An eight month project to document my comics is now done. 13,534 comics with an estimated sale value of just north of $50K. Meaning, if I sell them I might get 15K out of them. 27 boxes, 521 slabbed comics. The big value items are the 1-40 first run of Walking dead (two sets) and the Bendis Ultimate Spiderman run. Of a bit of a shock, the crime comics from the late 50's are worth nothing. As in the two boxes full of old shit might sell for a whopping $30/box.

How much did they cost you originally?

Average out to about $2 a book and that is about right. This is over 20+ years of comics purchases or about $1K a year tops.
