​I am retiring this year.  We are selling our house, moving into a 37' fifth wheel trailer, and touring the country.  I have reserved space for a slot car box and a small box for controllers and essential tools, but everything else is going, as are my full size cars and all our furniture.  What doesn't sell will either go to the thrift store or dump.  My club track is sold and will be moved next month. 

 

Today I came to my large box with all the slot car magazines (and a few related racing mags) that I have accumulated over the years.  If I count right, there are 92 issues.  There are AutoWorld catalogs from the 70s, Scale Auto Racing news from the 80s and 90s, right up to the most recent slot car mag, the last one still in the wrapper.

 

My goal would be to sell these either as one giant lot or in sections.  I was thinking $100 for the entire lot ($5 to Slot Blog, the rest to me) plus shipping, which will probably be in a flat rate box unless I can figure out a cheaper way to mail.  See the groupings below.  One is a book, one is a calendar,  a few are catalogs, the rest are magazines.

Sam -

The reaction seems to be about equally split between "I'm envious" and "You're crazy." I do admit to being nervous about moving from 4000 square feet to 300. But there are so many places to see with so little time. We put a map on the wall with sticky notes as to where we want to go. Lets just say it will take more than a couple of years to get to them all.

Rick--

​It will cost about $6 to mail them.  How about $15 total price, including the shipping?
