5280 Comics are always buying collections to add to our inventory. Although we prefer comics that are pre-1980, there are comics after 1980 that we are still interested in. If you have a large collection we will be happy to help you evaluate your collection at your location.
Please understand that comics, like any collection, is meant to be enjoyed. And while some KEY comics are in very high demand and sell quickly, most will be very common. It is the reason the majority of comic books sit in the back issue boxes for many years. It is a cost that we must absorb when buying collections – we take the bad with the good. 🙂
To get the best prices for your collection we encourage you to shop around to get 2-3 offers. Another way to get the best possible prices, assuming you have the time, is to sort them out and sell them individually.
You also have the option of having us sell your comic collection on a consignment basis. With this option, we will go through your collection and pick only the issues that we think can sell at its highest value. This way, you’ll get a much better value for your key books.
In any event, if you plan to have us look at your collection, please contact us to discuss your collection before bringing them to us. In some instances, you may have to leave your collection with us as it may take a few days to evaluate your books.
