I recently obtained about 3 years worth of vintage Road & Track magazines at an estate sale. All magazines are from the mid 1950s.

Per new postal rules, magazines can no longer be mailed via Media Mail. Well, they could, but if the package is checked, you will receive a postage due notice, so I'll ship them legally. They will fit into a Flat Rate envelope though.
Buyer to pay $7.95 USPS insured Flat Rate Envelope delivery fees. Mailing is from Arizona.
SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
