Possibility 1

I probably would have shown you – they are in the front of the storage unit – GW’s box of REALIST magazine – each in a brown paper envelope, addressed to him at Walgrove, from around the same time as the Realist was winding down. See the ebay link above. THe challenge is I would have to take each of ~ 100+ issues out of their envelopes to see exactly what issues there were. The whole box (or 2? – it’s raining here today) weighs at least 25 lbs. Some day when I feel like it I could take it to the shipping store near Safeway & ask them how much to send via Fedex xor UPS somewhere – just to find out how much it really weighs. May grab a sample the next time I am up there.

Actually some are colored.
Got 2 boxes including other stuff:

  • A dozen old copies of The Realist from the 60’s – I do have this one in fine condition no tear (***) #74
nice stuff. Requires inventory & mining to see what’s there ~ 30 lbs loose.

Samples from: (***) ← google image search for the disney orgy

You could put the box on a bathroom scale, i could tell you how much it costs via FedX … which is almost certainly less the UPS.

looks like #74 is the coveted one … going from $165 – $250 null

… it will be interesting what price you get for the lot ...

I haven’t packaged it yet maybe later.  The box is later for the Screw magazine.  I may break them down instead of trying to sell them all at once.
