What Happened To The Value of Urban Magazines??

The screencap of eBay bidding below is from three years ago, and shows one of Melyssa Ford’s magazines going for upward of $200. Check eBay today and you’ll see that many Smooth and BlackMen auctions end without so much as a single bid, let alone reaching $200. On average, these magazines sell for about $3, about $4 below their newsstand price. What gives? Even old issues of the now defunct KING don’t seem to have any value on eBay. Is it a sign that the urban eye candy market is officially dead?
