There are a lot of current listings on eBay with a huge range of prices. There are actually TWO token higher than anything listings right around $2,000. There are a large number of copies available in the $25-$50 range. There are a handful of auctions starting at just $0.99 and the lowest BIN listing carries a $5.25 + 2 S/H.
