I don't know how many of you are magazines collectors, but I used to be, at least in my country. However, I just found out some pics with some old bodybuilding magazines from the 50's that thought that it would be cool to share.

I too collect old magazines, but nowadays my budget is very tight. There are a lot of ebay sellers, but their prices are more for the American buyers (or for the buyers from the Western Europe). I really can't afford to pay more than $25 per magazine (plus shipping), no matter how cool it is.

Very cool. I have collected them on and off over the years and have some old ones from the 1940s.

Just go to ebay.com and you'll find a lot. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures with my collection, as they are at home, 300 km away and my dad isn't really good with smartphones.

But my favorite magazine is an old one signed by the legend, Mike Mentzer himself.
