Question Price for original Burton Air?

Hey all, I'm a non-boarder looking for an indication of what price I might get selling what I think is an original Burton Air - done a little research and it appears to be from 87/88. The bindings look kind of old, and there are a few stickers / scribbles on it, but it seems to be in good nick otherwise, with bag too. Here's the pic below, any help would be appreciated. Cheers!

Yeah that is the first model of the burton air from 87-88 was the first board I ever rode on.
Do not think you could get much for it except from someone who might collect them. That thing was a tank compared to boards today. Sorry not much help with the worth of it

Wow. I have been trying to find a pic of that deck for a long time. I started riding like two years before Burton came out with the Air. No idea what is worth, but thanks for the stroll down memory lane.

EDIT: nice Powell vato rat sticker on the tail, too.

yeah, it's weird...there are pictures of the older Elites and the Performers all over the place, but none of the first Air. Which is odd, because it is such a classic board.

You'd really have to find the right customer for it to really be worth anything substantial. I'd expect you'd get no more than $50 out of an average snowboarder... and those are just the ones looking for a cool wall decoration. Sweet board though.
