I said earlier this the best disc golf purchase for-the-money that I've ever seen. That thing has got to be worth 10x what you paid.

it may be worth that, maybe not.

on ebay, there were a ton of completed listings for similar gazelles.  many had went unsold around $35, but there were also a few that had sold for between $50-70.

I wonder what the value of my Flying Eye- Dancing Skeletons/ Classic Roc is.
Never been thrown or written on.
Plus my Flying Eye mini. That has my name on it. It has the bloodshot eyeball with wings.

It has more value than your name being on it! Dare I ask for a vote!!!!!
I'm thinking $85 for the pair.

Based on the few  single Gazelles that sold for $50-$75, I think my value price may be a little Lowe.
My discs are more rare.
Most minis from that era are most likely lost or in poor condition.Both discs are in brand new condition.
Plus I can put whatever dollar value on it I feel comfortable with.
The main thing is what discs similar to mine sell for now and what price someone pays me for them.
My family and relatives do have historic significance to this town.
So my top dollar may be in the $100 range.
I actually gave out the Lowest amount I might accept.
A couple years ago I quoted the Classic Roc at $35. I was kinda surprised Tank smirked.

You know you don't have to hit the "enter" key after every period, right Glover? I've noticed you do this on every post.  It's not poetry.

On a sidenote what historical significance does your family have to KC and what sort of value do you think it would add to your discs? Inquiring minds want to know. Let's have a holiday season Glover family history lesson.

One of my many cousins, Nick Rodina, was a stone masoner. He helped build the big Catholic church on Strawberry Hill. He also handmade a musical intrument called a tamburitza for artists of the era and was written about in the KC Star. He also was a band leader teaching folk music of the Croation heritage. Another of my cousins, Ray Rodina, wrote music and performed plus helped with a kids' musical group called St. John's Tamburitzans along with Don Lipovac.
The Rodina name is in the historical registry for being one of the founding families of Strawberry Hill. If anyone visits the Strawberry Hill museum, ask about the significance.
If you see a Rodina Contruction vehicle, my cousin Larry owns that.
You may find another Nick Rodina that is another cousin that is in The Kansas City Crusaders and was named tournament director back in 2010 for the Midwest Calssic the PGA puts on. I believe he still plays a role as director when the tournament is in town.
