Unfortunately, like Franklin Mint's productions in other areas, these were artificial "collector's items", marketed to non-collectors. If you click on the "sold listings" button for the album on US eBay, you should get an idea of what it would actually fetch. I found one on UK eBay that had sold for 15.

Welcome.
While the Franklin Mint covers might not have much market value they probably represent value as a family heirloom. They are also a potential introduction to a great hobby if anyone in your family is interested.
