Would a letter signed by Adolph Zukor be worth anything?

It's in the envelope with the Paramount Pictures address and postmark etc..it was sent right before he passed away. If not I am going to toss it. lol Cleaning Mom's house out and it was a letter to Dad. He wrote and told Mr.Zukor how much he enjoyed the studio tour in WWII..just wondering. I am sorting through so much it's crazy. Just thought I'd ask. Hope this is ok to post here? thanks! Tricia

No doubt it has some value, depending on where and how it is sold. You can search on the internet for appraisers. Type in something like letter appraiser, or movie memorabilia appraiser. Or autograph appraiser. Write down the story of the letter as well, with whatever documentation you have to go along with it. As anyone knows who watches the Antiques Roadshow, that adds value.

Howdy Tricia,

 

Check out this website for other letters and stuff related to Zukor and prices asked:

The site asks you to click for more documents signed by Zukor...

 

The website is for "History For Sale: The Autograph and Manuscript Leader."

 

Here's another letter for sale on Ebay:

Condition, personal details, etc., all make a difference...

 

Here's another Zukor signed letter with estimated value:

It also depends on whether or not he really signed it, or had his secretary sign it. There was plenty of that going around. If the signature is authentic, then your best bet would be to get it appraised by an authority in that type of memorabilia. If you intent to sell it, then hit up collectors of that sort of thing.
