ACHOF Resources – Album Art Buying and Selling Resources Page

Looking to buy or sell an album art print, or have it appraised for insurance purposes?

While we know the market well, we do not have an authorized or bonded appraiser on staff and so we cannot provide folks who are looking to buy or sell items with services to enable them to get the most “bang for the buck” from the purchase and/or sale of these goods.

Since our main goal here at the ACHOF is to educate and inform, it’s important for us to let you know that there are, however, a number of companies here in the U.S. and abroad that we’re aware of that are fully-equipped to help you if you’re looking to add to or sell items from your collection. All of these companies have been in business a long time and have both the staff and reputation to be able to help people realize the most from the purchase or sale of their art and memorabilia. You can visit the Websites for these companies and find information on them about how they can first help you determine the availability of the items you’d like (or the value of your collectibles) and then provide you with a method to buy or sell them, either via direct sale or auction. Also included in the list are the names of appraisers who specialize in rock music art and memorabilia, so if you’re looking to first understand the value of your collection before making a decision whether or not to sell – or if you’re needing appraisals for insurance purposes – these firms can be of great help to you as well.

While we have done business with many of these firms (purchases for our own personal collections), we are in no way endorsing any of these firms, so feel free to contact any/all of them in your quest to sell your items.  Regarding auction companies – I’ve listed a number of independent auction houses that have specialties dedicated to rock-related memorabilia. In addition to these firms, most of the large international auction houses – Christie’s, Sotheby’s and Bonham’s & Butterfield’s in the U.S. (and U.K.) and also Cooper-Owen in the U.K. – have entertainment memorabilia divisions and may also be able to help you locate items you’d like to add to your collection, as well as with appraisals and aid in selling your collectibles.

Best of luck to you in your efforts to expand or manage your collection. Of course, if you want to take some of your proceeds from your sales and bring them back to one of the galleries we have listed on this site to buy something new, we’re sure that they’d be more than happy to help you in that effort as well!

One final note – If you’re looking for a gift for a fan of album covers/album cover art, please reference the several articles we’ve published since 2013 that provide you with some ideas, suggestions and a list of places to find things.

While it’s been mentioned previously, I did want to note one last time – please understand that the businesses listed below are included for informational purposes only and their inclusion does not constitute an endorsement of them or the products they sell. Caveat Emptor!
