Default 1952 Topps Gray Backs

I originally posted this in the B/S/T forum...but I thought maybe I would get some eyes on my post in here that maybe don't visit the B/S/T forum. I will be looking to sell at some point but right now am in the gathering info....gathering potential interest/buyers...figuring out possible value phase. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here is the original post from a day ago in the B/S/T forum:

"1st post, looks like a great group. I found this group because I lucked into acquiring two 1952 Topps Gray Backs(Roy Smalley and Bob Rush) and wanted more info. I felt they were in really good condition so sent off to PSA(my first ever PSA submissions) and they came back with a 4(Rush) and a 4.5(Smalley-only 4.5 out there with only three 5's better). Anyway...I have never sold a card let alone a card like these two. I would like to eventually sell and I hear there are some super gray collector's out there but I don't even know where to start. The more info I can get about these cards, the collector's of these cards that are out there, potential value of these cards, etc that would be great. If anyone in here can give me some leads to collectors or anyone potentially interested in buying these(or someone with more info on how to best find buyers) that would be great. I am probably looking to avoid ebay if at all possible as I have never sold on ebay and assume that my lack of feedback would hurt any potential interest. I have reached out to a few card shops and facebook groups in the last day or so in hopes of drumming up more info/interest. Thank in advance for any feedback."

Since you're asking for advice, the best I can give is send them to an auctionhouse like REA or Heritage. They will take a cut (the 20% buyers premium), but the exposure will be worth it. And they'll handle the legwork of receiving the payment, and packing and shipping the item off to the winner.
Current Want to Buy/Trade for List:
1930s Phoebe Phelps Caramel Pennant of Georgia Tech
1910 Painted handkerchief of GA Tech pennant girl by F. Earl Christy sold by Atlanta Toy Museum on eBay circa 2000.
