I didn't have all of the early ones, but I gave mine to a new Forumite.

Go figure ;)

Those asking prices seem insane.

Lets hope they get their price, perhaps we can start a movement and I can sell my few for $100 each as antiques!

Between the postings and what's on ebay, you'd think that there was an underground market for back issues...

Actually I have seen something similar several times over the past years. I have also seen collections for sale in the back of Woodenboat.
Everyone probably knows they offer a digital collection of all the back issues. The sample they will let you download looked like pretty good quality.
I prefer the paper, but there is a charge for an index, which offended me.

So the Craigslist ones are 161 issues for $300 or less than $2 an issue, and the Kijiji are $350 (canadian) for 208 issues, just over$1.50 USD. Sounds like a bargain to me. I remember finding the first 75 issues at my local swap-shop. I thought that I'd hit the jackpot, and was sure I'd make money on them. Then I started to research the market......not much monetary value at all. They are a good read though!
