Rare Trek T-Shirt Question

I have one of the very rare Star Trek t-shirts that was distributed for the WGA Writers Strike back in 2007. It's been vaccuum sealed in plastic this entire time.

It's the one that is white with a red handed Vulcan salute and the "needs of the many" quote from Spock.

Does this have any value? How would I even know where to look to find this out?

No idea about the value of such a thing, but I'd try and gauge interest from Ebay, maybe have a look to see if there are any being sold currently. There are bound to be collectors forums out there to where you can query. Hope this helps.

Not worth the effort to have it vacuum sealed.

Place on EBay and set the hidden minimum price at $1000, just to see how far they'll bid it up.

Well, in all fairness, I did the sealing myself with my professional grade food processor.

Good idea on the eBay thing. It was just an impulse buy back in 2007 from the guy that was putting them out to the Trek folks.

Star Trek collectibles are worth what someone is willing to pay. The trick is finding the right person at the right time.
