Anyone have a ballpark idea of the value of an STS-51L press kit? Great shape — always in a binder. Thanks!

Based on my experiences, Al, official NASA press kits (not copies) for most shuttle missions can be anywhere from $5-15 each, however, certain flights such as STS-1, 51L and 107 could be upwards of $25+ all depending on their conditions. I've seen a few 51L's go for a bit higher, but more so, in earlier years than in comparison to today's market range values.

As a data point, it appears one example (with three NASA glossy photos) sold for $52 in September 2018, which would fall in line with Ken's assessment.
