about 7 years ago my uncle gave me some 1950s girlie magazines to sell on ebay for him. i put them in a box and forgot about them. while moving a couple weeks ago, i came across the box. so for your viewing pleasure...i present "Wink" "Eyeful" "Flirt" and "Paris Models."

do you think there is a market for these things?

Absolutely there is a market for them. I'd consider doing some research first because ebay might nmot be the best place for them.

The 40s-50s is a dream era for most women as far as pin-up-abilty goes. We could eat actual real food in a decent volume and still be considered sexy enough to pose in mags.
Marilyn Monroe would have to have SERIOUS lipo to be a glamour girl now.

If these are in mint or near mint condition they could be worth quite a lot!
