (I'm just outside Cambridge) and might be interested in some/all, to scan to PDF. Cheers!

Ah, I'm looking for some Amiga Format issues 65+. The Shoppers I'm less bothered about, by themselves. Thanks though!

I agree they won't fetch a great deal on Ebay, but if you can offer to post them (e.g., by hermes via a broker like interparcel) for reasonable price (about a tenner), you might get some bids on them as a job lot. You might get even more selling them individually, but it's a lot of hassle doing loads of listings for a few measly quid!
