How much is an EXCELLENT condition copy of Encyclopedia of Sponge Ball Magic worth?
$350? More? Less?

We sold a very excellent copy on eBay last week, no known blemishes, fine dustjacket. We started the 7 day auction at 99 cents, no reserve, and it sold for $102.50 after 19 bids. I consider that a reasonable price, and since it is less than a week old, a good estimate of "current market value". Here's a link to that sale:

I sold a copy - not fine, but good- on ebay about a year and a half ago. It was sitting at $105 when 2 newbies started a bidding war. It ended up at $200+. Shortly thereafter quite a few showed up on ebay but none topped $150, most stayed around $100-$125.

Oh, I threw in a set of spongeballs for the winner. That might have been the determining factor.
