FS: 290 Nintendo Power Magazines. $2/issue meetup near SE Michigan. PENDING


Recommended Posts



I am downsizing some things and looking to sell roughly 200 NP magazines but not sure what the interest is for these.  I would like to do local pickup.  I am in SE Michigan and I frequently visit family NE Ohio.  Willing to meet halfway for people in IN or Chicago area.  I am open to shipping but only if a deal doesn't materialize in the coming weeks.

There are some duplicates.  They are in varying condition from fair to great.  Looking to sell all at once for $580 total ($2 per issue) OBO as I would just like them gone.  Not interested in selling 1-2 per person as I dont have the time to ship out atm.

Lastly, if anyone knows the best way to ship these in a lot, I would welcome the advice!  

For the list below, I tried to detail anything included beyond the poster and notate any missing items I noticed (if something was included and  it listed below, assume it is missing).  Most issues have the players polls but I did not track those.  Some issues have a small tear on the cover from re.kval of shipping labels (some issues include old shipping labels as well).  The first section has the poster included for all issues, next is the issues missing posters (Nintendo mostly disco tinued posters after issue #227 so many of those fall under the Ni Poster category), then I list odds and ends.

I got a similar issue, eventually I need to down size my Nintendo powers too. If the sale goes well let me know how it went would definitely like to know their’s still interest for Gaming magazines.

Good luck with the sale, hope you find a good home for them.

I would be curious what a lot of NP go for.  I wouldn't mind a chunk of the N64/GameCube era.

I've been leisurely collecting them for a year or two now, but personally I go for the cheapest ones I can find and pick them up often single issues, or maybe a lot of 3-5 issues at a time. Having done it this way, I've been paying like ~$4/issue. Though that means some of them are fairly beat up; some are missing posters/etc. I'm okay with that, as I'm more about reading them anyway, so posters are just a nice extra if they happen to be included. Obviously at some point I'll be left with just the pricier issues to pick up - #1 and #285 being the two big outliers. Anyway, my totally unscientific research seems to say that the N64 era is some of the cheaper and easier to find issues.

I have quite a few from that time period.  I can PM you when I have it cataloged.  Do you live anywhere near MI?

I'm west of Cleveland.  I head up to the Port Clinton/Marblehead area often enough as well.  If you are cataloging anyhow a PM would be great.  I can run it by my wife and gauge her interest.

Ok great, I added a detailed list above.  Ideally I would like to sell all at once but I may be open to selling a chunk of issues at once.  I have family on the West side of CLE as well that I visit frequently.

Do you have a minimum in mind for how many you would sell as a chunk?  I have a feeling we would be looking for fewer than you would be looking to sell at once.

Not at the moment, ideally one bulk sale will work out.  How many were you thinking?  Feel free to PM me with details.


If I need to start separating it out and worry about making multiple meetups happen and/or shipping then the price of $2/issue also goes up.  


For someone to get these there is definitely lots of resell potential of you have the time and energy to make listings.
