I picked up a 6th Print OCE White Box in its original Shrink wrap. Cost a pretty penny, but was told by a few people i got a pretty good deal on it, since finding them still in shrink wrapped is rare. The shrink wrapping isn't perfect there is a small hole in it about the size of a quarter.

Just was wondering what people would value it at?

Hello timebeing,

Have a look at the Rulebooks & Sets page on the Acaeum.

http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/rulebooks.html

At the moment a 6th printing is listed at $130 in near mint.

I sold a shrinked 6th OCE for about $325 last fall on eBay.

From what I recall from having closely watched a lot of auctions in the last two years, that is an outstanding amount! Congrats!  :)

To be fair, mine was in minty-mint condition.  :D

I bought a shrinked OCE a year or so back at about $140.  Like regular OCE auctions, variability seems to be the norm, with wide spans in highs and lows at any given time.
