What was the Marvel Value Stamp?
The 100 stamps in Series A could be clipped from the letters pages of various Marvel comic book titles and then taped into a 16-page Stamp Book which Marvel sold through the mail. The Series B stamps were 100 puzzle pieces that could be put together to form 10 larger images in a second Stamp Book.
The program destroyed the value of countless Marvel comics of this era, and missing value stamps are the bane of serious Bronze Age collectors. But if you were of a certain age when the program began, you may have feelings of nostalgia for these little stamps, despite the horror they wreaked on your collection.
Do all the comics that are being presented at the Comic Confluence IV auction have the stamps?
YES! Unless noted in the description of “missing”, “removed”, or “clipped”, they all have the stamps attached.
Do the stamps affect the value?
Just as any flaw would affect the value of the comic – a missing stamp can reduce the value by over 80%!!!!
