Can you supply a picture of the whole poster and a description of the condition?

These posters were designed to be stored in tubes and so did not have any folds, was your copy stored in a tube?

In better condition, this poster would be worth more.

My guess would be that you would be lucky to get $50 because of all the creases and the tape on the corners. Simply put, it is not in the best condition.

If I were selling it, I would list it on eBay for a low starting bid, say between $1-$10 (with no reserve), and see what it brings.

I would be surprised if it sold for over $50.

I completely agree, people like to put these posters on the wall, and the condition goes against doing that, good luck though if you decide to put it on ebay.
