It depends on whether he was actually a U-Boat crew member or not, whether he served on one of the well known boats or never left a training flotilla or whether he served under a well known Captain (and not forgetting awards etc). Just because a Soldbuch had a large red U it didn't always mean that he was a U-Boat crew member. The large U was a mark used to show that the Soldbuch holder was allowed into the area used by the submarines, such as the large pens etc. He could of been a supply driver or even a member of a Flak unit that were stationed to guard the pens. Knowing what boat he served on and when is all important to providing a valuation as prices will range from around 300 Euros to a few thousand.
