How much do comic books on average cost.
I know graphic novels go for 15+ dollars, but I don’t know how much comics cost anymore. I haven’t bought any in a while so I don’t want to seem like a dunce.
Most comics today cost around $3.00..
how much did a book cost in the 1960s.
i was reading this book and it said that everything was alot cheaper back then. so i’m just wondering, how much would a book cost in the 1960s? thanks!
I have some paperback books from the 1960’s with cover prices under a dollar. I wasn’t in a position to buy hardcover books myself, but I believe that most hardcover books went for $5 or less….However, salaries were a lot lower back then. My dad earned under $8,000 per year for an engineering job with Hughes Aircraft back then, and Hughes was one of the higher-paying employers in the Electrical Engineering field. A new grad in EE nowadays could expect a starting salary of $60,000-85,000 from one of the aerospace defense contractors, and an EE with a security clearance and 5 years experience in the right specialty might make $75,000-125,000.Other things that were cheaper that I remember very clearly: A loaf of white sandwich bread was 25 cents, 15 if you got it on sale; a pound of hamburger meat was 25 cents to 50 cents a pound (generic hamburger vs. ground sirloin); milk was 98 cents a gallon; candy bars like Milky Way or Hershey’s were 5 cents each; gasoline was 24-29 cents a gallon for self-serve (as low as 19 cents a gallon for “gas war” stations), 30-36 cents a gallon for full serve; a new Chevy or Ford station wagon could be bought for around $3,000. Postage stamps cost a nickel, Cokes cost a dime from a vending machine plus 5 cents deposit on the bottle. You could get a Foster’s Freeze vanilla chocolate-dip soft serve cone for 20 cents, and at Sav-On you could get a rainbow Sherbet single scoop for a nickel.Comic books were a nickel or a dime; magazines were a dime to a quarter. You could buy a Hi-Flyer kite at the toy store for 15 cents and ball of string to fly it with for a dime. $25 would buy you a shiny new Schwinn bicycle. You could get a pair of sneakers, AKA “tennis shoes,” at Sears for $2-5 but they were simple canvas-topped, rubber-soled shoes; Converse was the only “brand” athletic shoe. Coffee was a nickel or a dime and nobody had heard of frappaccino or latte or any of the fancy-schmantzy coffee drinks now popular.Long time gone…*sigh*

How much does Comic grading cost.
How mcost does itCost to grade a comic and can I just get one comic graded. Also do I haver to have an account that cost money. Or can I just pay for the comic grading. I don’t care what company does it but when you give the pricing state what companies do what
Most grading companies have a sliding scale – the more valuable the book is, the more it costs to have it graded, so they can’t quote you a price in advance.If you only have one comic to grade it may be more worthwhile to find a comic shop near you which does business with a grading company (such as CGC) on a regular basis. They probably will be willing to send it in to them as a part of their monthly or what-have-you shipment to have it graded. They should be able to quote you an estimated price by pre-grading it. “This looks like it’d be around an 8.5, that’d cost $___.” They might charge for the privilege, but OTOH you won’t have to deal with shipping it yourself.

About how much do comic books cost.
I’ve never been into comic books, the reason being that I felt it was too late to understand the story lines, but now the DC comics reboot I feel it is my chance to get into comic books. About how much do comic books cost of do you know about these new ones will cost?Also, I don’t know anything about…
DC books go for 2.99, bigger issues go for 3.99. Marvel books go for 3.99. Most everything else I’ve seen goes for 2.99.If you collect comics with the hope that they go up in value you’re in for a disappointment. It’s a common misconception that comics are a good investment. Old comics are worth something because comics used to be throwaway entertainment, making them rare. Nowadays everyone who collects comics keeps them in such good condition that they’ll never rise in value.
