Nostomania's 100 most valuable magazines

With each pricing update we compute and show here the 100 most valuable magazines. We chose NM 9.4 as a "baseline" grade for comparison. Clearly, some of these items may not, and probably do not exist in that grade. Also, the magazines database is still in its relative infancy, so there are certainly many items not yet in the database which will join this list when they are entered.
