Title: Maps for sale/giveaway?
Post by: DTComposer on January 21, 2019, 10:07:55 PM
If this is bad forum form I apologize (I poked around and couldn't find anything about it on the guidelines).

I'm thinning out my map collection and put a handful up on eBay:

To be honest, if anyone here wants them, I'd be glad to give them to you for the cost of mailing.

The only thing that comes close is this:

Advertising a give-away isn't necessarily commercial, but advertising a sale could be.

I can't access half of ebay at work for some dumb reason.  What World's Fair maps do you have?

It's the 1964/1965 New York one (I think it's pretty common, but it's in great shape). Here's the description of the three maps on the listing:

Official Souvenir Map from 1964/1965 New York World's Fair. Excellent shape. Cover has minor wear on edges, map is flawless.
This Week Magazine See America Travel Guide booklet, listing state/national parks, monuments, etc. 32 pages. Excellent shape. 1959.
Fold-out U.S. wall map to accompany This Week guide. 52"x34". Excellent shape except one tear along fold, easily mend-able. 1959.

I got some maps I wanna get rid of as well.

One rare gem is a 1964 Rand McNally road atlas.  Neat to see where the Interstate Highways were at the time -- it even lists part of US-27 in Michigan as "Temporary" I-75.

Soon to become permanent...

Done! I've taken it off eBay - PM me your address and I'll put them in the mail. Thanks!
