Default Jack Ruby Shooting Oswald Newspaper Question

So I recently came across two newspapers that were the breaking news editions of Ruby shooting Oswald. They're complete and in nice condition considering their age. One is Dallas Morning News and the other is the Herald. My question is, what are the values on something like this? I'm a huge history buff and I've always been fascinated by the JFK assassination, but the asking price of $50 apiece just sounds kind of high. Of course, I have no knowledge of vintage papers. Any help is appreciated.

Thank you for the help! Stopped by today and the Dallas Morning News was gone but the Herald was in great condition so I picked it up for fifty even.

I've got a tote full of papers, including both of those. Mine aren't in that kind of condition, but still in fair shape.

I've been wondering how to sell them for several years and the shipping conundrum has been the holdup.

How would you ship those?

maybe get a protective folder and hope it all fits in a flat rate box?
my search wasn't that helpful, but i did find a dealer

maybe you could act as a prospective buyer and ask about how papers are packed and shipped.

The only news papers I've saved are The Colts winning the Superbowl and Clinton being Impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice (Cause it happened on my birthday, what a gift eh?!)

Can't see them ever worth anything though. Might use them to start a fire when our society collapses, then you're gonna want them!!
