Hello everyone! It's been quite a while since I've been here . . . .

I normally deal with artwork, rather than the actual game products, but I just got a shrinkwrapped copy of the orange B3 as a commission from an ex-TSR staffer that I helped out. It's in perfect condition, but the shrink-wrap has, well, shrunk, and warped the module. I'm sure that significantly impacts the value, but I'd appreciate any feedback on what a reasonable selling price would actually be.

Mine looks the same way.  I don't think the value is reduced if at all.  It's a SW Orange B3!  :-)

oB3s seem to be particularly prone for some reason (rescued from a humid dumpster truck? *jk*), but some managed to escape the warping: one dead-flat SW copy going spare here, anyhow... Attempting to flatten the module can have "interesting" consequences in terms of damage to module and/or shrink from what I've seen in previous cases.

As to value, I'm not sure whether the relatively recent c. $3k shrink copy made it onto the valuation board's list or how that computation was made when oB3s are more frequently encountered in shrink. If anything, there should be a waiting list for people seeking unshrinked copies. :)

Many thanks for the responses! That's very helpful - I guess I should just post it here in the FS section, then, and see what happens.

why is that valuable shrink wrapped module sitting on that steel brush or pin cushion or whatever that is? :o  :lol:

:D Just set it down quickly on top of the sheepdog's crate to snap the pic. Will get nicer, non-steel brush photos to post for sale!
