how rare are these? $150 seems like a lot of money to spend on them

That's for the 2nd Edition. Those are fairly rare. I once traded a
sweatshirt to Rob Pike for a copy of those (and a few swag T-shirts so I
wouldn't get too cold taking the train back to New York City from MH).

AFAIK they only shipped with a licensed copy of the 2nd Edition of
Plan 9, so they aren't that common.  Sadly I lost my set a decade
ago :-(

$150 is probably a realistic value, given their rarity.  Of course
Abebooks has completely destroyed the used book marketplace, so
it's impossible to accurately value anything that's out of print
these days.
