    Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees. These are AWESOME pictures. Will they ever have the volume of RAY"S ROOM or the sophistication of EARLYCOKE'S museum...no, but they are fabulous in their own right.

    If I had them, I would put them on EBAY and start the bidding at $100.00. I would advertise it as "COKE SPONSORS (w)GAY RADIO"

    I agree with savoy, you might be surprised at the value these may have. Some people can't see value without a price book.

    I agree. These photos are more one of a kind than anything Ray has.

    To A REAL coke collector these pictures would worth more then you think. A price guide tells you what is out there to buy. A lot of the prices are over inflated to keep you into collecting what they sell. If the prices stayed the same people would stop collecting. These are one of a kind items better then any signs you can buy from that area. It shows cardboard signs that who knows how many was made. Now how many do you think was saved. You have the pictures you COULD if you wanted to have a negative made of them. Have them duplicated sell them to collectors that wants to make a bar and place them under glass. Make sure in small print on the bottom you place you as the owner so no one else can do the same. I know a person in Myrtle Beach that bought some signed pictures of country music singers from the Beach Wagon Club when they closed and he is doing the same thing. He is getting $35 to $50 each and they are sold as copies. You must advertise them as copies to be legal. Just a thought.

    great ideas. Think i will run down to my local walmar and make a few copies

    They could fetch $100. There are pieces that have been estimated by MAJOR AUCTION HOUSES at $800 and sold for over $1,000,000, so there is a chance it will sell for a few hundred.

    hang in there Ray. for your information (so you can say "I TOLD YOU SO"). I put a lot of 10 of these on ebay. #280712436117 last week. Think you are right on about the value.

    First, I am not gettin' on any one. I think most of us are comfortable with your Coke knowledge. I do disagre with your assessment of these photos. The sale of the photos proves two things. One, Chip1714 didn't do his homework BEFORE the sale, and two, there is one really happy ebay customer out there.

    By way of example...I bought a picture at Goodwill for $30. I sold it on ebay for $1500.00 in three days. AFTER the sale I learned I should have asked $6500.00.

    Remember, I said I would have asked $100...not started it at 5.99. If I had known they were on ebay I would have bid 5 times what you got and I don't even collect Coke!

    Ray, I assume that when you say "original" coke pictures you mean ones authorized by Coke? Taken by a photographer hired by Coke.

    I do a lot of eBay selling and I would recommend using the full 55 characters.
  12. nascaronmain.com, 3 years ago
    A item will sell for as much as you can find someone to pay you and if you are willing to sale it at that price.

    At the end of the day...they were GREAT pictures ! Thanks for sharing.
  14. chip1714, 3 years ago
