I have a "like new" 31" Panny CRT tube (CT-31SF13) that was in the basement collecting dust.

Just bought a new Plasma so the old Plasma is going to the basement and I have no need for the tube anymore.

It's Pristine and no burn-in etc. Very few hours on it.

Is there a market for these and does anyone know where I can get a ballpark price on what it's worth?

More than likely, it has no value. Too big and heavy, as well as obsolete with its analog tuner.

For an example, look at all of the free TVs in Chicago, usually with no takers.

Thanks Tom. Put it up on Craigslist and maybe I'll get lucky with a few bites!

If you get an offer of $40, take the money and run.

Please let us know how you do with your CL ad. It does appear to be a nice set.

Of course its mint condition should garner a little extra cheese than the norm. I would monitor my local CL to determine the norm based on its type although it's difficult to tell what they actually sold for, some folks ask ridiculous prices (can usually tell when they write that they paid x dollars for it when it was new ). Region seems to play a role too.

Philadelphia CL has many 27,32 and 36 CRTs for Free, I watch them go up for $100 and a few weeks later they are on the curb.
Just picked up (what i was looking for) a 27" sony KV27FS100 2003 for my mom today for free, I went though 6 other free 27" sets while waiting for the Sony. Did full calibrations on all but 2 (no service codes) and then put them back into free pool. It is amazing how good the gray scale can be on some of these old consumer grade sets. A Zenith for 2000 end up with DeltaEs under 1 flat across the board!
