That's the US version.

"Fans of PBS’s ‘Antiques Roadshow‘ will want to catch the upcoming El Paso episode, just filmed yesterday in the historic Texas City. From the El Paso Times:

A book by J.R.R. Tolkien and an Andy Warhol pop art collection were among the most expensive items appraised at Saturday’s PBS “Antiques Roadshow” at the Judson F. Williams Convention Center.

“The most expensive item appraised (Saturday) was a first edition of ‘The Hobbit’ with original dust jacket and the signature of J.R.R. Tolkien,” said Judy Matthews, for the “Antiques Roadshow.” “It was appraised at between $80,000 and $100,000.” "

Hello Little
Welcome to the site.
There are a number of ways to sell your items but from your description and without any further info, I would suggest ebay is indeed your best option. You will reach millions of people and cheaply including of course Tolkien collectors.
I guess it would take you time on any site to list etc and once you get into flow it shouldnt take too long to place on ebay or what about placing them on as a job lot? There seems to be more of this recently especially and with respect for more common editions.
Hope helps , good luck with sale

Theonering.net (better known as TORN to its subscribers) is generally a fan-boy/girl operated site dedicated to jackson's films. I don't think it ever existed prior to the development of the movies. If you really want to get a sense of the people that frequent it (and perhaps you don't), have a look at the discussion forum - it is quite comical. My favorite was a fellow using the monker "Morthoron" (or something similar) who has written a piece of fan-fiction that marries The Hobbit with Monty Python. I'm not kidding - you couldn't make this stuff up.

To add; Broadway's moniker on theoneringnet is Quickbeam. There is, or was, a sub-forum called Green Books. Here's a link to a page from there; tho' it seems this page hasn't been updayed for years:

Cliff Broadway is connected with theoneringnet. There's something about him here:

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1440958/bio

Rebekah Platt appears regularly on theoneringnet too; presenting a video report on the progress of pJ's upcoming movies called 'The Hobbit in 5'.

Mr Broadway considers himself a Tolkien academic; it says so in a book produced by theoneringnet called 'The People's Guide to JRR Tolkien' (2003), which bills itself as 'the first and only book written by Tolkien fans for Tolkien fans'. Which comes as something of a surprise to an old Tolkien Society hand like myself. There was a follow-up book in 2005, which includes the interview with Flieger which Red quoted from.

Broadway was also involved with an appallingly awful fan film called 'Ringers', which IMO truly hit new lows. In any field of endeavour. Truly awful.

The books contain essays from the website, on all the usual themes to do with Tolkien's works; basically there doesn't seem to be anything here which isn't covered better in many TS publications and on other websites; but theoneringnet have set themslves up as the premier Tolkien fan site, and so they blow their own trumpet here. Mr Braun's selection of Cliff and Rebekah seems to show that he, at least, believes everything he reads on the Net.
