I assume you mean eBay.

They come up for auction there every week (it is not rare to see multiple
units listed simulateously), and it is rare when one sells for less than

Considering how many of them are out there (tens of thousands based on
the original sales figures) I don't think they're worth much more than
that as long as they are complete, including all the game pieces, cards,
chips, and overlays, and the box is in decent condition.
