At my knitting group's White Elephant Christmas party last month, I got five Magic Crochet Magazines. I really didn't want them, I'd just given away stacks of knitting and crochet magazines and I didn't want any more. However, I kept them anyway. Yesterday a friend from the group told me that they were valuable antiques and never to get rid of them. They don't look antique to me. All the pictures are in color, the paper is glossy (I know they've done that for years though), and the price tag printed on it says it was $2.50 when it was new. I would think real antique magazines would have been priced lower than that back then.
So my question is what are they worth and are they really antique?
