That been said this was a TIE DYE and in a PRO plastic which I believe has even more value. I never seen one like this!!! Now that its in my hands I have the dilemma: hang it or throw it? Honestly I bought it with the idea of using it. If I sell it say in 5 years is it really worth making a $50 profit and spend it on 3 discs? I would rather throw it and pass it down to my son one day.

[is this PRO plastic the equivalent of todays STAR??]
I thought the champ bring more value but not for sure, a used pro went on ebay for 22.50 testerday with a dimple and say 7.5/10

I'm almost sure Champion Classic Rocs are worth more than the Pro ones. Champion (Stock Stamp) go for $50 easy, new.

lemmie clarify somestuff here...
pro classic rocs are 30-35 in mint and max weight condition...
champ classic rocs are 50-60 in mint and max weight condition.

champs are far more desirable to collectors and throwers as they hold their stability forever...
pro classic rocs fit more into that "oddity" class. they weren't around for very long (much like pro teebirds) and they weren't around for very long for a very good reason. they beat up too fast and lost stability.

So the rule shouldn t be the more its rare the more is desired and the more is valued?
The PRO i picked up as per image is also a TIE DYE. Not sure how many TIE DYES were made back than. Any idea what could be the year since it was mfg in RANCHO?

lets be clear...
crappy plastic+good mold+crappy tyedye does not equal $$$

my evaluation stands. I believe the pros were all rancho IIRC...
you overpaid if you paid $51... plain and simple.

I bought cuz I want to throw it not cuz I m a collector. The dilemma came about when I started reading about the value of ROCs. This disc seemed to be one of a kind.

Thank u all for the inputs!
