Aye, watching Antiques Road Show, as you do, and look what turns up. Tolkien also got another mention later on. First thing I thought was bet someone will have this up on TolkienGuide tonight!. And, Wellinghall promptly provides. With their especial interest in Baynes, I do hope Wayne & Christina can get a look at the clip (for all it's worth). The estimate sounded reasonable enough.

The Nielson BookScan data given in "The Decade Round-Up 2000-2009" (in The Bookseller) differs slightly.

Tolkien is 23rd overall by volume (4.9m)
10th overall by value (£47m)
& the only dead author in this (value) top ten list.

Aye, very funny indeed.

You could make this a yearly thing. Trotter's The Year's Work in Tolkien eBay Studies...
