  1. I am interested in finding out the value of my Allen & Ginter “Song Birds of the World”
    It has a set of 10. I am looking to sell the set and would like to know what I might ask for it..
    I can send pictures if need be
    The condition of this set is good considering its age.

    1. As far as the value of your cards, that will totally depend on condition of both the fronts and backs. You can check eBay for some current sales but roughly those cards will go for $2-10 dollars each – as you can see the condition will dramatically affect value. I’m also assuming you have the regular size cards (ACC #N23) versus the large format edition.

      1. The set is in book format-tied with a twine-like string. Inside it has 10 – 6×8.5″ cards. Each card quotes a famous poet, and features 4-5 birds. The inside of both the front and back cover advertise Allen & Ginter cigarettes. I’m looking to put it on ebay-just not sure what to start for a price as the book is yellowed and there is a small tear out of the back cover.
        Thanks for your help.

      2. Ah, you have the album then which is quite a bit rarer then the individual cards. I couldn’t find any recent prices but one sold a few years back for $165 and it was not in very good condition. I would suggest listing it with some good pictures and a fairly low opening price then see what happens, you can always put a reserve on the auction for the minimum you want to get for it.

        Good luck!
