View Full Version : What do you think this mag is worth?


Can't buy anything here

Okay so I worked security at another Hollywood Collector show this weekend....Burt Ward and Adam West were the big draws and were raking in the dough. Signed pics were 30 bucks and their signature on any poster or toy people had with them fetched another 30. I'd say Batman pulled down 20 grand easy today as the line never seemed to end. I hung out by them and when I got the chance, I slipped my mag in front of Adam as a joke...he was a bit shocked but then he signed it...as did Burt. And luckily, neither one charged me...wonder what this 10 rounder is worth now...:)

BTW, memorabilia is worth much more signed with just an autograph and not personalized with "To anyone". Adam West's manager wouldn't let him sign anything with just his name without doubling the price...luckily, he didn't write "To Dave" on it, otherwise, the value would be shot. Then again, who would pay for an autographed P2000 mag?

Since you are really the only one who is 100% sure they are real autographs and you have a personal story to go with it, it's worth more to you than anyone else.

Unfortunately, to many not much.

To a huge fan of the original Bat Man tv show, who owns a P2000 in a mag capacity limited state. Maybe Priceless.

Cool story though and I finally get a reason to use this smiley :batman:

I'd pay around 40 shipped and use it as a gift for someone. Just my opinion...

Honestly, with the story and everything I might actually put in a case or frame it. I am a huge fan and this is pretty awesome.

If you have *any* documentation to prove you were working at that event AND also documentation that Adam West & Burt Ward were at that event - I would keep it all together. The ideal situation is when you have a picture of you, them AND the item they signed at the event where it was signed. That's where having a partner with you at signing events really helps.

I have no idea what something like that would be worth - but I suspect it's probably less than a signed "batarang"... :p

It would be better if batman actually used guns.

good advise.

also... do not put any type of "permanent" protective agent over the signatures; keep as original.

I vote for framing it and keeping it out as a conversation piece. Kind of a test for guests to see if they're gun folk. If they aren't, it's a piece of metal; otherwise, it's a signed mag. Either way, cool for you.

And if you're inclined to sell it, it just takes one wacky person to make it worth a lot. I don't think ebay takes mags, but plenty of other auction sites do. If you disassemble it, maybe its no longer a mag, but memorabilia.

clear coating autographs makes them basically worthless.. not sure why but thats what ive been told many times by a few local collectors of this and that..

Now that magazine can't be used anymore, because it has "collector value!" ;)

I agree with CSACANNONEER, in that sentimentally, there's no one else in the world more likely to appreciate that autographed magazine other than yourself.

It's difficult to estimate a monetary value on said magazine, but you'd be lucky to get $50 for it.

Just keep the damn thing, and use it for range plinking and use it to strike up "cool story bro" conversations with people.

I know exactly how much it is worth.


It's only worth as much as someone will pay you for it.
