The market price for your phone book

Pre-internet days, I found a safely guarded phonebook in the house. It also backed up as an address book. It was usually near the phone. I did not know its value. I had a good idea what my TV would be worth if I had to sell it. Now we have data points on what the address book is worth for leasing/sharing with the outside world.
