What to do with my comic book collection?
I can recall the first issue of the Uncanny X-Men that read from cover to cover was #176 back in 1983.
Years later I started buying comic book directly from a distributor off of the 401 and Appleby line, for the life of me I cannot recall he name of that comic book distribution center. I do recall getting their catalog and ordering for a discounted price off the cover value as long as a certain amount was placed. You were also able to go through back issues for a discounted rate. I recall picking up a lot of the X-Men titles from the 87 Fall of the Mutant series way back for 60% of cover value back then.
Most of these comics I was selling at flea markets and managed to only keep one copy a piece for my own collection. Occasional I have a few issues that have a few more copies. My inventory was split with my comic book partner at some point, who sold all of his issues, however my collection of over 20 boxes
still remains with me to this day. It has been almost 20 years since I have been actively collecting comics, I wanted to explore what the value may be and the best approach to making some money back on this old investment. I needed to find a place to record all my titles and a way to figure out which ones were in demand and of a fair sized vale. I have some good leads to complete this initial steps and in the days to come I will post and update the findings.
