I was gifted around 200 Comics from the 1980 and up.

I have no idea on the value as google gives me values from $1.00 to $18,000 for some of the comics.

Anyone know what I can do to get these sorted out for price?

Here is the List

Most of them are Spiderman Comics

there are a couple I think might be worth a buck or two (or more) in value.

Most are in great condition.

1st printing of 1st issues + variant covers are usually worth money, depending on condition. I'll go through your list and see if anything stands out.

The Amazing Spiderman - Skating on thin Ice! #1 - I see this one going for $8.

The Marvel Secret Wars ones might be worth something. I've seen issue #1 going anywhere from $8-$26.

I'm guessing that a lot of them are worth $1-2. The 80's ones might be worth a bit more. Hard to be sure without seeing the condition. If they have curled corners it might be tough to get rid of them. They should be stored in plastics with cardboard backers. Comic books are like sports cards. Pre-70's are worth money because they printed less of them. 80's and 90's stuff was mass produced so they aren't rare.

most based on what i read about grading are up there in condition 7+ maybe 8+ some 9+ but really i have no idea.

I seen one or two of them with high values if graded, but that isn't cheap from what i read.

From the picture you posted, I don't think any of them look anywhere near 7-9 grading.

Take a few good closeup pictures of what you think is your single BEST condition comic, and post them.

A good way to ballpark a value is to look up some of the titles and see if the same is selling on eBay for instance. The funny thing about comics is they are really only worth whatever someone is willing to pay rather than a market value.
I've done that with several of my comics and for a couple I deeply regretted selling when I did for the amount I got.
Graded comics are absolutely the best way to ensure a comics quality but their standard for grades are So strict. I have 3 graded books all different but to look at them I can't figure out what the difference in quality is. A staple slightly crooked or something?

Oops.....forgot to include. If you want to preserve the value of those comics you should get them boarded and bagged. The fancy cardboard backing not only keeps the books stiff and straight but also keeps the pages from turning yellow by absorbing nasty acids
