My Comics bought it when I was $10 or more.

Bought that instead of Spiderman #1 with the last of my money......probably rarer!


Got the first series of Punisher....nothing older than that

My oldest is probably Showcase Presents #37 (1962) which was the first appearance of the Metal Men, it's not worth that much though as it's only CGC slabbed at 2.5.

I've only recently started hunting down older key issues, most of my collection is full runs of series from the 90's, I have pretty much every Batman and Detective since Knightfall which is my main focus.

For anything over a few hundred I'd want to check Overstreet's price guide but the following website can be handy:

http://www.comicspriceguide.com

You need to register to see all the details but looks like Daredevil (v1) #2 runs in at $1800 US if in NM condition

Most things need to be CGC'd to get the highest values these days.....I think

Thinking of buying Wolverine #1 by Claremont and Miller because it was just $30 six months ago now its $250 at ebay in NM condition .I think it has something to do with the movie.I never read that arc but know his Japan story.Going to find a CGC in here will post a pic soon my camera broke.

Everytime there is a new movie out the price jumps.
I remember when Spidey 3 was out anything Venom related jumped.

There are more copies of that comic CGC'd than any other. Don't buy into the hype that it's "rare" just because it's been slabbed.

I buy a lot of old stuff and I don't really find CGC adds anything to the sale price unless it's very high grade.

Started getting serious about my TMNT comic collection (from the 80's) , which are the oldest comics I own. Picked up first prints of #3, #4 and #5 a few weeks ago. Not necessarily rare but definitely hard to come by. They are probably the ones worth the most also. Have to save up for that issue #1 one though, its going to set me back at least $3000.

Pmed you with the bad news lol. Thanks for that but I have most of 3-9. And I generally try to stay away from buy single comics from the US, the postage system it has to go though makes me to nervous!
