From the turn of the 20th century up until the 1950s, there were inexpensive fictional magazines printed up on cheap wood pulp paper called Pulp Magazines, or pulps. Due to their limited and short-run production, they are sought after collectibles now.
Do you own any pulp magazines? If so, here are our tips on how to go about selling them in order to meet your goals, whatever they may be:

Determine How Many You Have
Do you have one prized pulp magazine? Or do you have a massive uncataloged collection? This will determine how and where to best sell your pulps.
Decide Why You’re Selling
People sell collectibles for many reasons. Are you selling your pulps to free up space for other stuff? Do you just not want them anymore? Or are you looking to sell them for as much money as possible and don’t really care if the sales process takes some time? Where you sell determines how much time you can expect the process to take, as well as how much you can expect to get.
Get An Appraisal
Whenever you’re selling a valuable collectible, we always suggest getting a professional appraisal from a collectibles expert. Determining how much your collectibles are worth is more of an art than a science. Plus the market is always changing. If you have even the smallest idea that your pulps may be worth a decent amount, it can never hurt to get an appraisal done.
Approach The Best Buyer Or Buying Process
Did you decide that selling for the highest price possible is your main objective? Then you’ll want to either speak to an auction house, a broker, or sell yourself online. Did you decide that the time and effort to sell your pulps isn’t worth it and you’d rather just offload them fast for some easy cash? Then you should approach a local pawn shop or collectibles store.
