Do Pawn Shops Buy and Sell Comic Book Collections?

Pawn shops are known for selling various valuable items for a fraction of the cost. They also purchase and offer loans for items so you can get out of a cash crunch. But do they buy and sell comic books?

The answer is yes, some pawn shops will buy and sell comic books. However, it’s important to research to get the best experience possible. Read on to learn more about the process.

Comic Book Pricing

Do some research to determine how much you can expect to make from your comic book sale or loan, or how much you should be paying for a comic book.  Comics Price Guide will give you some indication of what your comic book is worth. You can also look at seller sites like eBay to see what comic books are going for.

Several factors determine a comic book’s price as follows:

·  Rarity and Demand: A comic book with a low print run is rarer and will typically sell for more.

·  Age: Older comic books are usually more expensive. The most collectible editions came out between 1938 and 1979.

·  Type: Superhero comics are usually the most valuable. First origin and first appearance issues are especially sought after.

·  Art: Original comic book art will make the item more valuable.

Consider the Condition

The condition will also factor into the price you buy or sell your comic book for. Comics that are in mint condition will sell at a higher price point. If your comic book is ripped or torn, the pawn shop may not buy it.

Shop Around

Some pawn shops offer better pricing than others. Shop around to determine who will buy your comic book for the most money, and who will sell it at the most affordable prices.

Pawn shops are typically prepared to haggle with customers, so use your negotiating skills to get the best prices. Tell them you are shopping around for the best rates so they will be more likely to make a deal.

Pounding the pavement to find the best pawn shop can be difficult. You can also check online reviews to find out about pricing. The reviews will also give you an idea of the level of service you can expect from the shop.

Make Sure the Pawn Shop Accepts Comics

Some pawn shops accept comics, but not all of them do. Call in advance to ensure the shop you are going to buys or sells comics, so you don’t waste your time.
