Seems to me Matthews has a quite good reputation among the folks here and certainly has a better handle on the market than I. Sorry, but a low production repop can have a value higher than what you or I feel it does. Seems we have several folks running limited editions of globes these days and they are getting to be fairly pricey in my estimation. That being said, I have a Billups "airplane" globe of which ten sets were made several years ago. I sure hope due to its limited number and high quality there is at least one person who gets out of line if I decide to sell it (BTW, although not part of this discussion, it is well marked).
