Default Fair asking price for a Photon in good condition?

Sprint contract is finally up so I am looking to sell my beloved photon. Was going to put it on CL but not sure what to ask, not trying to make.a.fortune from it but not really wanting to sell myself short either. I only paid $200 BNIB about 7 months ago probably. Thinking about starting at $150 and see what happens. What do you guys think?
Phone has a invisishield since the day I got it and has had a otterbox commuter about a week after. So screen is perfect, phone has a few scuff marks on the Bezel from the actual otterbox and has a small scratch on one of the bottom corners from the one time I took the pyrrhic off and happend to drop it. Go figure.
Phone would come with original box and accessories as well as the invisishield and otterbox

Sell it on Craigslist. 3 just sold in my area for 250ish I would not accept anything lower than 200 or your getting ripped off. The phone is still considered high end and its one of the very very very few considered a world phone and once north America gets unlocked which I'm sure it will, the phone will have a much higher resell value. I see single core phones like the inspire going for 150-175 in good condition.

Edit: one just sold 2 days ago. It was unlocked with cm9 4.5.1 beta on it for $300 flat
