Bush, Allen

My Top Ten Things for Rookie Collectors to Know: 1. Art is subjective to a "much smaller than some claim" degree. There IS a baseline value there. Do NOT buy an expensive piece without consulting a highly experienced, independent party (whom you know and trust) for valuation advice. 2. Do NOT buy things from people who solicit you directly via CAF. (If that HOT, NEW piece were such an easy sell, then why are they taking the time to e-mail you?) 3. Buy the piece that you like, but don't let the piece buy you. (In other words, don't grossly overpay because the piece is pretty.) 4. Do NOT TRUST pricing information from new people that you meet until they are time-tested or vouched for by people that you DO KNOW. Thieves run in packs. (Some CAF'ers DO grossly lie about the value of their art. And they lie for their friends.) 5. Don't go "Flea-Marketing" at an Art Dealer's. Comic Art Dealers are wonderfully nice people. They are businessmen whose business is art. There will not be any bargains here. You will pay prices ranging from retail to grossly overpriced. 6. Avoid trading with dealers. You will not have the rare pieces that they will pay top-dollar for. You will be recycling pieces that have been around (for the most part) and will get from 40-80% of a cash equivalent. 7. Trade with CAF'ers. (But, if they tell you that their piece is priced high because it is "such a beautiful example of xxx's work and art is SOOO subjective", then RUN, RUN, RUN!!! If the piece were such a great example and so nice then they would have already sold it for cash. If they tell you "I don't want to sell. I am not interested in money. I only want to trade." RUN, RUN, RUN. This means "I want double what my piece is really worth." 8. Buy from individuals on CAF (whom YOU solicit) before dealers. But, always know the value of a piece before you make an offer or inquire about a piece. 9. Your BEST values will typically be found at auction (Ebay, Comiclink, Heritage). But, don't get in a bidding war. Again, know your values first. 10. If you do not have an experienced mentor in this hobby, then you should not be investing money in this hobby. Comic art IS NO LONGER a guaranteed, solid "investment consistently beating the stock market." KNOWLEDGE is the key to Successful Buying/Trading. CASH is KING!
