I can answer many (if not all) questions about collectible walkmans.
Have been collecting for 4 years, I have over 450 of them from over 20 brands.
We have a mailing list at www.pocketcalculatorshow.com
There were thousands of walkman (and walkmanlike) products marketed after 1979... many had very innovative features, and many are very rare today.
I still have many on my "holy grails" list... and I have pictures of thousands of models as well as owning over 450 walkmans myself.
Sony and the other big name portable audio makers did not often send their most sophisticated models to the US market.
Sony will not release a listing of all the models they have manufactured... new and unknown ones surface almost monthly, making the search very interesting!

I have seen several of them on ebay, but not recently... they were promo items, only made one year as far as I know. As for the value, it is hard to say. I just asked the forum at stereo2go.com, you
Hi, those are pretty rare... I once owned one that was presented to Barbara Mandrell! Anyway, if it has all its materials (wood case, accesssories, manuals etc) and is in excellent working condition
hi, while I only collect the cassette walkmans, I seem to remember these going for $20 or so with the case, as long as it works... and they usually do... I do not know the dates of manufacture, but you
Hi, Terry, These can be worth as much as $500, sometimes much more, depending on condition. If it shines up really well, all the accessories are there, and it works completely (no wobbling or tape problems)
Hi, I am researching your question... I am guessing those were made in the early 90's, but will be able to be more accurate shortly. They aren't too valuable, usually going for around $10 on ebay. For
