Batman LOTDK: 'Freak' mini-series [1997]

Hello all. I just bought Batman LOTDK #91 - 93 for the sum total of £2 [$2.55].  The owner said they were unwanted and only read once, which I can believe, as the comics themselves look in very clean, unblemished condition. The corners are square and there are very few tick-marks to the spines...hardly visible. I was thinking of getting them graded for future collecting. Any thoughts?

Only a small percentage of books are worth getting graded professionally. These don't fall into the category. If you're interested in grading in general, I recommend picking up a copy of Overstreet's grading guide.

Hi there!

I would never discourage someone from getting a book graded if they just want to do so for their own personal pleasure, but as for any "future collecting", there's no value in doing so. These books are not valuable or in demand. A NM+ set just sold for 99 cents on eBay.  It's unlikely that they're going to experience a major shift in value.

So, that's a bit of a downer.

That being said, if you like 'em just because you like 'em, put them in a nice mylar bag and board, and enjoy them for years to come!

Thanks guys! I was thinking long-term, as you never can tell in the world of comics. I believe boarding and bagging them is the way to go, so that is what I will do. The covers look amazing though and I intend to keep them that way.
