    Send a letter to Christies or Sotheby's for top dollar. Include photos, they will contact you.

    These are the two TOP auction houses in the country so you can't go wrong with them.

    eBay it with a reserve that is out of this world and see what happens.

    it needs to be authenticated by someone first, it won't really go for crap without that.

    PM jiminycricket about this. He's in the auction business, and probably knows more about this kind of thing than anybody else here.

    Probably so at a real auction, but you may be surprised what people on eBay will bid on and how much they will spend. For the relatively small listing price (even with a high reserve) you can at least get some attention from actual collectors who no doubt are watching. After all, the "Virgin Mary" on damn near anything sells well.:haha:
