I think it depends more on *which* Campy catalog one is talking about, and three other things: condition, condition, and condition....

John's $1115 one was a #12 from 1953 in near-pristene condition IIRC. The very first catalog that Campagnolo put a number on. Very rare and substantial. I wish I had the intestinal fortitude to have gone for it.... I've never seen another one.

I think the later ones, like say #16 and newer, are more "commodities" - they show up much more frequently, so there is sort of an established "market" for them.

I agree that Chuck's compendium is a great reference resource, and not so darn valuable that you need to be afraid to use it regularly, but for drool factor, you gotta have the original color art!
