It would bring whatever anyone thought it was worth or what ever anyone
was willing to SELL one for.

So.... since I won't sell mine for under $1,000, I guess they are worth
more than $1,000... at least to me.  Your mileage may vary.

Frankly... I think that an RX-10 is priceless.  Really... how much do you
think that the UNASSEMBLED MR-1 kit I own is worth?

We were talking about this on the repeater this afternoon.  Prices are
crazy.  I would NOT pay anything for a baseball card - they don't mean
much TO ME.  VERY few people would have paid what I did for the RX-10, in
fact, I doubt anyone but myself and one other guy (HI Dave!  Nyaa
Nyaa!!!) would have paid more than a few bucks for one.  It's funny to
think how many (like all) of these got tossed into the trash or junk
drawer after a while because they were so primitive and "useless."   Like
an old baseball card... to me.

Anyways... I gotta go put this thing on the air... but first I'll
need to clear the partially assembled NC20 off my desk.
