There is an indication of the rarity of a set in the LEGO Collector's Guide. I assume it's the same in the second edition as well, as this is what the two reviews of it on Brickset have to say: Rarity Rating.

If you look at what a box is worth compared to the original price, I would say 3724 LEGO Dragon. It went for $99, And now you can not find it for less than $350, up to $800 for a mint in box version.

They have more and other stats, too. E.g., the following quick overview for every set: They pull their data from eBay (through some third-party tool ...

I'm not familiar with any tools that do this with eBay or Bricklink price histories. I'm pretty sure that Bricklink removes all data older than 6 months, so if this information is available, it would have to come from a third party who scraped it from the site. I have used a tool called Tracktor to look at Amazon price histories for LEGO sets. Sadly, this ...

I must say, a very valuable one would be the exclusive Maersk container ship. the original 2004 set (not the 2011 reissue!) is worth a lot of mone, considering they only made a handful. other than that, the Unitron Monorail can go for quite a bit MISB nowadays.
