Comic Book Sales: Year End Review16647

I'm a #2. BigRedOne1944 private msg quote post Address this user
Well as many of you may know I have began the task of selling off the majority of comic books I have accumulated over the years.

Selling off a large collection of books;(10,000), takes a lot of leg work and could take multiple years.

The 2021 year marks the second year of my sell off, mostly through my Hip Comic Store , as well as some Ebay sales.

I thought it would be interesting to take a look at what sold last year. While I feel I did ok with my sales, looking back I might have gave away a few items in the mix. Oh well! Its all gotta go!


Sold prices do not include shipping cost.

Most of these books Ive owned for 30 years or more, so this will be my farewell to these old "Friends"

My first sale of the year.........


Web of Spiderman #65 (9.0) $1.50 (1/3/21)





Up next was a set in hind sight I kind of gave away. I believe my pricing was in line at the time of the listing and I believe all of the books were 9.8 candidates. Oh Well! ya can't win them all! Still sold them for more than I paid for them

Star Wars:Shadow of the Empire #1-6 (Set)(9.8 NM-MT) $100 (1/4/21)




Detective Annual #2 (9.0) $5.00 (1/5/21)




Air Boy #5 (9.0) $5.00 (1/5/21) The Dave Stevens cover has always been popular




X-Men #1 (Beast, Storm Variant)(9.2) $6.00 (1/6/21) Looks like a heck of a deal now.




Spiderman #8 #9 #10 SET (9.6 -9.8) $16.00 (1/7/21) McFarlane books are always good sellers. Especially in Super High grades




Spectacular Spiderman #170 (7.5) $1.50 (1/8/21) Hey.... at least I moved a book out of the house!





Uncanny X-Men #234 (8.5) $10.00 (1/8/21)




Marvel Saga #1-20 SET (9.4) $100 (1/9/21)




Star Wars Boba Fett Enemy of the Empire #1 #2 #3 (9.8) $90.00 (1/9/21) Some other Star Wars books that have escalated in price.





Space Jam Card Set (Mint) $49.00 (1/10/21) I also moved a lot of Sport and non-sport cards as well this year. Much of it through private message board sales.





Star Wars Crimson Empire #1-6 SET (9.8) $130 (1/13/21) Looks like I got killed on this set! Im certain the buyer here is tickled pink! At least at cover price I still ended up in the plus.




Batman Legends of the Dark Knight #1-#5 Master Set (9.6) $30.00 (1/14/21) This set included all four #1 color variations, as well as issues #2 , 3, 4, 5 Ive been sitting on lots of super high grade copies of these books for years now. Time to move some out.





X-Men #19 (8.0) $2.50 (1/17/21) every little bit helps





New Teen Titans #61 (9.6) $10.00 (1/18/21) Cross over from the popular George Perez "Lonely Place of Dying" that ran in the Batman titles. In light of the current issues going on why Mr.Perez I will need to check my stock on this story line.





Transformers #3 (7.0) $12.00 (1/19/21)





GI Joe #95 (8.5) $7.00 (1/21/21) I always loved this Andy Kubert Snake Eyes Cover.




Classic Illustrated #4 (8.5) $6.00 (1/21/21) Moby Dick! One of my all time favorite novels!




1991 Sky Box Michael Jordan #534 Team USA PSA 9 $40.00 (1/21/21) An Ebay Sale here. I always felt the card was more than a Mint 9




1991 Upperdeck Michael Jordan #44 $10.00 (1/21/21) Another Ebay sale. I always loved this Michael Jordan card. It is his very 1st Upperdeck card that came from their premiere basketball card set back in 1991. To this day I still believe that along with the 1991 Upperdeck Football set, they are two of the most beautiful premium card sets ever produced.





1/6 Scale WWII US Scout Car $450 (1/21/21) Back in the early 2000's I was heavily into building and custom painting WW II 1/6 scale GI Joe figures a vehicles. This Scout Car was one of my earlier projects. This are large 1/6 scale vehicles for 12 inch GI Joe figures. As much as I hated to, I had to free up some room and so I sold this custom vehicle. let me tell ya it is a SOB packaging something like this to ship!

Continuing on with the yearly sales..


Captain America vs Wolverine Poster $10.00 (1/22/21) Mike Zeck being one of my all-time favorites, this poster hung on my wall for many years. It survived a couple house moves and had some pretty good wear on it. I was surprised it sold for 10 bucks to tell you the truth. Then again just look at the image!





Spiderman #1 Black Variant (9.8) $28.00 (1/24/21) These High grade McFarlane books always seem to sell very well. I bought a 300 ct of these from Diamond distributors the year they were issued. Ive subbed many to CGC as well as CBCS and rarely do I not get a 9.8 on these. I have some currently at CBCS and have refrained from selling the 9.8 raws for the time being.





Space Jam Limited Edition Print $159.00 (1/25/21) Ive always done well with Michael Jordan Space Jam material, including most of the toy figures.




Man of Steel #1 - 6 Complete set NM $70.00 (1/24/21) Another Ebay sale. The set actually included the Both the Direct and Newsstand Version of Issue #1. A beautiful Set and I always felt that John Byrne's 1986 mini series redefined the Superman character. Yes I reluctantly pulled these out of my PC







1989 Score Unopened Football wax Box BBCE Sealed $1,595.00 (1/25/21) Yet another Ebay Sale. I bought 4 of these boxes like 15 years ago with the thought of busting them to build a top grade 1989 Score set featuring Barry Sanders,Troy Aikman, Deion Sanders and other HOF rookies. I purchased the four sealed boxes directly from Steve Hart at BBCE for $300 per box. With the escalating prices I decided it was time to sell 3 of them. Im still sitting on the final box and may just hold it for awhile. Im not feeling AS bad about those Star Wars books now.





Marvel Tales #138 (7.5 Newsstand) $12.00 (1/27/21) Back to the grind! I started testing to see if Newsstand variant had any kind of premium and it appears they did sell quite well. Even more so in higher grades. Of coarse an iconic Spiderman Re-print cover never hurts.



Marvel Tales #139 (9.0 Newsstand) $10.00 (1/27/21)




Marvel Tales #154 (7.5) $3.50 (1/27/21)




Marvel Tales #221 (9.0 Newsstand) $5.00 (1/27/21)




Nam #52 (8.5) $2.50 (1/27/21)




Rock Fantasy #6 Guns & Roses (8.0) $2.00 (1/27/21)





Spectacular Spiderman #45 (7.5) $2.50 (1/27/21)





Swamp Thing #13 (1st Series / 3.0) $2.50 (1/27/21) I do retain a complete run of the Swamp Thing Series one and the Nestor Redondo Cover on this issue has always been one of my favorites of the 24 issue set.





Captain America #252 (9.0) $10.00 (1/27/21) First cap book of the year with a nice cover by the ole pro Al milgrom





Aliens vs Predator #1 (9.0) $8.00 (1/29/21)





Aliens vs Predator #2 (9.0) $5.00 (1/29/21) what's not to like about this series!?





Spiderman #5 (9.6) $10.00 (1/31/21) Again....The power of Todd McFarlanes Artwork never fails to sell. I only wish I would have bought a couple hundred of this issue as well back in the day..





Star Wars Phantom Menace #2 (9.6) $12.00 (1/31/21)





X-Force #4 (9.4) $4.00 (1/31/21)




Spiderman #15 (9.4) $5.00 (1/31/21)





Spiderman #16 (9.4) $5.00 (1/31/21)




That's all the sale for January 2021...... Next up...... February!

I like those books specially Spider-Man. I have a good handful of books at cbcs I'm hoping to get back soon that have been there since July. A few of them are Spider-Man like the 1 you have a bunch of and 1 is the gold variant I'm curious to see what it grades at.

I have some at CBCS as well. 5 of each of the Spiderman #1's



Im confident they will pull 9.8's Ive never had one pull less.



Hopefully you can score high on the Gold variant You submitted. I had a few of the golds couple years back, but have since sold them, maybe should have held onto one...

Best of luck on your submission! Please be sure to post them up if you ever do get them back from CBCS

I have some metal covers of some different books there that should do pretty well. At the other place for grading I have 3 different last ronin books that I sent in May that they say were received in June I haven't received yet that I hope did good. But I've been holding on to a bunch of other stuff that I'm excited to send to CBCS when they finally get there new slabs in

Yes the New CBCS slabs are super sweet! They Have been available for the past year or so. The problem is the crazy long turn around times. My oldest order has been there since April of last year. The seemingly legendary non-existent CBCS customer can also be a problem if something gets screwed up with your order.

The time I can deal with...... Its fingers crossed that none of the labels or slabs have any issues that would require any kind of customer service needs


What are your plans for the books? Sell or PC?


Good Luck with your subs! Can't wait to see then!

