Services

Selling your books

We buy books in many different subject areas. Of particular interest are art, illustrated, children's, science fiction, military, history, philosophy, literature, and science. We also purchase silver and golden age comics, vintage pulps, and some vintage magazines. Condition, edition, and contents are all important when determining what we will pay for books.

Books buyers are typically available Monday through Saturday in the afternoon. This is not a set schedule and can vary on a day to day basis. We recommend calling in advance to make sure a "buyer" is available. For large collections it is best to set up an appointment which you may do over the phone (651-644-7605) or through email.

If you have a list or spreadsheet of the books you may email it to us for our perusal (orders@midwaybook.com). Make sure that each book includes information on the author, title, publisher, and date of publication. Photos can also be helpful. Note that we are unable to make offers or give valuations without seeing the books in person, though a list can allow us to express interest and let you know if it would be worth your time to bring them over.

 

House Calls

We can make house calls for collections that are of particular interest. House calls are typically only done with collections of over 200 hardcover books in subject matters of interest to us. An appointment is necessary.

 

Book Search

Our website includes only a fraction of our massive inventory of books, comics, and vintage magazine. If you cannot find what you are looking for on our website give us a call or email and we will check our shelves and get back to you.
