Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

I researched your autographs before I decided to answer your question.

That research indicated that your set of autographs would have an estimated retail value of $900-1000 depending on sale location.

As far your photographs go, unless they are autographed, they would have a retail value of $25 each.

In general, a private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 10% more than retail values.

I hope I have helped you.
