Found a package my dad bought from an auction back in the day. Alot of paper advertising from mid 50s and older. Looking for help on values. Thanks

I would think the value would be somewhat minimal, as most items don't have great graphics or are from a company that I would consider extremely "collectible". I think the exception to that would be the piece with the baseball player if it is from an actual player endorsement? Baseball collectors like that sort of advertising.

I agree the only one with possibly more value would be the Babe Ruth AC poster......no idea of the value though.

I think that some may be surprised by the value of these posters and ad pieces. They have some appealing graphics to me. I agree that the baseball poster may be the most collectible. Is that Mickey Mantle? All would display nicely in a frame or behind glass in a mockup window on a wall.

I recommend putting them on eBay as they would be easy to ship, rolled in a tube or packed in a reinforced flat. Group 2 or 3 from the same brand together. Post a link to each auction back here on Oldgas.com

I get more visitor comments about this framed paper poster than I get about some of my better porcelain signs.

Thanks guys the Babe Ruth one I found on a site but wouldnt show what it sold for unless I bought a membership. This is only part of it but I havent seen paper this crisp. The Zerone duck has has been my biggest challenge but going to pick up poster tubes and we shall see. This was only part of if and all of it came from one shop in boulder CO

I found the Babe Ruth AC piece that sold for $350 in 2004 and another brought $625 in 2014. Keep in mind these appear to be auction house results and may not fetch these prices in a retail setting but great stuff regardless!

I hope I'm wrong! I think this is the reason some items people ask for values on go unanswered. Many of us, unless its a specific area of interest, have no clue how to price or value items.
