There are no perfect solutions but iIts worth taking a look at the art market. Below are two links that might help. ...

Re: Images by Publisher Salmon

Slightly off topic & not directed at any of the above responses. There will be many notable exceptions but Its surprising that study groups and clubs fail to establish web sites for members to display and document their collections.

Re: Best site to collect?

eBay and Delcampe remain the leaders as far as I can see for worldwide and reliable (in terms of there always being something of interest there) availability to buyers. In the USA there are quite a few other sites though most seem to be focused on their domestic market.

Never heard of ricardo.
