Created Resource List with Known Fantasy Magazines

Postby fantasyfiend » Sat Jan 19, 2008 7:47 pm

I browse several message boards and it seems like everybody is asking the same question: "Where can I find fantasy baseball magazines, and when are they released?" So for those interested in books, guides, magazines, etc I created a blog entry at my site for your convenience with all known fantasy magazines, strategy guides, and books. This list is by no means complete, but its a start. Anyway, I hyper-linked the stuff that is available and am looking for feedback to add to the list. If I missed something please let me know. I want this to be a comprehensive list for your convenience.

List is here:

Enjoy.

This is awesome man, thanks! I just picked up a couple of my favorites that I use to help guide my value-setting process. I'm a vet of serpentine leagues, but I've only been auctioning since last year - this makes the publications an invaluable resource IMO.

This is a good link for sure ;-D

FYI, Barnes & Noble had a couple of mags out so far.

1. Lindy's for $6.99
2. Fantasy Sports (w/ARod on cover) for $5.99

Nothing too spectacular but the Fantasy Sports one did have a breakdown of every teams minor league systems & prospects to watch for as well as three different mocks.

Yeah, I snagged both of these and they both have their uses. Lindy's doesnt have auction values, but their projections and rankings are usually pretty sounds and I like their presentation. There are couple that I like to buy further down the road (that I can never remember the names of), but these are a good start for this early in the year for sure ;-D

I'm glad you've found this list useful. I also need to give credit to HOOTIE. He helped me gather the names of the magazines many I never knew would have existed.

No problem. I'm adding updates as more stuff becomes available (release dates, cheapest prices, etc)

Based off user feedback I've added 2 more magazines and 3 more books. Let me know if I'm missing something.
