Vintage Comic Book Appraisals:

Comic book appraiser

With over 600 World record prices selling vintage comic books we know the market. Why spend your money for an appraisal that will get thrown out by a court or the IRS if it is ever challenged? Why would you hire an appraiser to appraise your comic book collection if that appraiser does not hold a designation from a a group certified by the Appraisal Foundation?

If your appraiser does not give you a USPAP compliant appraisal the IRS, or the court is likely to throw it out, and you will have not only wasted your money on the appraisal, but you may well lose your case!

Let us put a value on your collection. We stand ready to back it up in court (standard rate apply) and defend our appraisal opinion.

Here is what the National Auctioneers Association says about their GPPA class:

GPPA (Graduate Personal Property Appraiser)

WHAT is GPPA? GPPA is very different from NAA’s other designations in two ways: It’s longer (five days), and it’s not about auctions.

GPPA is designed to give auctioneers both more skill and acumen in appraising personal property and also another potential revenue stream as a professional appraiser.

Attendees learn to appraise all types of personal property, from art to antiques, heavy equipment to general household goods, vehicles to collectibles. The class focuses on process rather than asset class: attendees complete a minimum of three appraisals in class.

GPPA teaches attendees to appraise according to USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice), which is a two-day class also offered by NAA.

HOW can you get the Designation?

  • Register for the CES class.
  • Before the class starts, you’ll receive a link to the prerequisite course and exam. Before you come to class, you must pass the exam. (unless you hold another NAA designation)
  • Attend all five days of the designation class.Become USPAP compliant by taking the two day (15 hour) USPAP class and passing the exam. NAA offers USPAP in conjunction with GPPA, and most attendees take the two classes in succession, resulting in seven days of class.
  • After the class, to obtain the designation, submit USPAP compliant appraisal.
  • All requirements must be completed within 90 days of taking the GPPA course.
