So, what do you have hiding in the box in the back of the attic? The one you haven’t opened since you were a child, but has been following you from apartment to condo to house.
While it’s unlikely that you’ll find a comic book worth enough to retire on, there is always the hope that there is some gem mingled among our forgotten possessions — or worse, among the piles of stuff Mom threw away.
But keeping track of the value of certain comic books has become increasingly complicated. With multiple auction sites, such as Heritage Auctions, ComicConnect, eBay and more, the number of sales — many of which are high-end books commanding handsome sums — is huge.
For those who want a taste of some of today’s priciest comics, GoCollect.com gathers data from public sales on a variety of auction and social media sites, and keeps track of the biggest sales as they happen.
Following is a list of the Top 10 verifiable, public sales over the past year, as published by GoCollect.com.
Note: “CGC” stands for Certified Guaranty Company, a third-party grading service that rates the quality of comic books, trading cards, magazines, concert posters and more on 10-point scale (10.0 is perfect).
