Here we go again on the slippery slopes of "Intellectual Property!" I would 
say yes, because you own them and you're trying to sell them. Art, Laurie, 
Bill Gates and Michael Getty would probably say "No!" As long as you're not 
selling multiple prints you've done yourself (which would be a definite 
no-no), it would be impractical for the photographer or his/her heirs to sue 
you. You might even learn their identity. :-)
