Sullivan piece is c. 1890's. Mat itself looks to be in solid condition but it looks like the text on the mat is very faded, which is somewhat important to the piece. It's one of the more fairly common poses of Sullivan.

I'd guess it's on the lower end of prices as far as Sullivan cabinets are concerned. Probably in the $100-200 range in an auction setting, though Adam can probably chime in and give you more exact info.

The Floyd Johnson is a slightly trimmed down National Studios photo out of New York City. Mount appears to be custom made by a collector along the way as the photo was not originally intended for mounting.

Floyd Johnson appeared to fight in the New York area in the 1922-24 period, so it would date to that general period.

Value anywhere from 20-50 bucks, depending on interest and format you used to sell.

Want to thank Dave for his input. The Johnson sold immediately for $40. Always fun to learn from the experts. I'm a hockey guy but always willing to learn about other sports memorabilia. TY Dave and to Dave's Resale for pointing these gems out to me.
