We have another first here at Cardboard Prospector today, a comic book grab bag unveiling! Recently I was at the local Walmart looking for some retail cards for ripping on the new YouTube channel and I saw these comic book grab bags on the top shelf, consisting of 4 DC comics for only $9. Well, I shuffled through the packs and there was a single pack that had Harley Quinn showing as the top comic, so naturally, being a Harley Quinn collector, I had to pick up the pack and see what we could pull. I was honestly hoping that the entire pack would be Harley Quinn, but that wasn’t the case – so let’s see what I pulled!
I have to say that I am very impressed with the condition quality of the books considering the sales format. I half expected to have the books all with crushed corners and crease marks, but the books were exceptionally clean. To recap the video, the four books I pulled from this grab bag were:
– Future State Harley Quinn #1 Cover A 2021
– Justice League #27 Forever Evil Tie-In 2014
– Batman White Knight #6 Reg. Cover 2018
– Superman Top Cat #1 Special Reg. Cover 2018
Looking at recent sales data on eBay for these books, the most recent U.S. sales shows that the Future State Harley Quinn sold for $5.00, the Justice League for $3.00, the Batman White Knight for $6.00 and the Superman Top Cat for $3.00. So, a combined total of $17.00 in purchase value for only $9.98 at the local Walmart gives us a great value on this grab bag, plus the opportunity to add another Harley Quinn book to the personal collection makes this a win-win! Considering that that I could resell the remaining three books and turn a profit on them makes this a stellar deal!
I will say that there was a moment of excitement concerning the Justice League book, as my initial search for comps on eBay showed the books most recent sales price at $20, however, after some reading of the listing an looking at the pictures I realized they had the newsstand version of the book, which commanded a higher price compared to the direct sales version I and most everyone else on eBay had available. Bummer!
Overall, I think these grab bags are a fantastic value and I am happy with the purchase. I will be watching out for more Harley Quinn facing packs in the future to see if I can pull anything amazing. Stay tuned for that!

I started collecting cards when I was about 8 years old, with my passion being baseball cards. I grew out of collecting in my teens and spent the better part of my 20’s focusing on education and career. Now in my mid-30’s I have dove back in to collecting and now prospecting and investing in cards and comics as well. I like to write about ways to collect and invest and share my experiences in the collecting and investing world of sports cards and comics.
