Wasn't sure if anyone else was interested in one of these. I have 2 complete with dust cover. Willing to part with one. I will need to take photos of it later to show you, but it has some aging signs. Not much can be done about that, but it's still a nice piece. Included is the dust cover, the entire dinner menu from that year, a small pre-set menu on the cover, and the wine listing on the back. Was a treat to look at some of these old prices (wish I could go back in time!). Looking for maybe $150. Was thinking about throwing it up on ebay, but that's just a lot of hassle. Please send me a private message if you're interested or want to jump on this. I should be able to attach photos of it later for viewing. There's a few water spot stains from the years of use, but no tears or mold, or the like.

Ok, finally getting around to updating this with actual pictures. Sorry about the wait, had a buyer that fell through.

Vintage menus (50s-60s) that have good graphics or are from well-known restaurants might bring over $100, but that seems a bit high for an 80s Mai Kai. Maybe a more avid collector can speak about that. I'm a but of a bargain hunter myself. The most I've paid was $50 for a very early DTB menu. I'd check the Completed Listings on eBay to see what items actually sold for.

Agreed. I have this menu. I collect Mai-Kai. Drink menus are the most valuable. Dinner menus need graphic covers to be generally collectible. Even the 1957 drink menu isn't going very high anymore just because everyone who wants one has one by now. This is a $15-20 menu, but a hard sell when you add shipping.
