Valuation

Should I get my comic books certified?

Anyone who wants to sell a comic book should ask this question first. It can make sense to use a professional service (such as Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) or the Professional Grading eXperts (PGX)), but this can be a pricey proposition, not only because you must pay the company for the assessment and valuation, but also because you must pay for shipping. Imagine the expensive fees involved with insuring Golden, Silver, and Bronze Age collectible comics!

ComicConnect.com has a quick and valuable guide, How To Identify Your Comic’s Title & Issue Number. This wonderful company is quite happy to review your comic book collection at no cost, and can educate you as to whether your valuable warrants an official grading.

Before contacting ComicConnect, however, we recommending compiling a list of the books that you have so that their experts can give you a more accurate appraisal.
