Collection Evaluation Services for Insurance
If you have an old collection of Playboy, Time, Life, Penthouse, etc. to insure or if you have lost the above in a fire or flood and need an evaluation, Magazine Memories offers that service.

Send us a list of your items to be insured or that have been lost and we will respond with a certified letter listing their value, (by decade, not by issue) within 10 days.

This is a valuable service, as insurance companies respect our expertise, never question our honesty or accuracy, and frequently call us themselves for evaluations. We charge $195.00 for this service and it must be prepaid.

You will find it is well worth it and your insurance company may reimburse your costs. Check with them and give us a call or have them call us directly. Ask for Bob Katzman. I will give you speedy, accurate, up-to-date values.

Want to create a great impression with a valuable client?
Instead of a dinner or a ball game, which they’ll forget about in a week, how about a Civil War newspaper?

Want to impress that client who’s a major sports buff?
Check out a Joe Dimaggio or Ted Williams or Michael Jordan Magazine Cover Story — a valuable treasure that your client will cherish and frame for all to see. Valuable treasures that your client will frame and see constantly. Then they are stuck with you! They won’t be able to separate the gift from the giver.

Want to surprise that client with a nostalgia for the good ole’ days?
How about a Playboy from when someone was born or graduated high school? A very unusual, and highly appreciated gift, that allows you to be creative and make a terrific impression! Your client will appreciate that you took the time to find something that connects to their lives.

Want a World Ward II gift for a veteran?
How about an issue of Life covering D-Day, June of 1944? There were three issues, a great gift for a military buff.

No matter what the occasion – Be original!Get an original!
