Comic Books price guide ad - 1983

This ad compliments of Rob Kelly.

Who hasn't turned their comics into cash at one point or another?
I mean, besides people who don't buy comics.

Come on now, we've all been strapped, needed some quick money (don't fancy prostitution?) and have had to rifle through our beloved stash of goodies (do fancy prostitution?)
This is the time when you need to know how much that Solar Man of the Atom lot you got from a relative who thought they were giving a quality gift, is going to go for (although I don't know that a guide book from 83 is going to help you).

You could go straight to the local comic book store/dealer. But do you trust him to be fair? Or does your comic book sense tingle whenever you get near, knowing that a thief is in your midst.
Now you can live monies and without fear!
The Official *insert year* Price Guide to Comic Books is here! Complete with crazy background!

"But Damian, why are you telling us about this? The Atom isn't on there."

Au contra ire fool. That's some Jose Luis Garcia Lopez looking lineup
I'm nothing if not helpful.

i sold the majority of my 15,000 + collection to help defray the cost of going to the Joe Kubert School(oh, the irony!) and i had some real gems in there: a lot of 60s Marvel #1s, a lot of 40s and 50s DCs, and got seriously violated, repeatedly, on their values.

it was not a pleasant experience.
