Rare Archive Copies of Chain Saw Age
Now Available As Annual Sets, 1970-79
Ken Morrison, former editor of Chain Saw Age magazine and keeper of the official CSA vintage archive, has unpacked, sorted and assembled the remaining excess copies from the years 1970 through 1979. He is offering them for sale as annual sets, which vary in quantity from year to year. Some years contain all 12 monthly editions. But, most contain less--around eight or nine issues per year, on average.
Because they are from the publisher's original archive, most of the issues are mint, uncirculated copies. Only about 1/3 of them have been imprinted and/or dispatched and returned to the publisher. The returned copies may have some smudges, marks, stains, tears, bent corners, etc. However, most of them are still in good condition.
Considering that individual '70s vintage issues of CSA can fetch $10-$20 or more on eBay, these issues are bargain-priced at just $2.50 per copy. Purchase prices will vary because the issues are only offered as annual sets and the number of copies-per-set range from six to 12. For example a complete, 12-issue set from 1979 costs $30. The most complete sets from 1970 contain just six issues, so those sets cost $15.
When assembling these sets, the cleanest copies were used first, so the most complete sets are also slightly better in condition. Orders will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, so those who act quickly will receive the nicest and most complete sets.
Shipping cost will depend on the number of sets ordered. In most cases, shipping will be done via U.S. Postal Service Flat Rate boxes. This is an economically priced service that is both fast and dependable. International shipping is also offered.
To order a CSA 1970s set or sets, contact Ken Morrison at 360-293-6593 or send an E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. After the number of issues in your order has been determined, you will receive an invoice detailing the cost plus shipping. Payment may be made by check or PayPal.
These copies are now 30-40 years old, so supplies are limited.
(As with past Chain Saw Age archive promotions, we must acknowledge the kind support and assistance provided by this great website and its host, Mike Acres. Thanks for taking our message all around the world, and providing a connection to so many interesting vintage chain saw enthusiasts. --Ken)
NOTICE: NEW EMAIL ADDRESS: email@example.com
Please do not email me asking for the selling price of a chain saw model. I would only be guessing as to the value which is really an agreement between the seller and the buyer. I receive far too many emails to be able to keep up answering them all.
