Golden Age comic books, which are generally recognized as comic books published between 1938 and 1956, are some of the most sought after comics because of their historical significance and relative rarity.
If you happen to be the lucky owner of even one single Golden Age comic book, congratulations! Many people seek to be in the position you’re in.
But what if you decide it’s time to sell? Whether you have one Golden Age comic or an entire collection of them, choosing where to sell is the single most important decision in the whole process. Here are our recommendations based on what’s most important to you:
To Sell Fast: Local Collectible Store
When selling any collectible, there’s typically a trade-off between selling as fast as possible and selling for the best price possible. It really depends what your personal situation and personal preferences are, but if you do decide that you’re willing to sacrifice price a bit in order to unload your comic books as fast as possible, then we recommend reaching out to your local comic book or collectible store. They will be able to make an all-cash offer on the spot. Another option is a pawn shop, but that should be a last-resort since they will offer you even less than a comic book or collectible store would.
To Sell Online: eBay
Others may want to sell their comic books online. This method usually leads to a fairly decent selling price, but it takes a lot of work. Yes, you can do it all from home, but there’s a LOT to do! You have to take great pictures, write a great description, pay listing fees, answer questions from potential customers and hope for a little bit of luck. If you are willing to go through that, then selling your comic books on eBay is a great option, as is Craiglist.
