What price first Eagle annual?

Nicola Taylor via e-mail:

I AM writing to you in hope you can help me in finding out the price of a first edition Eagle Annual that my parents own. I have looked through your website and have been unable to find anything to help me in my quest!

The book was given to my father in 1950. It is in fair condition. My parents are just curious of the price and are considering selling. They have taken the book to be valued by a representative from Sotheby's, and they have recommended that the price would range a great deal – depending on the demand at the time from collectors (if that was the missing book from their collection).

If you are unable to answer, could you please consider all of your contacts in order to help me?

Which just goes to show you shouldn't really waste your time with Sotheby's. They didn't know, so they bluffed. Otherwise they would have told you the first Eagle Annual didn't appear until September 1951. The Eagle Book of Adventure Stories did, however, appear in late 1950. Could it be that?

Also, the condition of the book plays a very important part in determining its value. Fair is a very low grade – just above poor – but we suspect you're using it as a layman's term. Even so, it is difficult for us to accurately value the book without seeing it.

Getting back to the point, Eagle Annual 1 is worth about three times what the Eagle Book of Adventure Stories would fetch.

A Norfolk auction house recently offered the first three annuals as one lot which it anticipated would fetch between £20-30. On the other hand, a private seller recently offered 24 annuals from #1 to the 1975 edition (excluding 1974's) for in the region of £200 together.

The somewhat outdated 1997-98 Comic Book Price Guide indicates that a mint (perfect) condition copy of the first Eagle annual would be worth £45. Whichever way you view it, it is unlikely your parents are sitting on a fortune.
