MAGAZINE GRADING SYSTEM
NM=Near Mint- The highest grade that we offer for sale. Essentially flawless copies with little or no evidence of ever having been handled or read. The very finest copies available anywhere!
VF/VF+=Very Fine/Very Fine Plus- Perhaps one or two VERY MINOR flaws often times from original bundling and shipping. Magazines in this grade are certain to enhance any collection.
F/F+=Fine/Fine Plus- The most popular grade. Used copies that have been handled carefully, have been well protected and preserved with no outstanding flaws. Well above average condition.
VG+=Very Good Plus- Just a bit short of Fine grade (in many cases it's hard to tell the difference) and priced accordingly. Many collectors consider this grade to be the best value-collector quality without paying for near perfection.
VG=Very Good- Obviously used copies with minor flaws such as corner creases, some light cover soiling or rubbing, a small staple tear, etc. Overall these are above average condition and do have collector value.
G= Good - Average well-read copies. These are complete and unmutilated but have some or all of the usual defects such as rubbing or soiled covers, creases, spine wear, etc. These make excellent reading or "filler" copies, but with the exception of the early issues (1953-1963) they have minimal collector value.
Note: If the grade of magazine you order is not available, your magazine will automatically be upgraded to the next available grade. (i.e. If you order a magazine in Good condition but none are available you will receive one in Very Good condition).
Magazines that are incomplete in any way, have large tears or taping, broken or rusty staples, extensive spine wear, moisture damage, etc. are considered "fair" or "poor" and belong in the trashcan!
All of our magazines are in Good condition or better, and they are stored and shipped in plastic magazine bags with non-acidic backboards.
Grab Bag - You will receive an issue anywhere from Good to Near Mint depending on what we have in stock. Not all issues ordered in Grab Bag condition will be stored and shipped in plastic magazine bags.

You can call us toll-free at (866) 966-3226 with any questions you may have. We are open 24/7 and we can process credit card orders over the phone. An 866 number is exactly the same as an 800 number. It is a toll-free line. No long distance charges will apply within the US and Canada. This number does not work for international callers. If you are calling from outside of the US or Canada you will have to dial (514) 421-9663 and long distance charges will apply.
