I think you are absolutely right with your pricing. Booth has actually
been priced at 25k.

I'm only guessing but I think the logic runs something like this:
Hull get a record price for an overseas player, unproven in SL,
because they can replace him with an overseas player with equal/better
ability for less money. Having British players, with a track record
of SL success, GB caps, of the stature of Hunte & Prescott sign for
Hull creates an air of confidence that will encourage others to come
to Hull. This was, apparently, one of the reasons for the sustained
success of the eighties.
