Does anyone pay attention to the value of comics?

Reckon i probably have 400-500 Roy of the Rovers comics from 1979 to 1991 (not all consecutive but quite a number are).

Also have some Shoot magazines from mainly 82/83, about 80 of them.

Tiger & Eagle roughly 400 from 1979 to 1988, as above not all consecutive bit quite a number will be.

I've had a quick look on eBay but as i've not really been tracking them properly its difficult to tell their proper value.

(Its a wee bit alarming i thought i stopped buying Roy of the Rovers in my teens but it turns out got them right up until i was 21:hide::greengrin

Any help appreciated,
Cheers

as an aside any half sensible bids entertained :greengrin

You see the odd early 70s Scorcher & Score going usually based on the cover team / player feature. I have a nice Joe Baker issue. Not big values though.

I reckon folks are carefully cutting up their old Shoot! and Goal! Issues and selling the cuttings or photos individually. There are millions of single pages on eBay.

Would an almost consecutive collection of Broons and Oor Wullie books going back to the mid-80s be worth anything? Iím missing a year or 2 (I think).

Thanks Iggy.
Donít think I have the strength to sell pages individually but will get them down from the attic & remind myself whatís in there.
Been told to have a good 🔥!!

I'd suggest finding the missing years. I think that would make your collection more valuable. No idea what it would be worth though. There are probably a few full collections out there.

Might be a starting point. There are a few 80s issues on here.

Cheers. Iíve no idea why Iíve kept them to be honest - my mum buys me it every year and has done since I was a bairn. Iíll dig them out and see what Iím missing when I take this years down to file in the box.
