Do you guys have any idea what would be a good price for a low numbered copy of SOD? I found one copy that was number 51, and they are asking almost $2,400 for it. The higher number copies that I have found are in $600 - $900 range... Thanks

The book is worth between $350-$500 at this point. Lower numbers shouldn't hold a premium but even if they do, it wouldn't be higher than this range.

A member here has a copy for sale for $325.... #747 I believe.

I agree with Eric--that's MUCH too high a premium for a low number of SOD I. The high of about $500 seems right.

What was the original retail price of SOD1, and what's a fair price to pay for one today?

The gift edition was $75. The numbered edition totaled (with shipping) $310. I have no good idea on how much they're going for now. I know the gift edition is probably less than the original price.

It was just released this week, so it's too early to say. The first ones to show up will go for twice their worth a year later.

Yes. The one on eBay just now will go for quite a bit more than it should.
