Comic books are a timeless collectible. The older they are, the more valuable they get. So it only makes sense that eventually, an avid comic book collector may end up with a lot of really old comic books.
What if you don’t want the comic books anymore? Or what if you inherited a lot of comic books and don’t want them? It may be time to consider selling them. Here are the best places you should consider selling old comic books:

Local Comic Book Store
Do you have a comic book store closeby? Then at least bringing your old comic books there for an appraisal is always a good first step. Whether or not the offer is where you’d like it to be is another story, but getting your comics in front of experts never hurts, because determining a valuation for old comic books is more of an art than a science.
The first place most people think of when selling their comic books is online. Whether that’s eBay, Craigslist or a private collectors group, there are pros and cons of selling your old comic books online. The most obvious pro is that you get your collection in front of a lot of interested buyers, increasing your odds of getting a great offer. The main drawback of selling online that most people overlook is the amount of time and effort it takes to go through with a listing regardless of if it’s successful or not. Between taking pictures, writing descriptions, answering questions and waiting for a good offer, there’s a lot of effort involved. And even after all that, there’s no guarantee you get an offer you like.
If you’re dealing with very high-priced comic books, it may be worthwhile to contact a well-established auction house. The benefit here is that they have an entire network of high net worth buyers they can reach out to immediately to stir up interest. Of course, there are hefty commissions and fees involved with going through an auction house.
To get the best of both worlds, reach out to us at Sparkle City Comics if you’re interested in selling your old comic books. We make all-cash top-dollar offers on items we’re interested in and we prioritize a fast and simple process in order to keep everyone happy. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions- we’re here to help!
