Purchasing question

I have been a professional jazz pianist for quite some time, and have always been interested in learning the tenor sax. I have been looking for a used tenor that is in good shape. Unfortunately, there are no good used tenors around my area, and I don't really know what I'm looking at anyway. A friend of mine has a mid-1970s Conn Shooting Star alto that is in nearly perfect condition, recently recorked and repadded that he will sell me for 100 dollars. Is this a good deal? My reasoning is that maybe I should get it just as a starter horn, and then once I find a good used tenor I can go from there. Any thoughts?
