To me it looks like a pin oak burl but I could be wrong. Yes and no it is and isnt valuable, because it all depends on who wants a burl and how bad they want it.

It also depends upon whether it is sound and whether it is an onion burl or the kind you are expecting.

Try contacting Greg AKA OregonBurls and ask him. He seems pretty knowledgeable about burls. Hope that helps.

A burl is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are getting until you look inside.
