Hi just wondering if anyone knows how I can get information as to how much something like a old film reel of the boxing match between James Braddock vs. Max Baer. It's still in it's original canisiter. Never been viewed. Not even sure if it's even worth anything but I have a original film reel that was bought from my grandfather.

What ever you do, don't sell it. If anything take it to antiques road show and have it examined there, but I'm sure it's worth some $$$.

Thank guys, for all your advices, however, I'm a female. :cheeky4:

I haven't sold it yet. I am going to take Bill's suggestion. As soon as I have a chance I'll have the reel authenticated and priced. I love to get an idea how much it would go for. Any guesses?:)

Excellent Idea. A professional appraiser would also be able to give you a good idea as to the fair market value of this reel. Certainly a little more popular now after the release of the Cinderella Man movie, so if your interested in selling it, do it while the market is hot for it.

Sorry, for sounding like an idiot about this stuff but I've tried researching places to go to but I haven't found any places to go to. Truthfully, I have no idea where to start. They do appraisals for other things like vases, coins, furniture, paintings, but I haven't found anything for vintage reels.

Yes, New York City, why? Can you suggest a place for me to go to?:)

Well every June the boxing hall of fame there has induction week. One day each year the have an all boxing memorabilia show there. People sell old cards, autographs & all kinds of classic boxing stuff.

You could either rent a table & try & sell it. Or maybe just go & start talkin to people. There is so many tables/collectors. I went last year & it was great.
