* Retail value is subjective as some sellers will sell just above their wholesale cost and others will sell at suggested retail price or some items will not sell until they are discounted to half or more.  I really don't like to post values as the market fluctuates and I don't like "setting" a value that may go up or down depending on availability.  I decided to post these values to give the collector some idea of how much to anticipate spending if they find this item and may feel lucky if they are able to obtain the item for less.

* Retail value is subjective as some sellers will sell just above their wholesale cost and others will sell at suggested retail price or some items will not sell until they are discounted to half or more.  I really don't like to post values as the market fluctuates and I don't like "setting" a value that may go up or down depending on availability.  I decided to post these values to give the collector some idea of how much to anticipate spending if they find this item and may feel lucky if they are able to obtain the item for less.
