My name is Jon Warren. I am the founder of the company. I am a certified appraiser and member of the International Society of Appraisers. I am the author of numerous price guide books and have provided many high-level appraisals over the years. Comic Book collectors may remember my work for The Overstreet Price Guide or my Guide to Comic Book Values published by Wizard Press. I was Senior Price Guide Editor at Overstreet Publications and Wizard Press (but not at the same time). Movie Poster collectors may be familiar with my series of Movie Poster price guides, first published in 1985 and now online at iGuide.net. I have produced dozens and dozens of price guides both in print and online, all with the same mission: to help people learn the true value of their antiques and collectibles. I am the official appraiser for the estate of actor John Wayne. I am an IRS Expert Witness called to authenticate and validate appraisals for charitable donations purposes. I mention these things not to brag, but hopefully to establish my credentials.

I have resided in Chattanooga since 1970, having graduated high school and college locally. The company is operated by the Warren family, who has resided at the same address in Chattanooga for more than 30 years. We are not a fly-by-night operation, we have our roots firmly settled in our community. This is important because when dealing through the mail you want to KNOW you are not dealing with some kid in his parent's basement. You should align yourself in any business venture with a partner who has a solid reputation. You should avoid a firm who has just sprung up recently.
