Default You guys rock... but now what do I do

You guys have been a lot of help in terms of lending advice on what to buy... the question now turns when to sell... I am sitting on Nowhere Men #1, #2, #3...all first prints... should I unload now or wait awhile and keep collecting the series and if so whats the best way to do that? BIN on eBay or list as auction?

Also, my LCS has about 20 copies of NM #3...should I load up?

Thanks in advance for your wisdom... pretty fun being able to entertain myself through the comics and sell duplicates to pay for that entertainment!

Best,

Taylor

Keep one set of 1-3 and sell the rest. 1-3 has been selling for around 60 and thats 20 bucks a book so not too shabby but this one has room to grow. Hold onto it IMO

^^^^ This helps out alot to put it as VF-NM it keeps you safe and in a wide range. and when they get it!
I was talking to my wife and she suggested selling one now for 20 wait a week and sell the other one if the prices go up for NM #3... IDK if this is a good idea? I may have 2nd prints of 1&2 by this weekend and I can sell a set for maybe 40-50 bucks... Maybe? I don't know if the price would be that high.

Do you guys reccomend getting anything 2nd print?

I am looking to branch out into comics as soley an investment for flipping and not collecting or reading.

Second prints from what I see don't really sell... it just really depends on a lot of different variables. I personally don't get them. I have some but solely for the personal reasons.

Nowhere Men 2nd prints = double down! Low print run and good to sell in sets.
