Are these worth anything?

I have two old french cycling magazines.
One is called Le Miroir des sports dated Lundi 31 Aout 1953 with Fausto Coppi on the cover

The second one is called But et Club dated Vendredi 1er Juillet 1949 I don't know who is on the cover but the headline reads as follows; Le Tour A Demarre!

I picked them up about 25 years ago at a french cooking store in Portland. They had a pile of old french magazines and I found these. They are pretty dog eared but I think I'll frame them as is ( not take them apart).

The photos are very cool.

Check eBay?

I bought a pile of old British magazines from 1951 about a year and a half ago. Cost me $5.00 each.

btw - let me know if you want this moved to the Vintage Value Inquiry sub-forum. They're usually more useful with bicycles, but since these aren't bikes or parts...

USAZorro,
Yes, Please move my inquiry to that other section. As you can tell I'm new here and still finding my way around. Thanks
