These issues are in pretty good shape. These are great for those who want a complete, original, average condition issue to read and enjoy. They may have some light to moderate flaws like small tears, spots, library stamps etc. but would make a great piece of history for the budget minded to mark any occasion.

Mobility. Uganda, Idi Amin. Population control. South Vietnam. Movie - the Godfather. The George Wallace Shooting. Superstars, Swimmer Mark Spitz and Chess player Bobby Fischer.
