wood cuts value?

I have looked on ebay but everything on there is so different. Does anyone have any idea what the going rate or the best way to sell wooden cuts? I have between 75-100 from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. If anyone has any information they could share I would appreciate it.

I have bought them from .50 to $8.00.

I think it depends on a number of variables, with the two most important being size and what the cut is. I’d imagine the age of the cuts being important to a smaller sector of your market. The real value of something like a wood cut/printing block is whatever someone is willing to pay for it. eBay might be a good option if you want to unload them quickly. Test a few out with low starting bids and no reserves and see if you’re happy with the results. Or just put the whole lot up on eBay or here, name your price and see if there are any takers.

And make sure you take good photographs: people with ugly photos don’t sell very much.
