How to Sell or Consign Your Books to Black Ace
We must repeat: Unless the books are very scarce or unusually fragile, we seek only books in nice collectable condition. Please review GENERAL GUIDELINES under BLACK ACE WANT LIST.
On regular vintage paperbacks for stock, we usually pay 15% to 25% of our selling price for cash, a little more for credit. Credit may be used for any books we sell or auction. There are several ways to do this depending how much time and effort you wish to invest. We recommend that you phone us first to briefly discuss what you have.
You can arrange your books by PUBLISHER and NUMBER and send a list with just that information PLUS any details you can provide about their condition. Of course, if a book has no number, please list the author and title too. Include how to contact you and your name and "number" (i.e. phone, fax, e-mail, address). We'll get back with you promptly telling you what we can use and approximately what we'd offer (contingent on our assessment of condition after seeing the books).
If you prefer not to bother with lists, send a small box (perhaps 20 books) and be sure to include a note with your name and how to contact you and if you are interested in cash or credit offers. We'll contact you promptly with our offers and/or comments. If our offer is not accepted, we'll pay return postage on that first box.
We also accept scarce, top-condition and "high-end" books for auction consignment. We seek books that are likely to auction for a minimum of $35. Please contact us in advance to discuss books you want to consign for auction.
Payment terms for auction consignments:
Payment is made about 3-4 weeks after the end of the auction. Note that multiple consignments may be split among several auctions and that it may take several months before consigned books start to appear in auction.
We also make outright purchases of books with auction potential, and frequently pay up to 50% of anticipated high bid price.
