Default Book pricing?

I don't know if anyone on here would know this, but what would my collection of Reader'* Digest'* be worth? MOst are in fairly great shape and a few have water damage. The years range from 1948-1970 and I have about 120 of them.

I assume we're talking about the hard-bound story collections here?
Hate to say it but probably zilch. They printed literally tens of thousands of copies of each of those books, and you can pick them up for pennies at used book stores.
We used to have an entire bookshelf full of them, and Half-Price Books wouldn't even look at them.
If we're talking magazines, you might get a little for the oldest ones, but most likely not.

No they are the regular magazines. I did some research and found I can sell them for about 1.50-2.00 a piece.

Wow, I didn't realize they were that much of a thing anymore. You wouldn't think that they'd fetch that much considering how big their print-runs were.

Oh yeah, my aunt told me that they are quite popular. I am just trying to sell them for money for my car. They were passed down and given to me.
