Comic-Con 2019 Badge Auction

For the first time in years Comic-Con will make available cancelled and returned badges to the general public. This year, we’ve decided to auction these returned badges to help raise funds for the Comic-Con Museum, to be located in San Diego’s Balboa Park.

The first set of badge auctions has just been posted on the eBay account “sdcomic-con,” and further badges will be released in batches until July 12.

Badges will be sold to the highest bidder, and all proceeds from this fundraiser will directly support the development of the forthcoming Comic-Con Museum, which aims to bring the magic of Comic-Con to fans all year-round.

The winner of each auction will receive two 4-day badges for Comic-Con 2019 and will be eligible to participate in Comic-Con 2020 Returning Registration. These badges are for THURSDAY–SUNDAY only and do not include Preview Night, Wednesday, July 17. 

The winner of the auction can register the passes to any two people, but those people must have a valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID. The winner is not required to be one of the recipients of the tickets won in this auction. The auction is for two badges only, and no additional badges will be provided for any reason.

The eBay account, “sdcomic-con,” is the only authorized seller of San Diego Comic-Con badges. All other eBay auctions are not associated with San Diego Comic-Con or the Museum and are not valid.
