    eBay is your best bet, the reason is these are still in use by someone, and to a certain person, this could be worth a lot.

    But with eBay its a 50/50 chance. Either you make money out of it or it goes for a buck. Here's what I would do. First, put it on Craigslist or something similar, with those 300 or how much you want for it. Leave it for a few weeks, and if nobody jumps on it, then put it in eBay.

    Put it on eBay with (high) a reserve price, then tell people to disregard the reserve price in your item description. :laugh:
