Leroy Neiman Signed Lithograph Appraisal

Looking for a value on this Leroy Neiman hand signed lithograph. I believ this is the only one around.
Where would be the best place to sell this item?
Thanks for your time.
Hi Fred,
Thanks for the photo. Unfortunately you did not provide the size. Nieman is very prolific and commercial. However you may wish to contact Swann Galleries in New York on 25th Street or William Jenack auctioneers, Chester, NY. telephone: 845-469-9095
Have the size ready. They will probably want to know more nformation. My guess is that it is in the $100 to $200 range.
Good luck.
