We've Added Nintendo Power Prices

We're tracking the prices for all Nintendo Power Issues. From Volume 1 to Volume 285.

You can find the latest prices and add the issues to your collection too.

Who here owns the entire Nintendo Power collection?

Anyone collect other gaming magazines like EGM, Game Informer, GamePro, or Sega Visions? Let me know which you collect in the comments below.

Have a collection of EGM, Die hard game fan,Next Generation, nintendo force, and video games and computer entertainment. I had a FULL collection of NP ,but stupidly sold all of them for next to nothing. :(

Anyone know which issues had the VHS tapes? (HotNewz64)
Would you mark that one as "CIB"? ;)

CIB doesn't really apply for Nintendo Power. Nintendo Power didn't have boxes or instructions so that price point doesn't really apply. We've considered making CIB into something a bit different for magazines like "includes inserts". That is a pretty common difference in the magazines, but we haven't implemented that yet.

How many NP issues had VHS tapes?

Would there be any interest in tracking Limited Run Games collectible cards? There are a lot of them being sold separately from their games on ebay.

Actually, just realized (assuming you monitor these comments still).
I was entering my collection of Nintendo Power and never noticed how much value is actually tied to those inserts.

The Spider-man issue 140 is $12 for the variant cover, $3 for the newsstand cover.
The Wind Waker issue 165 is $20 with the poster and stickers, worthless without.
The Rebel Strike issue 173 is $80-100 with the EON Ticket, $10-11 without.
The Jet Force Gemini issue 124 is $20 with the E3 Pikachu promo, $7-9 without.
Issue 164 comes with the Smashing Live SSBM Orchestrated soundtrack and is $20 with, less without.

The VHS tapes are only about $5 or so, but they're worth considering for a "Complete."

In fact, every single issue of Nintendo Power came with 1 (sometimes more) posters, and every 6 issues or so had stickers (wind waker issue!), window clings (spiderman issue!), promo cards (game and watch e-reader promos, pokemon cards), etc.

So there's definitely relevance to making a "Complete" and "Incomplete" separation.
I think I pulled the posters from over 90 of my copies, and absolutely none of those would or should fetch the going price for that issue, since almost every ebay listing is "With poster."

@BlazingSalvo - Thanks for the feedback. Those extras can definitely make a big difference in value. We'd love to add that differentiation at some point.
