TV GUIDE MAGAZINE


--------------------
U.S. TV Guide
--------------------


In addition to game shows, I also collect TVGuide magazine. On April 3, 1953, the first national issue was published, with Lucy and her baby on the cover. The issue dated October 9, 2005 was the 2741st issue, and the last digest-size issue before the reformatting of the magazine. Of those 2741, I've managed to accumulate 2521 of them, but would eventually love to have every issue. In recent years, TVGuide has also published many issues with multiple covers - such as NFL, Gone With the Wind and Beatles issues. I've got about 100 of the multiple covers but am missing many of those.

(To view my TVGuide collection by year, click here)

Do you have any to sell or trade? Please e-mail me - I'm always looking to fill in more of my many gaps, or the various multiple-covers that I missed. If you have issues I don't have, I might be interested in them.

TV Guide had about 160 different local editions around the US. Here is a listing of the editions I have (some may have only been in print for a short time, or may have been replaced by other editions serving that area). How did I get so many? Several ways - from subscription; from traveling to those areas; having friends or relatives who traveled there; trading issues with other collectors (I will also trade game shows for older issues); or even buying older issues from various sources.


The year listed is the most recent issue I have of each edition. I hope to add extra stuff to this page as soon as possible.

Canadian TV Guide
-------------------------


Beginning Jan. 1, 1977, the issue of TV Guide sold in Canada was different than the US issue. I've managed to collect them all from 1977 to early 1993, and have around 75% of the issues since then. Here are my Canadian editions:


Alberta (1987)
Calgary - cable (1989)
Central Ontario (2004)
Eastern Ontario (2001)
Hamilton-Niagara (1981)
Hamilton and Region (1990)
Maritime Provinces (1982)
Maritime (2001)
Manitoba (1980)
Manitoba-Saskatchewan (1969)
Montreal (1988)
Montreal-St. Lawrence (1978)
Montreal-Quebec (1984)
Oshawa-Peterborough (1991)
Ottawa - Eastern Ontario (1992)
Toronto - Rogers Cable (1998)
Toronto-Lake Ontario (1980)
Toronto (1996)
Toronto-Peterborough (2002)
Saskatchewan (1990)
Vancouver - Rogers Cable (1998)
Western British Columbia (1990)
Western Ontario (2002)




Over the years of collecting TV Guides, I've accumulated lots of duplicate issues that I no longer need. This list has over 400 issues from 1960 to the present that are available. I'm willing to either trade or sell these issues. If you collect TVGuides and you're interested in trading for some or buying any, here's a list of what I have available.
