  1. I am interested in the Full Cub Club magazine library that was listed with the J-3 cub going up for auction.
    Is that a digital library that I could buy copies of? or is it a paper library?
    I collect piper cub material and I am having trouble finding copies of the old cub club library and magazines.
    Thank you
    Kevin
