I don't collect them but it would be cool to have some of the notable ones from the past. This reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Frank Costanza collects TV Guide and Elaine gives away his Al Roker one. Do you have that one by chance? :D

I dont collect TV Guides either, but I use to have a bunch as younger kid because both my grandparents on my parents side use to keep them, and so did my mother. But I think they've all been thrown out now.

But that's a pretty impressive list.
