Rivendell Readers Value?

I think this is the best spot to try to get a value for some Rivendell Readers that were donated to our all-volunteer charity. We will give away well over 2200 bikes this year. We'll try to sell the Readers to help with our expenses. The Readers are in pretty good condition. We have numbers 3, 6 to 19, two copies of number 21 and numbers 22-28. If there's a better forum, please let me know. Thanks for your help in advance,

Fred

Hmmm...without a precedent, I guess their worth is what one will pay for them.

I used to like reading through them; there were always a couple good stories and of course the illustrations were tops.

Are these authored by Grant Petersen? If so, priceless.

Yes, Grant did author these. I see some now and then on eBay, so that's where these are headed. Like everything else, they are worth exactly what someone is willing to pay. Thanks for reading and for your comments. We're hoping for auction fever
