The griffin is an early driver from innova (small diameter). I think it was advertised as being "indestructable" like the hammer which innova accomplished by making the nose super thick. As a result it's pretty slow and overstable...not much of a driver. It's kind of roc like now that I think about it. Anyway, the disc was discontinued when they came out with better plastic eliminating the need for really thick dx plastic. Right now it's worth about 35 I'd say. Used to be more, but the market is really down for these right now.

I kinda said this, but let me be a little bit more specific, aside from Barstamp Buzzzes, Discraft stuff isn't super collectible at the time.

I think it also has to do with Elite X being their equivalent to Innova's Pro plastic. It's a great plastic, but people really want premium plastic when it comes to collectible discs, except when it comes to vintage Innova stuff. Discraft isn't as popular as Innova, either.

Honestly, I wouldn't expect that disc to go up in value to anyone except for the few people that throw them. It doesn't help that the disc was never made into actual production. If you find someone that loves those discs and can't get enough of them, I would think you wouldn't have much of a problem getting around $20 for it.

I did some searching trying to find a thread on aviars and how to tell them apart along with the different values. If this thread exists I would love to go to Aviar School as I just picked up a bunch of 2000 maybe a few earlie discs.

Cheers - Koffee

It is marked as a star teebird, but definitely feels like a Special Blend, so what say the experts? Maybe I should have posted it in the what's the story thread, I couldn't decide.

I've got one with this stamp, but mine actually is a Star Teebird.

Kyle knows his circle stamps, he sells them often on eBay and knows the true values!
