Hello, I've got some Tintin books for sale, and I was wondering how much could I get for all of them?
I'm not an expert if it comes to that.
I'll put the list of the books below, all of them are in below average condition and all are in English.

The Crab with the Golden Claws (1970, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Calculus Affair (1970, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Castafiore Emerald (1970, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Cigars of the Pharaoh (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium.)
The Secret of 'The Unicorn' (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Red Rackham's Treasure (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Seven Crystal Balls (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Prisoners of the Sun (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Explorers on the Moon (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Flight 714 (1971, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Red Sea Sharks (1972, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium.)
The Black Island (1972, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Shooting Star (1972, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Land of Black Gold (1972, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Tintin in Tibet (1972, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Destination Moon (1974, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Tintin and The Lake of Sharks (1975, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
The Broken Ear (1976, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Tintin and The Picaros (1976, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)
Tintin in America (1978, printed by Casterman, S.A., Tournai, Belgium)

I'm a complete newby about these comics; can anyone tell me the +/- price I would most likely get for these?

It's not a list which contains anything unusual or rare, I'm afraid, so it's not going to be worth that much, especially if the books are in poor condition (which is what I take it to mean when you say "below average"). Buyers have plenty of choice on the second-hand market, and tend to prefer clean, complete copies.

I'd suggest a rough figure of perhaps £2-£3 a copy, but it would be a question of finding a buyer who wants them. You might get more, you might get less, but I'd doubt you will get a lot for them.

So I'll just keep them for now, just for the sake of it :D
Thanks!
