I bought twenty or thirty issues, from say, #50 to #75 about 15 years ago for $5 each at my local comic store. I got a great deal. I was at Wondercon this past April and picked about about 12 Mads, all the ones I needed to fill in from about #50 to #100 for $4 each. Again, I got a great deal. But I got them at about the cost of a copy of Mad off the newstands. I could hardly believe it. I may have mentioned that I saw a waterstained #24 on ebay passed up at $9.95 then go when it was put up a second time, for $20. I bought my #24 for just under $60 in about VG. Mad was a very influential magazine. I can hardly believe that so few people are paying attention to it these days.
