Congrats to K.B., the high bidder in our most recent benefit auction.

Today we are beginning a new auction. This one is for another large mixed lot that includes

All of these magazines are of recent manufacture (and hence are NOT legal to possess in New York.) These magazines have a combined value of approximately $750, in today’s market. Note: If you live in a state where full capacity magazines are banned, then you must choose to: refrain from bidding, or designate a recipient in an unrestricted state, or re-donate the magazines for a subsequent auction.
