I hate to have to ask this, but how much do you think these should sell for?

I don't want to part with them. I never would if money wasn’t so tight. Still can’t find a job and haven't quite made rent yet this month yet.

Believe me, I don't want to be "that guy" who gets sketches at cons and then sells them. If it weren't absolutely necessary I never would. These are two of my favorite sketches, three of my favorite characters drawn by two of my favorite artists. They’ve been framed on my wall for years. I'm still hoping that I'll get a job soon and won’t have to sell either one. But, that job would have to show up very soon.

Basically, just testing the waters, I guess. If I'm forced to sell these I'd like to get as much as I can. Just curious what you think.

"That guy" is someone who gets a sketch over a weekend, and then sells it before the next weekend. You've had these for years, have need of the money now, other people are big fans of the creators who drew them and HAVE money, I think it's perfectly alright to sell them. If it was "I need the money to upgrade my WOW character to the next level", then you'd be getting a different answer.
Really, if you want to get the MOST for them, auctioning them on eBay is about the only way to go. If you want to keep things "in the family", you can offer them to your followers on LJ and Twitter directly, and see if you get any bites. I'd estimage each would sell somewhere between $50 and $100. There has been someone on eBay trying to sell McCracken published PPG pages for years from $150-$450, and hasn't sold them yet. Lauren has gotten higher bids on her art, but only for charity, and only on her Pony art. Good luck with what you decide to do.
