I have a vintage Black Widow Bow hard case that I would be interested in find out how much it is worth. It is 39" x 17"x 7". The outside is covered in a black vinyl?? with metal corner protectors. It has three closing locks that work and amazingly it still has the key! It also has the leatherette BW name /address tag on the outside handle. The inside has a foam interior that is set up for 1 takedown bow riser and two sets of limbs. It also has a place for a bow quiver. In the one corner is a Black Widow cedar box for accessories. Woodburned in the lid of this box is the black Widow emblem. The inside top of the box has 3 foam inserts for holding arrows. In total it will hold 26 arrows.
Any thoughts on time frame when these were made and what it is worth? Thanks!

I remember the exact case you're talking about...they had it in their 1994/1995 catalog. I wanted a Black Widow MAIII back in high school so badly and wanted that case for it. It's a beautiful case, but I think the newer Pelican cases offer a better alternative. That being said, it's a great piece of Black Widow history for a vintage MAII or MAIII.
