Top 50 Most Valuable Silver Age Comics

List of the 50 Most Valuable Silver Age Comics
Last updated November 13, 2016

This article continues the list of rare and expensive comic books we began in the Golden Age.

Now we move beyond the ultra-rare Golden Age comic books into the Silver Age.

Let's get down to business. Below are the top 50 most valuable comic books from the Silver Age.

Notes on Top 50 Silver Age Comics

Silver Age comics issues are arranged in roughly correct order of value, but sometimes exceptional sales will push a "lower down" issue higher in the table.

This means the comics we've highlighted may not be perfectly ranked in order of most to least valuable.

Have we missed a key Silver Age comics issue? Let us know! We'll put it right.

Pretty much any of these Silver Age comics can be found at comic book conventions, or in online auctions, if you're not fussy about condition. There are few truly rare comics from the Silver Age.

Still, finding any of the Silver Age comics listed above in higher grades (Very Fine or above) is far from easy, and if you do, you will have quite an asset on your hands. Click here to have your comics appraised for free by Sell My Comic Books.

What IS the Silver Age anyway? The Silver Age is easier to pin down than the Golden Age. It begins, all agree, with Barry Allen's Flash and Showcase #4 in 1956.

The ending is somewhat less easy to be certain of, but most put it somewhere in 1970, as comics became more "serious" and "relevant".
