Jim Riser's cups are also of the highest quality. I have several sets of his cups and they are all flawless in terms of production quality as well as being a dream to handle. Jim is also another one of those vendors who provides the highest standard of customer service.

When Richard was clearing out his attic last year I bought a "brand new" copy of this - absolutely pristine - and paid $75 for it.

I would htink $75-100 is fair, though you never know what you might get on eBay?
