If you want to auction your comic books, the first thing to do is determine what it is you have. Look at the cover prices. Those comic books with original cover prices of 10 or 12 cents have the most potential for value, and were originally published between the 1930s – 1975. The comic books are called Golden Age, Silver Age and Bronze Age comic books. If you have those to auction, checkout ComicConnect.com for an appraisal or to consign. They are the ones who set the world record with the sale of Action Comics #1 for $1.5 Million. If you have more modern comic books original published between 1975 – Present (identified by cover prices of 35 cents or more), we recommend eBay.com.
The comic industry is huge, generating millions each year both in theaters and in the sale of valuable, vintage books. It's clear when watching franchises steamroll box office ticket sales, Spiderman, Superman, X-Men, Watchmen, Fantastic Four, and Iron Man.
The market of comic book merchandise fuels a vigorous buying, selling, and dealing economy that spans the entire globe. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, these websites offer the best appraisal services, automated want lists, consignment services, rare pedigree collections, and high grade CGC comics as well as low grade reader copies.
