Hi. CRT TV now are really hard to sell. That said there is a market for them on video game forum as they don't have as much display delay as modern TV (being analogue) and are often the only way to play light gun games. Most usually prefer the high end Sony trinitron but Mistubishi ones are very good one also. So you may expect to get between 40-60$ on classified ads but if you target classic videogames player you may get $100.

If you are not in a hurry and want to keep it stored, i expect to see those tise in price over time the same way lamp amplifier raised after being called obsolete for years. In 20 years, i would not be surprised to see those kind of TV selling for around $600-1000.
