Thanks for the post.
Even in empty condition, these bottles are listed on Ebay at prices from under $10 to nearly $75--but that doesn't mean they sell for that, since lots of Ebay listings don't result in sales. If full, they sell for more, although I don't think it's because anyone thinks the wine is worth much, more to do with the "mint" condition and the idea another collector will pay more if it is still as-new.
I only found a few recent sales for these items. One was a pair of Dean and Frank bottles in full condition, sold for about $75. Frank alone, full condition, went for $30. (Dino worth more than Frank?) I Love Lucy comes in two versions and a non-etched sold for $42 empty.
Not enough to put the kids through college. I also saw some of these wines on Wine Searcher, where retailers were asking a lot more for full bottles, but there were only a couple bottles out there--I suspect they keep them around for the odd collector of non-wine items who wanders through. I don't think the selling point is the wine inside.
My guess is that you will have much more success selling these to fans of the performers than wine drinkers--after all, wine drinkers like to buy the wine inside the bottle.
Good luck, I hope these find a nice home.
