I have a couple of different comics from the 1960s that I want to sell (I seem to have collected some doubles over the years!). I just wanted to know how I go about selling my comics for the highest value?

Asker has accepted an answer.
Here is what I would do:
If they are something really special from the 60s and they are in a high grade, I would consider having them CGC graded. It costs about $25 per book. Once a book is CGC graded, the value rises a significant amount. Obviously not everything is CGC worthy (purely based on cost), but if they are decent 60s books, I would!
I see you are in Australia, here is some CGC info: http://www.cgccomics.com/services/dealer_listing.asp?State=Australia
I hope this helps!

Well, first of all you have to know exactly how much it’s worth. There’s little point in you trying to get loads of cash for your comic if it’s just a run-of-the-mill comic. The fact that you think it’s awesome probably won’t help to determine it’s value! :)
First thing you need to do is to get your comic book graded. You can do this through CGC or PGX who do professional impartial grading.
Then use the Overstreet Price Guide to determine exactly how much your comic is worth but make sure to read the 4 page guide on the condition of your comics. The condition is everything irrespective of how old the comic is.
After that, you should compare prices online for the same comic. Be realistic though. If you sell online on an auction site, chance are you won’t get what you wanted for the comic. You might be better to go onto a collectors site (like this one!) and find somebody who is actively looking for the comic you’re trying to sell. You’ll more than likely get a much better price for it that way.
