Why It's Hard to Buy Comics on eBay
"Is this a 9.8, 9.4, 8.0, 4.0...?"
Way too many eBay sellers claim to "Grade Strict" or have "Years of Experience". We see auction after auction that claims to be NM, when it the book is only a fine.

Why take chances? We'll give you a FREE opinion of an eBay item you're thinking of buying.

Testimonials for Our eBay Appraisal Service
"I've tried out you're free appraisal service on the website and I am
more than happy with the service. Great response time. I'll be sure to use it again in future."
C. P., United Kingdom
Just like the articles at sellmycomicbooks.com, I got more than I expected with the eBay Comic Book Appraisal. Using the articles as inspiration, I found a comic issue that I thought would definitely go up after the upcoming Ant-Man Movie.
I searched eBay and found three that might be high enough grade to be considered investment worthy. I asked about them and got a prompt, insightful response that helped me hone on the best choice. In addition, they reminded me the top price to pay for it to reduce risk.
I won the auction and when the comic arrived, was overjoyed that I had chosen correctly. Having access to such advice really helps when trying decide where to invest. I certainly will continue utilize them whenever I invest in a comic.

- Looking for a specific book in a specific grade? Uncomfortable with navigating the 'real grades' on eBay versus the seller's "Advertised Grade"? Do you have a budget? Let us know what you are looking for, and we can help you find it.
- Think of our service as "Real-time third-party grading", without a fee!
- We'll help you buy what you THINK you are buying... It's easy for sellers to over-grade their inventory, and then issue the occasional refund. Why waste your time and effort?
- Many buyers are either unhappy with their eBay purchase and not willing to do anything about it, or they don't have the knowledge to realize that the advertised 9.4 NM is actually a 8.0 VF, because of a small stain on the back cover. Allow us to enlighten you!

More About our eBay Comic Book Appraisal Service
Here's what you can expect from our appraisal service before you buy comics online:
Appraisal of Raw (non-CGC)
If the comic book is NOT graded:
- Our appraisal team will consider the probable grade of the book, with a minimum grade and maximum grade range
- Sales history of comic books at that grade will be supplied for comparison
- We'll suggest a maximum bid, based on current market conditions and past sales
Appraisal of CGC-Graded
If the comic book is CGC graded:
- Our appraisal team will consider the potential for upgrade of the book, where possible (not easy from scans and photos)
- We'll provide past sales data, and point out the average return over recent years
- Overpaying for CGC-slabbed books is VERY common. We'll suggest a maximum bid value
