Prop Store has been in business for over 20 years selling film and movie related collectibles to fans through its website (www.PropStore.com) and through auctions.  Prop Store built its reputation by hosting premiere prop and costume auctions, but also has expanded in recent years to offer posters, vintage toys, and comic art as part of its auction offerings.  

Prop Store will be hosting its next Toys, Comic Art & Collectibles Live Auction in February 2020 and we are currently seeking consignments.  For this auction, we are especially looking for Marvel, DC, and toy/movie related comic art to offer our broad base of distinguished collectors.  

This auction will occur in the US, out of Prop Store’s Los Angeles office.  Bidders will be able to bid online and over the phone. 

For those that have participated in Prop Store’s live auctions before, you’ll know that Prop Store produces a top-notch auction experience with a live auctioneer, intuitive auction platform, and a printed catalog with large images of each piece of art (no less than ¼ page per piece).

Although there are other auctions that offer comic art, we’re asking you to try consigning through Prop Store for the following reasons…

·        Proven Sales:  In 2018, sample sale prices (including Buyer’s Premium) included:

o   Steve Ditko Amazing Spider-man #32 Page 15 - £116,850/$153,074

o   Jack Kirby & Ayers Journey Into Mystery #84 Page 10 - £18,450/$24,170

o   Mike Zeck Detective Comics #600 Batman Pinup - £5,535/$7,251

o   John Byrne & Terry Austin Fantastic Four #286 Page 23 - £4,305/$5,640

·        Reserves:  We start all bidding at 50% of the low-end estimate and Prop Store allows consignors to have reasonable reserves on their items without additional fees – allowing you to protect your comic art investments

·        Rates:  Although there is a Buyer’s Premium, Prop Store charges 0% Seller’s Commission for Comic Art – allowing you to offer items at “no risk.” 

·        Customer Base:  Prop Store attracts customers from related hobbies that traditional comic art auctions do not – the auction will be presented along side collectible toys, but will also be marketed to collectors of movie/TV production art, props/costumes, and posters.  Through previous auctions, Prop Store has built a collector-base interested in different comic-related franchises including Marvel, Warner Brothers/DC, Star Wars, Star Trek, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Aliens, Predator, Judge Dredd, Terminator, Hellraiser, and others…

·        Marketing:  Prop Store markets each auction through robust social media campaigns, online videos, press, mailers, and through its website.  Check out Prop Store’s comic art information section at https://propstore.com/comicart/

·        Cash Advances:  Prop Store is offering cash advances for quality material.  

Please contact Chuck Costas at chuck@propstore.com to discuss items that you may want to consign.  And, for those attending the LA Comic Art Show (www.lacomicart.com) on November 10th, Prop Store will be collecting consignments at the show.
