Thanks smeg and jace, the sold on ebay thing sounds like the best way to find real prices for these.  Super thanks brothers.

I sell a lot of comics and records and yes, sold auctions are the best way to gauge real value, price guides are essentially worthless. That's an amazing run of some of the most timeless comics EVER! If you sell that, even in that condition, you should still clear a decent amount of $$. Or you could pretend like it's the 60s and take some acid and let Jack Kirby change your life lol

I emailed Norrin Radd and talked to my brother about it and we're going to give away the silver surfers to Norrin Radd, because he's a good dude and super into silver surfer so he would really get a lot out of them.  Norrin Radd is the real name of the silver surfer.  The full run only sells for $1000 on ebay, so it's not a gigantic deal to me and I'd much rather someone who would absolutely love them get to enjoy them.  We do need to get a few of the silver surfers graded just in case they get really good grades and are then worth a lot more than $1k (and then we'd sell), but I don't expect that result, they seem to be between a 5 and a 7 based on examples online.

 

We'll sell the old super valuable fantastic fours, but after waiting for a possible silver surfer marvel movie which may inflate prices further.  There are some articles about the superhero movies positively affecting the comic book collectible market, and there's also articles about a marvel studios fantastic four movie or possible silver surfer, so it only makes sense to wait on this one.

 

There's actually a lot more old comics we got (like 20+) that don't seem valuable at all, so it probably wouldn't be worth it to sell those on ebay.  If a local comic book dealer doesn't take them for some decent lot price, I'll list them here and just give them to anyone interested.

Does anyone have any experience with getting rid of a lot of comics? I have to move and I need to do some massive purging of possessions I don't want to bring with me. I've got like 4 shortboxes full and I don't have the time or energy to try selling them online. I'm thinking donation would be the best route but I don't really know what that looks like during covid times. All our libraries are closed and not taking donations right now.

if any of the stuff you have is solid runs of 20+ issues of any particular title, try to sell those as thats the easiest stuff to move for any amount of money, other wise if its stuff you don't want to bother with/ isn't worth money (sad spoiler: most comics arent worth anything really, this is why i have a hard time parting with so much of my collection, as I know the money i would get just isnt worth ditching stuff) i have donated many boxes of all-ages comics to Phoenix Childrens Hospital, they get pretty excited. don't know how that works during pandemic stuff tho

My extremely amazing local shop let me trade in all my old basically worthless 90s comics for store credit and I ended up with a few nice graphic novels (some Daniel Clowes, Chris Ware, Hernandez bros, that sort of thing) in exchange. They even bagged up a decent run I have of Archie Sonic and handed them back to me saying "you should probably look into selling these online." Come to Athens, GA, for no obvious reason we have the best shop ever. YMMV.

i dunno how the comic stores around you are, but a few around here will go through your books and either offer you some amount for them or give you the option of just taking them off your hands. Even if they don't expressly have a sign for it, a lot of stores can't resist a large lot of books they think they could make a few bucks off of in some manner or another as back issue inventory. It might be worth asking.

 

edit: should have read the rest of the thread. what jace said, more or less.
