  1. If that is the “real value”, then values have surely dropped. I sold several in the $150 range in the early 2000s. I haven’t sold or traded any in recent years.

  2. Looks like about a dozen have sold in the last 18 months or so according to a pricing service I subscribe to. From $79 to $162, about half of them closed over $100. Four of them were over $125.

    I think prices have taken a hit in general since 2007-2008 for a variety of reasons including the overall economy.

  3. My thoughts on prices.
    1) OLD guys (or wives) selling off their stuff
    2) younger guys seem to avoid items over $20 (and the fewer that really collect these days)
