First, Determine What They’re Worth
Although money isn’t the only factor, for most people in this specific scenario, determining what their newly acquired comic book collection is worth can help guide them on next steps. If you’re not familiar with comic books and tapped into current market conditions, it can be difficult to determine what comic books are worth. However we put together a short post to estimate the value of a comic book collection which may be worth reading before you move on to the next steps.
Then Determine If You Want To Keep Them Or Sell Them
Once you’ve determined what these comic books are worth, next it’s important to decide if you want to sell them or keep them. Aside from their monetary value, these comic books could now be prized possessions that hold more sentimental value to you than anything and you may not want to sell regardless of price. Or maybe you could really use the money and you do want to sell. This is a very personal question that only you can answer, but it’s an important one before moving forward to the next steps.
If You Decide To Keep Them, Here’s How To Store Them Properly
After considering both keeping and selling and you’ve decided to keep the comic books, they obviously mean a lot to you. The most important next step is to be sure to store those comic books properly. This will help protect these prized possessions from the elements that can cause them to degrade over time, which means you’ll be able to cherish them for longer while also helping them retain their value should you decide to sell them in the future.
If You Decide To Sell Them, Here Are Some Things To Consider
If you’ve taken everything into consideration and decided to sell them, you still have a lot to consider. From where to sell them and what you want the selling process to look like, we’re written a post on selling comic books to help walk you through the process.
