Some time ago, I posted a thread regarding airline flight schedules from long ago. Many of my replies suggested looking on EBay. I have been watching EBay ever since. I am still seeking an OAG Pocket Flight Guide dating from the late 1960s or early 1970s, wondering how soon one will appear on EBay.
To increase my chances of finding one soon, I would like to know other possible ways to find such a flight guide (Such as other websites or memoribilia show events, etc.). Another member once gave me a list of near-future memoribilia show events (many, if not all, have now come and gone) in various cities around the USA, but none were anywhere near where I live. Minneapolis is the nearest major city to where I live.
I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions on where to look for old flight guides. Thanks.

OAG's from the 60'and 70's are getting a little hard to find as you may already know. If you do find one, be prepared to spend a good chunk of change for one. I saw a couple from the early 70's sell for close to $50.00 a piece out at the AI 2004 show at LAX in july, and those were a little worn at that. I've seen some from the mid 60's go for way over $100.00 a piece. I too have seen them on Ebay, but they seem to appear less often it seems, and they do get bid on by quite a few people, so keep a sharp eye out.

The N.A Pocket Guide was introduced in 1970. All I have seen on the internet auction the last several months are desktop guides from the 60's and 70's plus pocket guides from the 80's-onwards. All go for top-dollar with many bidders.
