i picked up a 6th printing OCE white box still in shrink wrap a few years back. Due to life changes I'm thinking of selling it and was wondering what people valued it at?

Its got about a dime to quarter size hole in the shrink wrap on the front (and thus the box revealed by it has a slight color shift.) other then that its pretty mint. I got it from a super reputable dealer so i know its authentic.

any ideas???

Thanks

Probably about $180-250 or so.

I agree, although I'd go to the high end. A typical unused copy would bring you $150 or more; with SW, you get the nuts out who have to have the shrink, they''ll up the price by $100 or so.  I'd say $250.

I was also going to suggest a $250 BIN. It is a reasonable price for a shrink box. If you decide to run a traditional auciton style and have the BIN option, start your bid at around $75. Be sure to include a couple pictures showing off the "greatness" of your shrinkage. Some shrink-head will bite. The higher starting bid will generally scare some idiot who thinks he is going to get it for $5. It also makes your BIN look more reasonable.


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

As to the color variation...How's it been stored since you bought it?  Any moisture exposure?

yeah that part of the box is slightly yellowed. If anything its good proof that it was the original shrink wrap. It was that way when i bought it. its been stored in a moisture free, sun free area, flat.

as for that ebay auction. thanks! he states he payed 334$ for his which is more then what i paid. if i can find a digital camera I'll take pictures an post them here.

I think $200-$250 is probably pretty reasonable.  There was this one not so long ago that looked pretty nice and sold for $204:
