Maybe you only have one Captain America comic book. Or maybe you have an entire collection of investment-grade Marvel comics. Either way, it’s hard to not wonder how much those Marvel comics are worth every once in a while.
Determining any comic’s value is more of an art than a science. But it’s possible to at least come up with a ballpark estimate.
Here’s our guide on how to determine how much your Marvel comics may be worth:
First, Organize What You Have
Storing your comic books properly has two benefits: first, it makes it fast and easy to catalog what you have to let people know what you’re selling, and second, it helps preserve the value of your comic books by preventing unnecessary wear-and-tear and aging.
Then, See If Similar Marvel Comics Have Sold Recently
In the end, the value of any comic book is simply what someone else is willing to pay for it. Luckily you can use eBay’s Advanced Search to sort through completed listings of similar items to see what they sold at and how recently. This is a great baseline to start at for your own collection.
Then Compare The Condition Of Those Recent Sales To Your Marvel Comics’ Condition
Once you have a baseline value based on similar Marvel Comics that sold, you can adjust the valuation for your own specific collection. The biggest variable will be condition. Are your Marvel comics in relatively better or worse condition based on the standard grades? You’ll need to adjust up or down accordingly.
If Necessary, Seek Help From A Professional
In the end, speaking to a professional will be useful, especially for high-valued collections. Beyond just knowing the current supply-and-demand for your specific items, they will have the grading experience and their finger on the pulse of the market. They can also guide you on how to sell your Marvel comics.
