On the open market, a used set will fetch in the range of between $225 and $336 depending on the condition.
Galaxy Explorer is a pretty rare set these days as we have not seen set 497-1 currently for sale online or in retail in new and good condition in over one year. The current value of this set might be slightly higher then what we have estimated at this time. The last brand new Galaxy Explorer seen was sold on ebay.com.
