    TV Guide Group (Various, 1952-78) Condition: Average VF. For many years, the most popular magazine in America was TV Guide. This lot is a nostalgic treasure trove of television history, consisting of 79 issues of that beloved magazine. Most copies are in excellent condition, and while there are no copies of well-known collector's items like the Superman or Elvis covers, there's plenty of great stuff here for fans of the ol' Boob Tube. In addition, there's another 17 copies of publications like TV Dial from the early 1950s. Featured on the covers are stars like Jackie Gleason, Red Skelton, Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, Doris Day, and many others. Several issues are Christmas specials; most copies originated from Pittsburgh or Cincinnati. Find out what was on! From the collection of Chris Bell.
