Start by finding your local comic book shop, ask the owner if he sells or has access to older Superman books. I'm not sure, specifically, what you are looking for, but you are delving into Silver Age stuff, which will cost you a pretty penny if you are looking for high grade books. Pick up a price guide so you can get an idea on what you will be spending, i recommend either Wizard Magazine or the newest edition of the Overstreet Price Guide. Be SPECIFIC in what you want and in what condition you want it in. A word of advice, if you are looking for these books just for the pleasure of reading them, my suggestion would be to look at some collected trade paperbacks of the older stuff, it won't cost you nearly as much as the originals, and it looks good on the bookshelf. But if you are into the books as a personal investment, then by all means, be specific on what you want and shop around. Your local comic shop, though, is a great place to start. Hope this helps (this advice coming from a former comic book shop owner, myself). Any more questions feel free to email me so as not to take up anymore bandwith on the board on an off topic issue.

: I was looking to buy some old Superman comics from the 1960's. So, I have a few questions, having never purchased old comic books before. 1) How much should these be if I want them in decent condition and 2) Where do you all suggest I go to get these? Thanks a lot.
