They used to go for quite a bit more, but there was a ton of stock, so most people that wanted them already have them.  The whole package can be purchased in SW at Noble Knight Games for $40:

Maze of Zayene #1-4, Garden of the Plantmaster & City of Brass Promo Flyer (1st Printings)

That's actually a pretty good price.  Kit also includes the promotional flyer for the City of Brass module.

1-2 years ago, NKG was selling them in single auctions starting at $20 (IIRC), and selling most for around $26, in SW....
These were constant listings, back to back to back.....
Maybe now the stock is not so deep so they may not be listing them like that anymore.

Worth mentioning that this occurred for a several year span.  He must have sold several hundred of these sets.

They're worth keeping, opening and playing, for their price point ($40 max the set). I've sold a half dozen over the years, and they always seem to go for the $40 mark, although GotP can fetch $20 on it's own. Garden of the Plantmaster is an original level from Castle Greyhawk. It's well written and a good scenario to play through with a good DM. The others seem a little dry. The flyers are a curio, but almost entirely worthless in the marketplace.

My favorite of the adventures are MoZ4 Eight Kings and then MoZ1 Prisoners of the Maze.  Both quite good, and MoZ1 has a number of additional magical paintings that can be swapped in/out with those in Bottle City's picture gallery if you're so inclined!
