I received a few responses from interested buyers regarding my two long boxes of comics. One guy only wanted to trade (records/gift cards/stuff I don't want) and kept sending really odd offers. I'm sure that can be fun, but I want the space and cash! Today I met with an interested buyer, nice guy. He looked through the boxes, noting the comics he wanted, and made a solid offer on the lot. It was for less than what I had listed, but I had a nice chat with another collector and I think we both are happy with the outcome. And I'm glad they are going to a good home! This lot was a bulk of comics that would not have been worth the time or effort to sell individually. The proceeds are going to be set aside, along with any future sales money, so I can see what my final tally is.
The next step is selling/listing small lots and individual comics that are worth more. I have sold one or two on Ebay in the past. Anyone have any tips for the best way to get boxes for shipping? And/or the best shipping process? I rarely ship items and don't want to overspend on postage or packing materials. Any other good options to sell besides Ebay/Craigslist?
These comics are raw/ungraded as well. There may be a few worth sending to CGC for grading, but I have not done that before. Any feedback on general guidelines on what comics to send in would be appreciated. I was thinking of sending in a couple Valiant Comics for grading? Like a Rai 0, in hopes it is a 9.8. I realize I may lose money though if they come back 9.6 or 9.4. So a little hesitant. I may post a few pics in Grade My Comic and see if they are worth sending in.
Here are my boxes that I sold! Goodbye dear friends!
