Just an idea but...

If you could get them reproduced at a reasonable price, there might be some demand for them to be used as wall hangings.

My boss was into WWII aircraft and I got him some reproduction prints of a few fighters that he had framed and hung up. Pretty neat look.

Even if they were just large photocopies from Kinkos, there may be some interest in them.

Of course, the originals would be valuable for that purpose too, but likely for more $$.

I agree with Crisser - I would love to even have a reproduction to hang on the wall. Must be so neat to study.
