YOU'VE GOT STUFF TO SELL?

At Jetpack Comics we pride ourselves on making very competitive offers on all collectibles.  You can drop off your collectibles any time.  One of our staff will have you fill out a form.  Once evaluated we will contact you.  Be sure you follow our guidelines below to get the most money.  

Items will be made a CASH* and a store credit** offer unless we find it not worth a cash offer.  You have 30 days to decide which, if any offer, you want. 

*Cash offers are paid in the form of a company check. 

**Store Credit cards have NO cash value and are applicable towards merchandise and events at their retail price. In other words, you can't use them to get the discount price on boxes of Magic, Bricks of HeroClix, the 3/ $11 or 6/$20 deal on boosters, Daily Deals, etc, or use it on any CASH ONLY deal we offer**

Merchandise must belong to the seller and sellers must have proper ID and be over the age of 18. 

Anyone under the age of 18 MUST have a parent or guardian with them. 

If you chose NOT to accept our offer YOU must pick up your stuff.  We can not give it to someone else.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OFFERS ARE FINAL and NON-NEGOTIABLE.

We're not Pawn Stars.  If our offer was negotiable then we would not have made you the best offer we could.

 

A FEW TIPS

THE FOLLOWING SUGGESTIONS WILL HELP YOU GET THE BEST OFFER FOR YOUR UNWANTED COLLECTIBLES!

CLEAN IT - ORGANIZE IT - UNDERSTAND IT - LEAVE IT

  • Clean It!
    • Your collectibles should be clean and appealing!  Dog hair and dirt in the box aren't going to get you more money!  In fact it's exactly opposite of that. Dust off the boxes and Windex the bubbles and windows.  If we have to clean it then it is worth less to us.  The more work we do, the less money you get!

  • Organize It! 
    • Why?  More work for us means less money for you. That means comics in alpha-numeric order!  Cards sorted by RARITY & Set (color sorting matters).  Toys bagged up with their proper accessories!  If you're not sure how to best organize your collectibles, drop us an email at jetpackcomics@gmail.com and we'll let you know! 

  • Understand It!
    • Know what you are looking to get for your stuff. It's YOURS!
    • If your request is too high we will not be able to review your items.  
    • If your expectation is out of line we won't even be able to review what you have.  
    • How do you figure it out?  Look at completed sales on eBay! Be sure you understand the terms you are seeing when you research an item, and remember that if we buy it, we have to make a profit. So if it sold on eBay for $50, we're not going to pay you $50 for it.  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.  
    • Completed Sales on eBay can be find by clicking the SOLD radio button on the bottom left of an eBay search screen.  Still not sure?  Email us.  This is the most important part of your research.   We review ebay SOLD listings (not what people are asking for but items that actually sold) to determine fair market value for items.  
    • Our offer is based on a % of that number
    • Low $ sold items get a smaller % (25 - 40).
    • Higher $ sold items get a higher % (50 - 75).

  • Leave It!
    • Running our retail store comes first.  If we can, we will look at your things when you drop them off, but that rarely happens.  Our offers include the box, tote, bag or refrigerator that you haul your stuff to us in, so pack up your stuff in a container you don't want back!  If you want the tote back we will deduct $5 to $10 dollars from the offer, because we need something to store it in! 

WHAT CAN I BRING IN?

  • TOYS - TOYS - TOYS - Bring us your items of fun from days gone by! We want em! Bring us 1 or a 100.  New or used (Note that NEW and UNOPENED gets you the most $$ but we'll even take cool used toys as well). Remember, you'll get more the cleaner the packages are!
  • DVDs, CDs, Video Games - DVD's and CDs must have cases and be playable.  Too many scratches and we won't want them.  Clean up the packaging and you'll get more.  Alphabetize them and we might kiss you!  Video Game Consoles / Parts / Pieces must be in working order.
  • MAGIC, POKEMON, YU GI OH cards - Magic will net you the most.  Again, organize them by rarity and set to get the most for them!   Pokemon and Yu Gi Oh get you a little bit.  Try to organize them by rarity as well.  Got some other types of CCGs?  We probably won't want them. Magic card offers are based on a % of the Star City Games BUY LIST. (not what they are selling them for but what they are purchasing them for).  Yu Gi Oh and Pokemon are based on the prices we sell them for which is much less than their actual value.
  • GRAPHIC NOVELS and TRADE PAPERBACKS - The better the condition the more you get, but we want em all.  Please keep in mind that many graphic novels go on clearance and we know which ones those are.  All offers are based on their most recent, lowest, retail price!
  • Role-Playing & Board Games - Just like everything else, the better the condition, the more you're gonna get! Please make sure to bring all the pieces. 
  • COMIC BOOKS- Of course comic books.   Comic Books should be in alpha-numeric order, by title.  Before you get out of control we're going to bust 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 worth money. Just because it is autographed it does not mean it is worth money. A shiny foil cover does not make it worth more nor does tyvek, plastic, newspaper or anything else!  It was a sales gimmick. 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 were printed and very few are worth any real money!

    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 1700. 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!
