Exactly. That's not just your humble opinion. It is the very definition of "worth". It's worth what people will pay for it. Now, throw in the word "reasonable" and that can muddy the waters quite a bit since it takes us back into the realm of opinion.

That's been my experience. Ebay may have high prices but the moment some clown in a music or pawn shop gets his hands on one, he jacks the price up even more.
The advantage of local shops, though, is that they expect you to haggle with them. The price you see is the highest you will potentially have to pay. With Ebay, you don't have that info. The highest price depends on whether some guy in Philly drinks a little too much wine and decides he really wants that MS-20....
