must belong to the seller and sellers must have proper ID and be
over the age of 18.
Please take a few minutes and read through our BUYING guidelines
WE DO NOT BUY SPORTS
CARDS or SPORTS MEMORABILIA including NASCAR items!
WE MUST SEE THE ITEMS
- We can not evaluate your item unless we see it. You have to
bring it in. We can't even comment on it. If we do not
have it in front of us we have no idea what it is worth.
PLEASE DO NOT CALL AND ASK.
We're always busy at Jetpack Comics. We have staff members that specialize in different
areas & departments. Many of our staff are part-time and have
additional tasks and responsibilities to accomplish when they are in
the store. Sometimes there are people on hand that can look at your collectibles but just
more often there are not. Be prepared to drop your stuff
off if we don't have the time!
WHAT WILL WE CONSIDER BUYING?
Yu Gi Oh Cards
Occasionally we will purchase DVDs, CDs, Video Games, Records, Movie Posters, Old Magazines, and
Not sure if we'd be interested in what you have.
Drop us an email
email@example.com and we'll let you know if we could use
what you have.
The following suggestions
will help you get the most for your unwanted collectibles!
Organize & clean your stuff** - Why? If you
don't care enough about what you own to organize and clean it, why
would we care about it? More work for us means less money for
you - a whole lot less. That means comics in alpha-numeric
order! Cards sorted by RARITY & Set (color sorting matters -
rarity does as well). Toys bagged up with their proper
accessories! Dust off the boxes and Windex the bubbles.
If we have to clean it then it is worth less to us. The more
work we do, the less money you get!
** You must give us an idea of how much you are
looking for. **
This is always the toughest part of the drop off, but if you don't
know what your stuff is worth, how do you know if we are being fair
to you? Seriously? It's your stuff! You should
know what it is worth and what you'd like to get for it. We
encourage you to research what you own. We are not offering to
appraise your items. We're simply offering to buy them, if the
price works for us. If your price is too low we'll pay more.
Seriously. We can give you plenty of examples of people that under
valued their stuff. More often though, people over value it.
If you realistically know what you want you stand a better
chance of getting it. How do you figure it out? Look at completed sales
on eBay. That's what we use to determine the real market
value of an item. Make sure you are comparing apples to
apples. If your book is not CGC graded then you can't compare
it to the CGC graded price one sold for.! Remember
that if we buy it, we have to make a profit on it and pay all the
associated fees that eBay incurs, so if it sold on eBay for
$50 we're not going to pay you $25 for it. Be sure you
understand the terms you are seeing when you research an item.
If you do not know what CGC is then your
comic is not CGC certified and not getting that premium price.
Near Mint is the same as like new is the same as the brand new
comics you see on our shelf. Do not research what someone is
asking for the items but research what they actually sold for.
There is always a HUGE difference!
Running our retail store comes first for us so that means sellers
may have to wait & be interrupted while we attend our patrons.
YOU ARE ALWAYS BETTER OFF DROPPING YOUR STUFF
OFF. Dropping it off means we can spend more time with it.
research it better and get a better handle on what you have.
Pack up your stuff in a container you don't want
back - Our offer includes the box, tote, bag or refrigerator
that you haul your stuff to us in! If you want the tote back
we will deduct $5 to $10 dollars from the offer. WE need
something to store it in!
BOTTOM LINE -
The more work we have to do, in relation to your saleable goods, the
less the offer will be! Of course we'll take just about
anything from the pop-culture world!
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OFFERS ARE FINAL.
Offers are not negotiable.
** IMPORTANT ** After
we review your items we will call & email you. If we do not
hear back from you with in 7 days we will assume you are abandoning
your items. After 14 days they go to off site storage so an
appointment will be necessary to get them back. After 30 days
they are disposed of.
** important disclaimer for
definition ** Please keep in mind that we are
NOT appraising your collection & collectibles when you bring your
things in. We are making offers on them to purchase them.
If you are looking for an appraisal we will be happy to provide
written documentation of the value of your collectibles for a fee.
We have provided this service for insurance companies as well as
individuals looking to find out more about their merchandise.

- Of course comic books. Comic Books should
be in alpha-numeric order, by title. Before you get out of
control we're going to displace a few myths here.
1990 and newer is not considered OLD in comic book
terms. Yup, it may be 20 years but for our purposes it
represents the decade of garbage! 1970 and earlier is OLD.
Just because a comic book is a #1 it does not make it
Just because it is autographed it does not mean it is
A shiny foil cover does not make it worth more nor does
tyvek, plastic, newspaper or anything else! It was a sales
There is no such thing as a comic book being still
in a sleeve, wrapper, holder, plastic. Someone put the
comic book in that and that does not make them worth more money.
In fact, if the COMIC BAG (that is the proper name) is dirty &
yellowed it decreases the value.
When it says "collector's item" or has some other hyped
up selling point to suck in buyers, it's usually a lie!
The 1990's are considered to be one of the worst times
for comic books. Billions of comics printed and few worth
The state of the comic book industry is nowhere near what it was
a couple of decades ago. Where there were once tens of
thousands of comic book and collectible shops worldwide, there
are now just a few more than 1500.
What does that mean to you? It means that what was once
worth money isn't anymore. There are more copies of Spawn
#1 available than the world will ever need, and Jim Lee's X-Men
#1 is not a HOT & sought after book. We've been doing this
for well over 30 years. We can look through 300 comics and
ten minutes and tell you which ones have any value.
Typical over stock comic book junk is about $10 a
long box (that's a 300 count standard comic book box). The better the books, the more you get!
The older the books the better you are going to do. We
currently have well over 1000 long boxes of typical comic book
junk in our basement. We'll always add more to it but not
at a premium price!
*** THIS IS IMPORTANT *** - If you look up your
comics on eBay and find that they sell for 1 - 3 dollars we're
not going to offer a percentage of that. We've already got
hundreds of thousands of books like that.
