Dude, I found that on Ebay you can get huge lots of original Nintendo Power magazines for dirt cheap. There's one sale on there where you get issues 1-55, some of them still in the original packaging (the plastic wrap its sent in), and like 4 NES game guides/code books, basically name your price. I figure I could get a lot like this for around 70 bucks, S&H included.
I'm totally getting myself a set of old Nintendo Powers from Ebay.
I can't wait to look thru the issue when Super Mario 2 came out. I already have the one where Zelda 2 came out, and I was looking through it and looking at all the old ads on it, that shit was AWESOME. Remember how spacey they made all the pics of their controllers look?
