Why You Should Trust Collectibles Investment Group to Appraise Your Comic Book Collection
by Sean Bassik
If you’re looking to sell your comic book collection, you might not know where to start. You may have no idea how much to expect your collection to sell for, and doing the research yourself takes seemingly endless time and energy. Since there are so many intricacies, you’re actually likely to end up with the wrong information. It makes much more sense to turn to a reputable appraiser that can look through your collection and give you a fair and accurate value. That’s why the team at Collectibles Investment Group has dedicated themselves to helping collectors of all kinds determine a fair price for their valuable items.
Selling Your Comic Book Collection
When you’re looking to sell your comic book collection, there are several different ways to go about it. Many people simply put their collection in alphabetical order and then sort by number. This is an easy way to see any gaps in your collection so you can be looking for the right issues to complete a set. Alternatively, you may want to group your comics by arc, especially if you have newer comics or comics that are less valuable. Grouping by arc ensures that your buyer will have the whole story.
Grade, rarity, and appeal of your issues are a few factors that will impact the selling price. Some collectors choose to sell multiple comic books at a time, while others choose to sell individual issues. Selling individually is much more time-consuming but might end up yielding you a higher profit than selling in a group. If you have a big collection with lower-valued comics, your efforts are better spent in selling your comics as a whole, or at the very least, selling in several smaller groups.
