I have some old maps. Would anyone be interested in these, and what are they worth?
Our members are mostly interested in older road maps, generally those issued prior to the 1960s by oil companies (domestic and foreign), state (or provincial) highway departments, or almost anything from the 1930s or before, as well as road atlases. Most members are not interested in large wall maps, USGS topographic maps, globes, or general atlases, however, some members may be.
As a non-profit agency, we are unable to provide appraisals. However condition and age are major factors in determining value. There is essentially no resale value to recent AAA maps and National Geographic maps, which exist in enormous quantities. Although tourist maps and brochures are collectible, we are not the best market for these.
If you allow, we can pass your note and contact information to our members. It is even possible that a member lives or is visiting near you. Optionally, you can join our mailing list, not restricted to members [https://roadmaps.org/mailing-list/], and offer them for sale yourself. Other options include eBay or similar online auction groups.
If you are a collector of maps and would like to join our club, go to roadmaps.org to see what we offer.
If you would like to donate your maps to our club, your postage plus the valuation of the maps is tax deductible, we will provide a receipt. As a non-profit, we are not able to reimburse postage. To decrease your postage costs, if you give us an idea of what you have, or photos of map covers, we can better advise you on how to proceed.
You can mail us maps to:
PO Box 478
Rowlett, TX 75030-0478
Common map donations are auctioned or sold on a dollar table at our annual meeting to help defray our operating expenses such as web hosting and publication of our newsletter. Thank you for thinking of us!
