FS: OOP, Rare and Obscure Catalogs; lowered prices

Hi all,
I cut prices and a reposting this. Please buy, as I need cash ASAP. :-)
I have the following old model rocket catalogs for sale. I hate
auctions, so I just want to straight-sell these. Prices are pretty firm, but if you want to buy a lot, we can talk. Buyer pays all shipping. That will be USPS Express Mail, most likely, unless otherwise asked. Insurance extra. I can accept PayPal, money orders or cash. NO PERSONAL CHECKS!
All catalogs are in excellent condition, but not perfect. I take care of them, but also like to look through them, OK? Some are in lesser condition; I marked those. Some come with extras; I marked those, too. Please buy, as I need to raise cash quick, which is why I'm selling them.
Again, I need to sell. If you want to haggle, I'll listen.
