Hello Beth,My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.We ordinarily answer just one question per request. I'll be happy to do your Playboys, unless you want me to do the Underground comics instead.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Playboy first please.
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 6 months ago.
Please understand before we begin that I am only valuing your Playboys. For the Underground Comix, you'll have to open another question. Now I need the date and condition of each of your Playboys.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
They are from 1959,1960-1970
They are in 'good' condition.
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 6 months ago.
Beth, I need you to list each one, with its exact date and its condition. In order to give you the values, I have to know what you have.
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
There are over 300. I want to sell as a group. I can't list all here. Just need to know where I can sell these please

March 1959 vol6#2,3,5,6,7,8,9,10,11...
All in very good condition. Covers are good.
Expert:  Judith-on-Antiques replied 6 months ago.
If you want to sell them as a group, I recommend selling them locally. You can advertise on craigslist.com (free) or in your local newspaper. You can also post notices on supermarket bulletin boards, or take them to a local antiques show and offer them to the paper dealers there (be discreet - the show promoters don't like outsiders selling at their shows).You might also try the bulletin boards of English and Art departments at a local college. As a group, you can probably expect to get approximately $600 for the lot. I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Beth.If you have any further questions or problems concerning this answer, please let me know.If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again.
