Condition is very important when it comes to Wisden. Over the past few years more people have come into the market requesting books in as near mint condition as possible. It is debatable whether these new buyers are cricket lovers or people seeking an alternative investment opportunity
As time progresses the older Wisdens will become scarcer, whether held in private collections or simply made unavailable through collectors passing away and relatives inadvertently discarding them (this still happens) the diminishing number of editions will only drive up the price of those remaining
The most important thing about a Wisden is that it is read and enjoyed by its owner, therefore those seeking pristine copies may well have to be patient and be prepared to pay a healthy premium as (hopefully) most almanacks will have been read and enjoyed, thumbed and opened regularly, making them what they were published to be, a wonderful companion for the cricket enthusiast.
