For the first time a full set of PUNK magazine in Near Mint to Mint condition is being offered for sale on eBay. A book containing PUNK magazine material is about to be published by Harper/Collins IT Books, so expect the value of all of these magazines to increase exponentially.

These issues have been kept in a bookcase since 1980, when PUNK went out of business, and have never been opened. They are being offered for sale now to help pay for the production expenses for the upcoming book:
PUNK #1: This copy of PUNK #1 displays in near-perfect registration, unlike 90% of the PUNK #1 issues. Most copies of PUNK #1 have bad registration and/or oddball colors. An issue of PUNK #1 in this kind of condition is difficult to find. PUNK #2: This copy of PUNK #2 has none of the blue ink, nor the rips and tears on the sides of the issue, which were the results of bad distribution and printing. You will rarely find a copy of PUNK #2 in this kind of condition.
PUNK #3: This issue, featuring The Ramones, is one of the most sought-after of all PUNK back issues. Getting one in mint condition? Good luck.
PUNK #4: Iggy Pop on the cover, Deborah Harry in the centerfold poster--which put her on the map. This is another much sought-after issue, but good luck finding one that has never been opened before.
PUNK #5: Not that easy to find, since only 5,000 copies were printed, and most of them ended up as newsstand landfill. The worst issue of PUNK ever, but if you need to complete your collection?
PUNK #6: Another very popular issue, because it stars Richard Hell, Debbie Harry, David Johansen, Bob Quine, Legs McNeil, Helen Wheels, and many other CBGB legends in a "film on paper." Again,due to its quarter-fold format,  it is difficult to find copies that have never been opened...
PUNK #7: This is another difficult issue to find: Patti Smith on the cover, with a Blue Oyster Cult interview, Lou Reed's drawings, and a lot more.
PUNK #8: This issue features the first-ever cover story on he Sex Pistols, and a great interview with Johnny Rotten. There's also a story by Michelle Robison, Sid Vicious's last girlfriend, about the Tubes. This is another issue that is not very easy to find.
PUNK #10: (BTW, there was never a PUNK #9 published). While most isses of PUNK enjoyed a print run of 7-25,000, PUNK #10 had only 5,000 copies published. So, good luck finding copies in good condition!
PUNK #11: This is one issue that enjoyed a big print run and should be available in good condition on the collectors' market, but isn't, probably due to popular demand.  We published 10,000 copies in 1977. Twenty years later, the demand outstrips the supply.
PUNK #12: Robert Gordon appeared on the cover, and a great series of New York Dolls photos by Bob Gruen and Roberta Bayley fills out the rest of the issue. There's also a drawing by Joey Ramone, a photo comic of Devo starring Debbie Harry, and a bunch of other cool stuff. A lot of copies were printed of PUNK #12, but you know what? Because of the collectors' market, it's now a rarity.
PUNK #14: How many times do I have to say we skipped #13 fro so many reasons? Anyhow, PUNK #14 was a triumph--the best story ever on the Sex Pstols first US tour, a great story on the Bay City Rollers, an interview with AC/DC (who used to open for The Dictators), and so much more. Many people think that this was the best issue PUNK ever produced. Buy it and I am sure you won't be able to argue.
PUNK #15: Mutant Monster Beach Party: This was, at the time, seen as the ultimate PUNK magazine: Joey Ramone, Debbie harry, Andy Warhol, Peter Wolf and so many other people starring in an amazing photo-comic that has yet to be appreciated by the real world. Once they do? You will find that you have one of the coolest collectibles of all time!
PUNK #16: DiscoManiac: This was he best-selling issue of PUNK magazine ever. But it's the interview with Sid & Nancy, which inspired the film of he same name, that makes you think you should buy this issue.
PUNK #17: This is the most common issue of PUNK, it was over-printed at the time. Bit it's still s good issue.
D.O.A. Filmbook: This issue was published in 1981, and features mostly typeset articles about bands in the film (Sham 69. X-Ray Spex, Rich Kids, Billy Idol/Generation X, etc.). The Sex Pistols 1978 tour article is reprinted with some new photos, many in color. I've seen it on-sale for $250+ at record conventions...
PUNK #0, PUNK #19. PUNK #20, PUNK #21: I am throwing these in to this deal, but believe me, I think these issues stand up to what we did in the 1970s. And the price has been going up, as they become more rare and valuable.The CBGB issue (#21), in particular has been singled out as the best documentation of CBGB to date.
