I will try and attach pics. I am new to this and am just looking for guidance. I know its easy to get taken advantage of if you do not know what you have. Hoping someone here can point me in right direction.

How do you know this to be true?

It’s easy. Lay the comic on a clean flat surface.

I should specify my best friend found these and I am helping her figure out if she should keep them or sell them. We do not know much about comics. She found someone nice to help but I am getting second opinions. Anyone have a suggestion.

Nice books. Get them graded quickly. 

By graded do you mean this site? or do local places grade too?

Option 1: make a list and the boards can help identify which ones to focus on.  If your photos are any indication though, most of those books are common and worthless.

Option 2: take it to a trusted comic shop and have them pinpoint the worthwhile books for you.  Then go to eBay and look up sold listings.  Bear in mind the listed condition of books versus what you have.  Again, based on the images, I would guess the condition to be VF at best.

If the book are in immaculate condition having the most valuable ones graded by CGC will maximize value. If not in super high grade they are still worth something but  probably not enough time to try and sell individually.  Bunch of photos will maximize their value on eBay

Long option... individually list on ebay.

 

Fast options:  send to mycomicshop or take to your LCS.
