How To Sell Your Comic Book Collection

How Should You Sell Your Comics?

Many Paths

When selling a collection of anything you must figure out how much time you are going to invest in the endeavor. Time is money so you need to figure out what is going to be the best option for you. Here are three options to consider.

One At A Time

You may consider selling each and every comic one at a time. This will take the longest, but could yield the largest results. That is, if every comic in your collection is worth a decent amount. If you have many comics of little value, then selling them one at a time at a place like eBay will only eat up a lot of your profits.

Big Lot

The big lot, the whole shebang. Getting rid of a comic collection this way is the shortest, but will often yield the least amount of money. If you’re looking for quick cash, go this route, but don’t be offended if you are offered much less than your collection is worth.

Small Chunks

In my opinion, this is the best way to sell a larger collection of comic books. It will take longer than selling it all in one shot, but much less time than selling one at a time. It should also garner much more than just selling it one whack.

Another Option

You might want to also consider doing some of all three. Put the least valuable in one lot, sell your runs of comics – Ultimate Spider-Man #2-10 – and save the rarer #1 to sell individually.
