Anyone ever hear of a price guide option for the ROLE AIDS 'modules'? How about Judge's Guild items?  Any potential value? Laid off, and I am selling EVERYTHING!!! Back to 70s...Appreciate any info,    TX

For Judges Guild values, you should look at the JG section here:

http://www.acaeum.com/jg/IndexbyTitle.html

You aren't going to find a better JG site.

For Role aids, the only ones that are worth any kind of money are the initial tournament modules that come in a folder with a square cutout window: nanorien stones, beastmaker mountain, Fez I Valley of Trees, Blasted Lands, and Kobold Hall.  The rest of the items were mass produced and Mayfair had stock for years and years.  Not so long ago they had a blow out sale on these for a couple bucks a book.

In general, the roleaids books are worth probably $5-$8 and the boxed sets are maybe worth a bit more.

JG info including values (thought I don't know how current they are) appears @ http://www.acaeum.com/jg/

Role Aids isn't tallied on the site; most titles aren't worth much, although some of the earlier (regular format) modules like Lichlords or Tower of Magicks and such go for up to $20-ish or so.  First printings of the earlier books like Dwarves, Elves, Witches, etc. usually sell for a few more dollars than later printings, but I don't know that they increase the value much.  

The five folder modules were all numbered limited editions, and sell for widely ranging prices (based on presence/condition/color of folder, inclusion of ad/sell sheets, etc.), anywhere from $20 to $200, with Blasted Land seemingly the most expensive of the five (standard color folder versions).  Pics @ Ian's site @ http://www.afterglow2.com/Product/Mayfair.htm

Only Blasted Land and Kobold Hall were numbered.

You can still find the page that lists them for sale but they haven't been available for a couple years now.  I called Mayfair almost two years ago to grab another couple sets but they had sold out of them.
