The Thrill Of The Hunt
Unlike with browsing online or in a store, you never really know what to expect at an estate sale. Maybe you’ll find a massive collection that’s housing extremely valuable comics that no one has identified yet. Or maybe there won’t even me comics available.
Lack Of Competition From Other Buyers
Many things are sold at estate sales, so the focus probably won’t be on the comic book collection. Even if an estate sale lists comic books as part of the sale, there’s a good chance there won’t be much competition from other buyers, putting you in a good position to buy the items at an extremely competitive price.
Potential Hidden Treasures
If a large comic collection is available in an estate sale, there’s a good chance it may not be catalogued and organized properly. So even if it contained a valuable piece, no one may know. This puts you in a strong risk-reward situation if you know what to look for, and one great find within the collection can make the entire purchase worth it.
