Want to donate some magazines, but some are in... less than stellar condition. Need guidance

Recommended Posts

Hello, Retromags community!

I've finally decided to get off my butt and get rid of some old video game magazines and strategy guides I've had laying around for years and have no use for any longer. However, I wasn't sure about just tossing them or dumping them at a retro game store, so I looked to see if there was someplace that would specifically accept video game magazines, and I discovered this site. Since some of what I have is marked as "missing", I wanted to see if I could donate these. However, some of the issues I have are... less than perfect.  I want to know if I should even bother sending these to others to scan in, or if I should just chuck them.

The following issues are the ones that have some hiccups:

  • Official US Playstation Magazine 96 - Pages 49-50 have a part clipped out of it, but otherwise is OK.
  • GamePro #154 – This has clippings on some pages (23-24, 37-38, 87-88, 115-116), and the front and back covers are also missing pieces.

  • Ultra Game Players #91 – Some pages have checkmarks/circles on them to mark games I had wanted at the time. Some of these titles were later scribbled through (mainly on the pages advertising mail-order stores like Chips and Bits).

If these are unacceptable, please let me know and I'll withhold them from the rest of the donations I have.  I'd really appreciate any help on this.  Thanks!

Run the name of the mags through E-Day. He's has a massive collection of mags on queue to be scanned. Are you looking for money or is this a free donation? Also can we get some pics to see the condition of these mags.

Hi, thanks for the response.  I will PM him directly.  Not looking for any money for these; I'm willing to pay for postage to send these wherever.

As for pics, I uploaded them here:
