Any item which is considered collectable can sell for as much as someone wants to pay for it. It all depends on how badly the collector wants the record.
Aor and metal is one of the least collectable genres in terms of rarities even though there are thousands & thousands of fans worldwide ( maybe even millions )
whereas privately pressed prog rock for example goes for huge amounts of money.
There are very few aor type cd's that would fetch more than $100 whereas a vinyl
prog lp like an original of Easter Island's record would fetch $2500. Mad I know
but that's how it goes.
Try getting a copy of Goldmine mag or Record Collector to get some guidance.
As for Sikk Vikki I have seen those going often for around $10-15 as they are not as rare as you think.
I find it to be swings and roundabouts, sometimes you get lucky and pick up a real gem of a rarity for a few $ then something you thought would be easy to get hold of ends up costing an arm and a leg because it turned out harder to get than you thought.
Another example is Shark Islands debut lp S'cool Bus ( only issued on vinyl ).
I paid $1 for a copy but I have seen it sell for $75
