Collecting Tracts: It's cheap, easy, & definitely different!

ebay Chicks

Collecting Chick tracts is not only fun, it's pretty easy and inexpensive (depending one how expansive you want your collection to be).

If you just want the current (in print) titles, that's very cheap and easy! If you also want all the regular out-of-print titles, that's still very doable without breaking the bank. If you want all the titles including the super rare promo tracts, that will take a lot more time and money. If you want all those plus the different variations, that's giant task that you'll probably never really finish-- but you'll have a lifetime of fun pursuing it!

Most people set out to get all the different titles. The very first thing you should do is order the all-assortment pack of tracts from Chick Publications. That will give you over half of Chick's tracts for under 20 cents each. That's over 130 comic booklets for around $25... What a steal!

Next, you'll want a checklist to see what out of print titles you still need. You can print out that information for free here, or you can get a detailed checklist from the Chick Tract Club with your $15 membership. You'll want to join the club anyway, because it provides other fun items at no extra charge, including exclusive reprints of the super rare promo tracts that would otherwise cost many hundreds of dollars to acquire indivually, and you get several for free. (Your purchase also helps maintain this website.)

Equipped with a checklist, you'll know what titles to look for. You can often find the missing tracts for sale on eBay. There's a wide span of pricing, from $1 to $5 each (typical) and $10 and $15 bucks for tougher titles. Some are a lot more, but if you wait and watch, you'll usually find them cheaper with different sellers or hidden in larger lots of tracts. And keep this in mind: Sometimes Chick will reprint old, out-of-print titles, allowing you pick up previously cost prohibitive tracts for under a quarter! These tracts often have some minor changes (or variations) from the original, (so it's still cool to have the originals) but it fills those more expensive gaps in your collection at next-to-nothing cost. All it requires is patience and staying tuned to Chick news (like our Facebook newsfeed).

If you want the more pricey out-of-print original tracts, especially the handful of permanently discontinued titles, you may want to invest in the Chick tract price guide. It's $30 postage paid, but you can save that much by not overpaying on just a few tracts. Besides, that guide also contains EVERYTHING we know about Chick tracts, including information on the full color comics, Battlecry, more humorous reviews of his tracts (not found on this site) and the backstory to various conspiracy gurus who influenced the more inflamatory tracts. It's a fun read, too.

Besides eBay, you should also check out any Christian book stores you happen to encounter. If you don't see Chick tracts, ask for them. If they don't carry them, ask them too. If they claim they are controversial or divisive, remind them that they can pick and chose what titles to carry, and that vast majority of Chick tracts are standard Gospel messages that the PC police will ignore. (Even secular collectors have a vested interest in preserving freedom of speech alive. Letting a vocal minority shut down Chick Publications by blacklisting them would be detrimental to our hobby AND our Bill of Rights.)

Also, keep a look out in public places for tracts left by evangelists. Some really great titles can be found that way, even the out of print ones. You can multiply your effectiveness by asking your friends know to watch for them and pick them up for you as well.

You may want to organize your collection in large 3" wide, 3 ring binders with four pocket plastic sleeves. You can house a lot of tracts in very little space this way. (It's just another advantage to collecting Chick tracts compared to other collectibles.) You don't really need plastic sleeves, many people stash them in small piles or boxes, but they display better this way and are easier to organize laid out in such a manner.

Lastly, you should email us and ask to be place on our Chickstalker Newsletter (by using the subject heading "Chickstalker". We will send you this e-Newsletter free once or twice a year, and includes recent auction prices realized for various Chick Tracts, and any other relevant Chick tract news. It will also alert you to any special reprints of super rare tracts we do, and offer you special access to these tracts so you don't overpay any crazy after-market prices. You can cancel this free service at any time, and your email address will not be sold or traded or given to anyone else.

You can always explore our giant website for free, and laugh and learn TONS about these unique pieces of Americana. You can also "Like" the Chick Tract Fan Facebook page, to get notifications about Chick related news and hear from other collectors.
