Also Check Out Your Local Comic Book Stores
While not all comic book stores will have large comic book collections available for sale all the time, most will be able to at least point you in the right direction to find large collections that are for sale privately, or “off-the-market”. These can be through well-known collectors in the area, auction houses about to list collections, and so on. Finding an off-market collection and making an offer can be a great way to build your collection at a great price because you won’t be competing with other buyers. Don’t let these opportunities slip away if you come across one!
Review The Classifieds For Estate Sales
If you review newspapers and browse your local Craigslist, once-in-a-while you’ll find an estate sale that lists a comic book collection as the assets being sold off. This can be another way to find a hidden treasure at a great price because you probably won’t be bidding against many other interested buyers. (PRO TIP: Even if the estate doesn’t list comic books for sale, they may still have them. Call the point of contact for the estate sale to inquire about comic books, sometimes they will surprise you!)
Check Out The Auction Houses
Local auction houses sometimes list valuable comic book collections. The good thing about auction houses is many of them will take bids virtually, so you don’t necessarily have to be there live, however it’s always more fun!
Remember, finding a large comic book estate that you’re interested in buying takes a lot of time, so be sure to enjoy the journey! If you ever have questions, you can always reach out to us, we’d be happy to help!
