Not sure if there are any Countdown paraphernalia collectors here but there are quite a few Countdown magazines 1983-87 listed on ebay at the moment - they finish at about 7pm tonight. At $3 each many don't have bids on them yet.
There are some rarer issues amongst them including the 1979 Annual and issue 1 with Duran Duran on the cover.
Here's a link: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/DOC-NEESON-BOY-GEORGE-DURAN-DURAN-COUNTDOWN-MAGAZINE-1983-AS-NEW-/181067905668?pt=AU_Magazines&hash=item2a287cfa84
They are all from the same seller.
I just won 4 of them I was bidding on and NOT cheap either!
I won the 1983 Duran cover and 1983 Tim Finn cover as I didn't have them 2!
I also won the Pseudo Echo one as mine didn't have the HUGE Pseudo and Nick Heyward Poster and I won the Billy Idol 1984 Edition as mine was missing a page of 10 Years Of Countdown!
All up with shipping it comes to $170.00! OUCH!!!
Wow..didn't think they'd go that high. About $40 per mag.
There's a few that finish next week that I might bid on.
I spent $53.50 on the Tim Finn 1983 Edition!!!
$48.77 on the 1984 Pseudo Echo Edition!!!
I did a bid recently on a Countdown Magazine from 1983 featuring Jimmy Barnes on the cover. I think it was from the same seller and sold for about $45. I can imagine the Cold Chisel freaks wanting this issue as it was around the time of the bands breakup....
I still think Smash Hits is a better read! . Been bidding and winning on issues from 1987-1989
I DID want the Madonna issue Guru.
I have the whole magazine inside but not the cover and it's SUCH a BRILLIANT issue!
Next time it's on I will have to spend the cash!
None at the moment. UK SHs on Oz ebay are quite rare.
It would be good if the seller of the Countdown magazines actually listed the month as well, and not just the year! Some editions you can see the month on the cover, some you can't.
I got my 4 Countdown mag's today. They are complete HEAVEN with NO pages missing and in MINT Condition. I am in HEAVEN! They have been put in their plastic covers away with all my other Countdown Magazines.
I will add them tot he COUNTDOWN MAGAZINES section down the line ...
Yes, mine are in plastic covers too and tucked away.
There's more Countdown magazines on ebay at the moment, 1984-87 era
A question to those guys wining any copy of mag. "COUNTDOWN Magazin" from 1983 or 1986: Is there anything inside about the late Austrian recording artist FALCO? At least from 1986, where he was Top-10. Could somebody name the number/issue of this monthly magazines having FALCO inside?
Thanx for all your efforts
I have just listed some Countdown magazines from 1987/88 on ebay if anyone is interested. Thanks.
