Mon Ciné Magazine Collection

Postby SVAZZO » 17 Feb 2011 17:53

Hello everyone!
Glad I found this forum... I have been looking for a place to ask a few questions about my Mon Ciné magazine collection.
I have every issue of Mon Ciné in bound hard covers (for every year), from the 1st issue in 1922 to the year 1930. Looking through your website I also saw you have a lot of missing covers which I have and would like to post them, but that is another issue...

Anyway, my questions are, #1 How much would an entire collection that spans over 10 years would be worth (they are all in excellent condition)?

Also, if the value is more in the fact they are all together and the information inside, do you think it would be best for me to put them on sale at a Hollywood Movie Memorabilia sale? or maybe donate them to a College? I am a little torn because of 2 things, I love owning them and looking at the old movie stars, but even though I would love read them all cover to cover, I do not know French. Right now they are at my house collecting dust and even though I open them up from time to time to look at the photos and all that, they really would be in a better place where someone can actually read them or study them.

Anyone have an idea of what a collection like that would be worth? any opinions on what I should do with them?
Any information and thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you
Svazzo

p.s. Can you guys let me know if you are interested in the missing covers for the archive?

Hello Svazzo,
Thanks for your message.

The Site of Movie Magazines was made by me 13 years ago
and it keeps going with the efforts of contributors.
We have fun offering info, covers etc. to the world.
(just 3-4 amateurs that love movie magazines).
I 'm trying to say that I'm not expert but here is my opinion anyway:

How much would an entire collection that spans over 10 years would be worth?

- For me it's priceless, but if we are talking about money,
there must be around 400 issues, $5 per issue is reasonable, $2.000 total(?).

But who is going to give $2.000 for the entire collection?
Maybe in France but in America?

would be best for me to put them on sale at a Hollywood Movie Memorabilia sale?

There is a very good list with stores here:

And ebay is always a good choise to sell something.

or maybe donate them to a College?

- I can only speak of my collection.
Around 4.000 various issues now.
They will go to the Greek Cinema Center or to the
Greek Cinematheque or something like that (I'm Greek).
I only hope that will happen in half a century from now (I'm 45 y.o.). :D

Can you guys let me know if you are interested in the missing covers for the archive?

- It is great joy for me when ever I get a submission of a cover.
I'm copying from the site:
"You can send covers from movie magazines to mike5565@hotmail.com
(.jpg, less than 300MB each are perfect but any cover I don't have is OK)."
I 'm uploading all the covers I get to the site
and put a name in the magazine's page for the contributor
(any name you want).
