Many were sold during the Comiskey Park demolition auction (Sotheby's) in 1991 and immediately thereafter. You occasionally see one sell for about $1000 - $1200 on ebay or memorabilia auctions. The previous ones were generally installed when the park opened in 1910 and remained there until 1959. They were green and made of iron with 4 revolving "compartments" for people to usher in. This style is quite rare, I bought one around 1990. The BB HOF has one and I saw another in an auction - link below.
