24. Comic Books
The most expensive comic book ever sold was issue 1 of The Man of Steel, which sold for $3.2 million. And many rare volumes sell for thousands of dollars, if only you can find them. On an episode of Storage Wars, one of the regulars lamented the fact that he found a storage locker full of comics, and yet he sold them all to a comic expert instead of doing the research one by one. If you plan to sell comic books, be careful. Even if you have a rare volume, that doesn’t necessarily mean you can sell it for the high prices you find online. You need to pay for them to get graded by a professional before you even try to sell something valuable. Every little crease, tear, or imperfection is going to affect the comic’s grade. Earlier on this list, I mentioned how I was able to buy an entire baseball card collection, and ended up giving them all away. The same thing happened with comic books. With so many TV shows revealing the true value of comics, it’s very difficult to find a collection where the person genuinely didn’t know how much they could potentially be worth.
