I have a copy of ST1 I have been considering selling for about 12 months now and want to get an idea of what would constitute a fair price.

I purchased the module way back when and it has been in storage ever since.  It is therefore in what I would describe as near mint condition.  The only blemishes on the whole module are 2 slight depressions on the front cover where it has been in contact with the rings of a ring binder, otherwise the whole thing is as fresh as the day it was purchased.

:twisted: ST1?  That's not rare, but I'll give you $5 if you really don't want it.  Send it quick!  :twisted:

Seriously though, if it's NM, it will easily top $1000...probably closer to $1500.  You'll probably get some private offers from folks on here, too.  

The last one I noticed on eBay was this one:

I was just looking at this to see who won and I noticed two down from the wining bid is an eBay account name I've seen before. The name is quachduck. What's funny is their eBay rating -1  8O . Not off to very good of a start or could be a shill.

It is one of those 1k club modules. But be advised, watch ebay and make sure you are the only one available.

Also, do not list it within days of another that has sold. In fact, I'd wait around 30 days to let people get desparate.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Thanks for the info.  I've located the two recent ebay auctions for this item and now have a fairly good idea of what they are currently selling for.  If I don't manage to sell it privately I'll probably put it up on Ebay early next year, by which time maybe the Dollar will have risen to a point where it's (more) affordable for a U.S buyer.

Don't forget that there are Canadian buyers interested as well!

Maybe closer to $2k if it really is NM.

I don't think they come any nicer then that. I'd keep it if I were you; it could help with retirement in the future. But if you want/have to sell it $1,500 -- $2,000 clams is what I'm guessing. Could even go higher with the way things have been around here on the Sunday night shootouts.

If you donate it to our museum, I'll send the IRS forms for you're tax deduction provided your in the US, and not across the pond.  :twisted:

Just kidding  :D , enjoy it or best of luck with you're sale.

And don't forget these tips to maximise your return:

Holidays & Ebaying

Although I think this would fetch top price whenever you choose to list it.

Can you provide any information on how you came by it for research purposes?

ST1 survival rate??

That is a truly mint copy. I wouldn't hesitate to say it is the best one out there.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
