Appraisals and Purchases

Appraisals and Grading

Our rate for appraising and grading comic books (i.e. for insurance purposes or personal records) is $20/hr.

This service is only available at our Clyde Avenue location.

As we have very limited staff handling these requests, we unfortunately cannot provide turnaround time estimates for this work. You will only be invoiced for the time that is spent on your collection.

To help us keep processing times lower, we ask that clients focus on smaller selections of their more valuable comics rather than bringing an entire collection. An example would be a comic book with a first appearance of a character.

If you are interested in this service, please contact us directly to set up an appointment to drop off your comics!

Certified Guaranty Company (CGC)

Unfortunately we do not ship comics to CGC.

Buying Collections

We occasionally purchase vintage collections at our Clyde Avenue location, although we are very selective about the items that we take in.

At this time we are most interested in comic collections from the 1970s and earlier, books containing first appearances of characters, and other key issues.

If you have some comics that you think we might be interested in, the best way to get in touch is by emailing to us some pictures or a list of the highlights in your collection, and we'll have our experts take a look!
