A vintage Rupert Annual is valuable and very collectible, but its exact value cannot be determined without a visual inspection. A Rupert Annual printed in the 1930s in good condition is valued at around $2,000, while one printed in the 1980s is valued at $100 or less.
Vintage Rupert Annuals should be taken to an antiquities appraiser to have an accurate value placed on them.

Copies that are in their original dust jackets or that have been signed are worth more than other copies.Learn More
