Stamps (Philately)/Postal Commemorative Society albums


My late husband subscribed to Postal Commemorative Society First-Day Covers from approximately 1988 to his death in 2012.  He stored the materials in large looseleaf albums (each item in a page protector).  The albums now fill a good-sized book case.  I am interested in shifting them from my house to somewhere they might be appreciated.  How might I do this, and if the answer is "on line," how should I estimate what they might be worth?


Please keep in mind that the Postal Commemorative Society is a company that specializes in arranging fairly common philatelic items into attractive packaging.  The collection absolutely has value, but very likely a fraction of the original cost.

You would likely find a buyer on the online auction site  On ebay, search the words "Postal Commemorative Society" to see how other sellers are showing and pricing similar items.  I recommend various digital photos of the albums in the bookcase plus a few sample pages, and tell the story of how the collection was assembled.  Take care to determine how you would ship the collection to the buyer - number of boxes, sizes and weights - because you could very well lose money in the transaction by underestimating the shipping cost.

Good luck!
