This is your answer, please rate this after reading the answer. You do so clicking one of the top stars or smiley faces ( on phones possibly )!

The Prints are selling in the UK, on sites like Ebay UK, for an average of 100.00-150 GBP, if you wanted to sell them in lots, I would list them for sell in lots of 10, and list them for an average of the 100. each. So it would be 1000 GBP for 10. If you wanted to you could list all of them for one price, just decide what the amount is you would take for all of them, and put them on auction with a starting bid of so much and a reserve of what you would let them go for. An Art Gallery very likely might bid on the whole lot.
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained.
.
You can also sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.

Rating of the answer is for my professionalism in my communications with you.

It is not based on the value of an item, which appraisers have no control over, or any site issues ( technical or otherwise) that may occur while using the site.

As appraisers we do not work for the Just Answer Site. After being verified we are allowed to come to the site to answer customer's questions

The only way we are compensated for our time, is by the rating you give. Clicking one of the stars or smiley faces is very much appreciated. If you find you have a problem being able to rate me, please let me know.

It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you would like to ask me about, just start a new question addressed to "Glenda" it would be my pleasure to help you.
