Long story but I seem to have inherited every single issue of NG from about 1961 thru 90, give or take a few issues. Lots of excellent reading but apparently pretty much no value. Now, with more covid free time, I see that every issue has an old boat, Evinrude or Mercury ad. Gone thru just a few and it looks like a gold mine of old ads.
Gonna sticky note each issue, looks like two boat/motor ads per issue.
Or I could eventually cut out and collage/frame by subject. Probably hundreds to choose from.
Any interests or request that I keep on the lookout for. Besides, of course, an original Cabo Cuddy con ad.
Posting a couple pics from my phone in a couple minutes.

Cool stuff, the development path of the boating industry post WW2 is interesting as the population finally found some leisure time :)

Interesting to see the progression of advertising. Looks like the main flurry was mostly Evinrude. Around 59-63? I'll keep looking. Oldest is 1929.
