Thanks for the info... it's as I suspected... scarce doesn't indicate value. Other examples come to mind where the rarity and value don't always go hand in hand. The Liberty Coin Watch on the mechanical side, and the see-through Electric Clearview on the electric side should be selling for much more (more than Piping Rocks and Venturas) if scarcity was the only determining factor of value.
To me, the other interesting pricing element has always centered around personalizations. Some collectors like a pristine case back, while others really enjoy a great birthday, wedding, Christmas, or graduation personalization engraved on the case back. I tend to favor non-personalized backs.
So... based on the comments above, I think I'll post my Winslow in a week or two and for those interested, I'm willing to let it go for less and Gehrig's Piping Rock. And it doesn't even have any personalization like Gehrig's does.
