Requests for selling some books6627

Collector xkonk private msg quote post Address this user
I'm going to be selling a bunch of odds and ends while I make room for some more important books. I wanted to join the other nice folks who sell on the forum so I thought I would start here before I move on to trying my LCS. But there are a lot of books, and a fair amount of dollar bin-type material, so I thought I'd poll the potential customers:

a) I was thinking I would have several sales and break things out by category. DC one week, Image another week, by character for the ones I have enough of, etc. Do people like that, or a free for all?

b) For the actual selling, I could do a flash sale like @poka, @darkga, and other people have done, or I could just put up a list and take bids OBO. Any preferences?

c) I'm happy to take scans/pictures, but are there strong feelings about estimated grades? I can estimate but I'd hate for there to be hurt feelings if I don't catch something.

Thanks!

Would never recommend LCS, even Craigslist would be better.

Do a flash sale. People aren’t going to be bitching if they pay a dollar Or even five dollars for something you called very fine and it turns out to be fine

Be conservative with your grades, throw in some freebies, and keep the prices low and you will do just fine 🍺

Also not in the list :-(

For people that do want to see what might be coming up, I *think* anyone should be able to see my comicbookrealm list. Go to https://comicbookrealm.com/xkonk/collection , then in the middle box that says Viewing xkonk's collection click the 'series' tab. That will give you a list of all my comics by series, however they determined when one series ended and another began (sometimes clear, sometimes not). Then if you want to see what books I have in a series, you can click that series and then click 'expand' to see the issue numbers. I'm not selling everything listed there, and there might be some errors/omissions because I have to select all of my comics manually and there are a lot, but you'll get the gist of it.

I'm not super-excited about selling to my LCS, except that I have so many that are worth so little that I'd rather just move them out quickly. But hopefully you all will help me with that here!

Or maybe even very fine.

Do not sell to your LCS. they will buy at half or under half to cover "their overhead".

Early 90's DC books, I'm looking for lots of those and would be cool with buying in lots.

Judging from your list, I only scanned the 1st page briefly though, it looks like you are heavier on Marvel's than DC.

So, yeah, I'm guessing you're not a DC guy.

I'd be down to buy a Lotta DC drek.

Yeah, much more Marvel and on top of that much more X-books. BUT, I was thinking anyway that I would start with the DC I have, so at least you'll have that going for you.

Thanks for the feedback everybody! I'm going to aim for a flash sale sometime the weekend of the 30th/1st starting with some DC. Then I'll keep them rolling through the rest of the year.

@CopperAgeKids I have a fair amount of 80's to early 90's DC I'd like to get rid of. If you have anything in mind in particular, send me a list and I'll see what I've got.

I've finally finished logging all my non-Marvel books. Before I start up any kind of scanning/pictures for a sale, is anyone actually interested in a bunch of 90s Image/Valiant/DC? I know most people already have as much as they can stand (and maybe more).
