Not sure how much they're worth but I expect you'd get at least $15 back for it on eBay just based on the fact that it's made by Monster, even though it's just a composite cable.

Monster s-video cables are good but not worth the $70-$80 they go for. I did a test of the 3 (supposedly) best s-video cables; The Monster and 2 variants of Nintendo's official cables (which are quite a bit cheaper), & there's no difference.

I always use Nintendo's official stuff, but Bluedogrulez mentioned that he couldn't see a difference between an official s-video cable and a $7 generic s-video cable he bought:

So unless you have one of the funtastics with the better composite output, you'd probably find you'd get a much better image out of one of those $7 cables than that monster composite cable anyway.

EDIT: It would be worth doing a bit of research if you go for a cheap s-video cable as it's a bit hit & miss & some of them really are bad!
