The Authentic Experience
I'm a total newbie to this forum. I'm coming to you experts to ask what the value might be of a signed & personalized menu by Jack Dempsey. My Mom just recently passed away, and she kept the menu he autographed for her when she & Dad were eating at his restaurant on their honeymoon in 1941. Also what would be my best method of selling this item for the estate? She also had "Tony Martin" on an envelope scrap, and someone else's I have no clue about. Looks like Noe(with two dots over the e)tirvand?!?!?!?! I'd appreciate any suggestion or direction.
Gallery of History is one of the higher priced retailers, who frame up their material quite elaborately. It's not unusual for them to be much higher than you could get yourself.
I checked RRAuction.com and their prices check out with Travis's. Their minimum bid is $100 on autographs and they've have a lot of Dempseys at that price to $150. These were mostly signed photos.
TRAVIS!!! You Rock! And you certainly do know your stuff. Thank you so much for all the interesting facts and info. The Theismann letter he wrote to a classmate is pre Heisman Trophy (the year before I guess). Where should I "go" to research or sell that?
