Posted By: <b>VintageBasketballPat</b><p>Hey Giovanni...<br /><br />I don't know if I'd classify this item as being as rare as the Scott's Mikan...but it is definitely very rare.<br /><br />Jeff Mullen wrote an article on these, but as in the case of many of his articles, some of his information is inaccurate.<br /><br />If memory serves me he placed the value at $300. We saw in the Mastro auction that even a poorly conditioned Mikan Menko sells for more than that.<br /><br />I'd place the value in the $750-$1500 range depending on the condition.<br /><br />It is a great item. I've attached an image of the two that I own.<br /><br />Regards, Pat <img src="http://www.network54.com/Realm/tmp/1203723404.JPG">
