Hi my name is***** you for coming to Just Answer.
I will be glad to help you today.

I have been in the antique business for over 45 years, Appraising, Antique shop owner, also buying and selling on today's current market. it is my pleasure to put my experience to work for you.

Are you wanting to sell this collection in one lot? If so how many magazines do you have?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Selling management is not a preference. I can sell by a 1-year lot, 2-year lot, etc. Fifty years equals 600 plus magazines not to exclude annual magazines representing each year. I am 72 years of age, in fair-to-good health and look forward to selling these for a fair price and transferring the monies received to my cousin.Thanking you in advance for your timely reply and assistance,Catherine ***** *****

Hello Catherine,

I can give you an idea of what your magazines would sell for by the magazine on average, the more famous covers will of course sell for much more then you average Playboy. If a magazine has a famous person in it then it will sell for more.
