    I bought my 1984 lunchbox for around $25 off ebay about a year ago. It was unmarked and in pretty good condition.

    Marking severly hurt the value IMO.

    Oh, and welcome to the boards btw.

    Lunchboxes doesn't go for much... damaged ones go for a lot less.

    I would probably pay between $5 - $10... depending on what the picture is and what it's made of.

    Metal? Plastic? I often will pay more for metal depending on its condition compared to the plastic ones, but, yeah, under $20 for any of that stuff unless it's immaculate and/or the thermos is present is normal, I'd say.

    I got one from Newbury Comics about 4 years ago for 10 bucks. It has the 1984 art work on it.
