I've never heard of Scroogie before and at 38, the biggest thing I know about Tug McGraw is that he illegitimately fathered Tim McGraw the country singer (who wrote about him in "Live Like You Were Dying"). But I'll throw in some ideas:
1) Panels that depict teams or players should be sold individually or in small lots focusing on those teams/players. May not be applicable if none of the strips ever mentioned MLB.
2) Don't flood the market. Release slowly over years. Max lot size of 10.
3) Heritage or REA or Hake's Americana?
4) Trial balloon on eBay might be useful, but what if the first 5 you try to sell that way flop? Then selling at an auctionhouse will be even worse. If first option to get them is through auctionhouse and no realized eBay sales, flippers might battle for them.
5) Any auto'd by Tug? Those might sell at a premium.

Those are good suggestions......Thanks for the assist.

I looked up Tug Mcgraw in Wikipedia and it mentions Scroogie, and indicates that actual teams and players were used in the strips, so the suggestion by Swarmee about grouping in that fashion seems like a good option.
