First in a series of many great circus posters currently on display at the Shelburne Museum outside of Burlington VT. This is an amazing collection of circus posters, including many Barnum and Bailey posters I'd never seen before. Part of my summer 2010 east coast antiques tour.

    How much are these posters worth?

    I am an avid collector of original Circus and Magic posters, some from Strobridge which was the "Tiffany" of lithographers. They were the very best! This is a nice poster. I would be happy to lend my expertise on your posters David, just let me know what questions you have.

    This particular "Steel Railroad" poster is from 1938 and should be a 1-sheet measuring approximately 28" x 41" and an approximate value would be $300-$600 in today's market.

    Now the other poster, "Amusement Institution", is in deed a Strobridge Litho. poster from the late 19th century, dating back to 1899 to be exact. This particular poster is worth some cash, in today's market it is valued at around $1,500. U.S. Dollars. It is a FINE example of a Strobridge lithograph!

    Both Great posters!
