Most Valuable GOLD KEY COMICS published each year (1962-1984)

Most Valuable GOLD KEY COMICS published each year (1962-1984)

Key investment comics and historically important issuesGoldKeyMostValuable1962

Compiled and edited by comic book historian Terry Hoknes    www.HoknesComics.com     hoknes@hotmail.com

These are the 3 most valuable GOLD KEY comic books published in every year (Overstreet 2013 guide NM prices)

These books have proven to be consistently the most in demand key issues ever and are the best investments long term.

This list only include regular cover mass printed editions.  No variants or limited edition versions included.

This is the first time a yearly comparison has ever been made and the purpose is to show a few things. 

First of all it does truly highlight the major key books of every year.  It also shows quickly which titles seems to pop up the most often and are truly the most expensive series to collect.  Whether its HR Pufnstuf or Uncle Scrooge some titles are just more collected than others and bring higher $ amounts even to non-key issues in a run. 

Note its easy to see when a new hero age begins and a bunch of key books stand out with very high price runs during the gold and silver ages.  

Note that some years have lesser keys standing at the front of the line and are for their age a better investment. This can always be seen with most books from the 1950’s which are much more affordable and scarcer than any more recent books.

Any books from 1977 to the present are much more common as comic book shops became more present and offered back issues.  For many more current years its scarcer issues of long running titles that rank highest even though they are not key issues.