Sorry I just realized I forgot to put in the slabs for bigger books like the last ronin. There are some I want to keep and some I will most likely sell so I can send more in for grading. I'm hoping at some point I get 1 that gets a 10 for grading which depending on my situation I'll keep. I have a Tales to astonish 88 6.5 cgc that's signed by Stan Lee that I'll always keep unless the right price is ever offered to me. I got it from a mystery box thing I got at target for 10 bucks with a chance to win a autographed book by him. I got 5 boxes and on the last box I won.

@Mrbryceman

Sounds like you have a pretty nice collection going. A "10" is a pretty high hope! Ive slabbed a lot of nice books over the last 20 years or so and the closest I've ever gotten to a 10 was a Mint 9 I received on one of the Spiderman #1 book's.

Evil Ernie Revenge #4 (9.4) $5.00 (2/18/21)




Marvel Comics Presents #72 (9.6) $29.00 (2/18/21) Guess I may have gotten a bit premature selling some of these. Oh well..... I still got a box full of them. Some are on one of my subs still currently sitting a CBCS. Hopefully I get them back some time this year.





Marvel Comics Presents #73 (9.6) $20.00 (2/18/21) Same buyer snagged this beauty as well





Marvel Comics Presents #74 (9.4) $18.00 (2/18/21) Same buyer made it a trifecta. In hindsight it Looks like he made some Very good choices last year.

Moving on to the Month of March 2021


Sales were pretty brisk for the month



First sale of the month belonged to the Dark Knight



Batman Legend of the Dark knight #1-4 (Set 9.4) $15.00 (3/1/21) Im extremely deep in these books and they sell pretty well throughout the year. The solid colored covers with the black on them are extremely tough so I tend to grade these issues conservative. Please feel free to contact me if you would like a nice set.





Uncanny X-Men #268 (9.2) $15.00 (3/1/21) Always a super popular Jim Lee book. This was the last one I had. I previously sold the higher grades I had in the $25 range





New Kids on the Block Promo Poster $10.00 (3/2/21) I have no idea where I got this poster





Mighty Thor #346 (7.5) $5.00 (3/4/21)

Masters of the Universe #3 Newsstand (7.5) $10.00 (3/6/21)




Incredible Hulk #267 (8.0) $12.00 (3/6/21) It was a Super nice book. I may have under graded it.





Shadowmasters #1-4 Set (9.8) $15.00 (3/7/21) Considering these were prestige format books with a $3.95 cover price. It appears I gave this set away pretty cheap.





Groo #13 (9.0) $5.00 (3/7/21) Hopefully the possible show is a go. I love Groo.





Groo #18 (Newsstand 9.0) $5.00 (3/7/21)

March Sales Continued

Ghost Rider #2 (9.4) $15.00 (3/12/21) This seemed to be a popular book throughout the year





Swamp Thing #6 (2nd Series 7.5) $3.00 (3/13/21)





Dick Tracy #1 #2 SET(9.0) $10.00 (3/13/21) I kinda figured the comic hobby had past Dick Tracy by in favor of the more flashy modern day super heroes.





Dick Tracy #1 (Newsstand 9.4) $10.00 (3/13/21) Then again.... How could anyone not love Mrs. Pruneface? Kinda of makes ya wanta shit now doesn't it





Super Mario Bros #1 (Special Edition 9.6) $150.00 (3/13/21) I heard these books go for more, but I was content at this price point. I had previously sold a regular version of the book for $250




Nam #3 (9.4) $10.00 (3/13/21) As I stated earlier, Nam was a very popular title throughout the year. Being a War Comic Buff it was always a favorite title of mine as well and I had a pretty sizable run on the title as well as dups of many of the issues.




Nam #4 (Newsstand 9.2) $12.00 (3/13/21) I was kinda reluctant to let my Nam books go, but I figured I need to move out the majority of books while the market was hot and before to bubble bursts.

Nam #11 (7.5) $3.00 (3/13/21)

Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers #1 (9.4) $5.00 (3/14/21) I always thought these books would be more popular, being the 1st Comic Books Walt Disney ever actually produced and printed themselves. I guess I was wrong up to this point. Still sitting on a bunch of them





X-Force #16 (Poly Bag / NM) $3.00 (3/14/21)





Roger Rabbit #1 (9.0) $2.50 (3/14/21) Like the other Disney Books i really thought this particular of with Roger Rabbit would have panned out by this time. Im still optimistic that it will get more attention at some point.

1991 Marvel II Cards (3/16/21)

Card #14 Punisher $2.00
