Old .22 ammo, worth anything?

I've got some boxes of old .22lr. I think maybe the 70's? Any idea where I can find if it is worth anything? I'll post a pic later when I get a chance.

Probably not too much if it is from the 1970s...

I hear tell there are a group of old grannies out there with a bunch of 10-22's that would love to get their hands on your ammo!

I shot up a bunch of Remington in the old green and red boxes in front of an older guy who almost had a heart attack. "Those are collectible!!". So what does collectible mean? $7 a box instead of $5? Do I have to wait 30 years until they are worth $10? A $100 box of 410 shotshells is a different story!!

Call me old school, but I buy ammo to shoot. I don't collect it, unless it's just to shoot at a later date. That's what ammo is for.
