Keep or throw out: MAD magazines

I'm cleaning out my closet, and I'm throwing things out left and right; sports illustrated, hot rod, note books from high school (wow, my hand writing has gotten really sloppy as of late), its all gotta go. But, I came across my old MAD magazines from about 10-15 years ago. Doubt they have any value, but still, I used to love this crap when I was younger... say adios and send it to the recyclers, or stick it back in the corner? What do you think?

Keep or check eBay before you recycle them. You might be surprised what they could be worth.

If you've got a good comic shop nearby, they might buy them or at least give you an idea what they're worth.

Keep them! If for no other reason but entertainment value.
Or send them to me and I'll keep them for entertainment

I Love the old Mad magazines. I have 1, its from the 70's they parodied the hit TV shows of the day.

Best thing, the edge of some of the pages, theres mini Don Martin comics.

Martin was a genius!

Or as the others have said Ebay, they do have value.

If nothing else, cragislist them locally. But with Media Mail being so cheap, you could probably ship them reasonably if someone wanted to buy them or at least pay shipping for them.

Mad magazines from before warner brothers bought it out, toned it down, and packed it full of adds are worth keeping around. Even if you don't want them, somebody else will.
