Need Some Help: Selling a Huge Collection7013

Collector Norbi private msg quote post Address this user
Hi everyone, this is a first for me, my first Thread in this Forum, so I apologize for any Newbie-Mistakes in Advance.

I have currently a sad task to perform, a good friend of mine and a lifelong collector for US-Comic Books (like myself) passed away a while ago, and I promised his wife to help selling of some of his collection.

It's a little bit difficult for me, for selling an amount of about 30000 US-books in Germany is not so easy. Been doing so with some success in the German Ebay with the more common books, but it is not possible to get the proper prices on some keys, the german collector of US-comics is some kind of rare.

So I'm cherry-picking some titles and will offer them aside of ebay on some collector-forum, asking for advice in grading and offering the books ...

I'm starting with the following books, I'm grateful for comments!

Sorry to hear. Are you interested in doing a bulk sale or individual sales? My sister is in Germany and she could buy for me and ship but I would be interested in a bulk buy.

I'm sure you could sell those books without any problem. Not sure about the rest.

I'm perfectly aware of the difficulties selling a huge amount of books. But I will from time to time set more interesting books in this thread. Curious what will happen ...

Takes labor but separate the $20 and up books and wholesale the rest, try for $100 per box for the chaff. Stores, shows, ads. Still gonna take a long time.

Good advice, if the books were in the US, but here in Germany, it doesn't work that way. But we will see ...

Man, tough. Maybe US military base newspapers, I know the bases here have their own. See if an ad gets any hits

I agree with the others. A list or at the very least a good idea of titles, it may garner some more interest. I will say that I have liked what I have seen so far.
