I have somewhat of a collection of old brochures, business cards, and novelty give-a-ways from magicians. There is stuff from known, (at least to me), and unknown people like Burling Hull, Dell O'Dell, Fatique Sanders, Harry Albacker, and a lot more. I'm trying to clean out as much as I can, and don't know what to do with them. I do not want to catalog them. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

EBay has a specific category for exactly this stuff:

Collectibles > Fantasy, Mythical & Magic > Magic > Magician Memorabilia, Ephemera

You can list them singly or sell them in lots.

You could donate them to the American Museum of Magic, in Marshall, Michigan.

Thanks for all of the suggestions. It gives me several viable options.
When Harry Albacker died, his props were left to Carnegie Mellon University, where they're on public display. This might be another alternative.

Do not give them to CMU unless they have a Pittsburgh connection and even then. Eventually some one will toss them.
