I own these two lenses:

-sigma 70-200 mmD EX DG HSM f/2.8
-nikon 80-200 f/2.8 D

And I don't know which one to keep.

What criteria should I look into before choosing?
And how much are these two worth?

I have a Nikon D7100 body.

I shoot with the 80-200 AF-D, but do not have any experience with the Sigma, so I think I should be asking you which one you'd keep, not the other way around. I believe only you can answer that question since you have both lenses, but I will say I have no reason to consider trading my Nikkor for any other third party lens, especially for the money I would get by selling it. I'll stick with what I've got for a while since the 80-200 (2-ring) has been a robust workhorse that hasn't failed me yet.
