First use Google, that can help quite a bit. Even if you don't have a catalog or price guide that's a good start. Portfolio52 and searching here at UC or 52+Joker sitecan also find options for you. WOPC and other sites can also help.

For the Santa ones apparently they are a Merz67 deck, see here - http://www.playingcardforum.com/index.php?topic=3888.0

What a deck is worth is pretty much up to what people are currently paying. The sold search on ebay is a great way for most decks other than super rare.

I'll let you or others research the other ones.

Here`s a good site for identifying vintage Bicycle back designs with information about the backs, Ace of spades, Jokers etc. (Just click on the number)
