Burls: value, buying, selling

Tony
>So I ran into a couple of logger pals the other day, and we were talking about burls once one of them remembered I turned. They had been taking burls and such to a fancy custom type wood yard, but were a little cheesed at the guy there and so asked if I wanted them. Naturally I said yes, but later started thinking...I don't know what a fair price is. One of the loggers has seen a burl bowl somewhere for $1300, he mentioned it several times in our conversation.
This leads me to believe he thinks the burls themselves are quite valuable.

Any help? Thanks!
