I managed to dig out of storage a Sony TCM-858 "cassette-corder". It's in fantastic shape and still works great. Is there any value of this to the Apple I community, or has everyone pretty much moved onto non-tape storage media?

Probably uses "C" Cell Batteries.
With it being in excellent shape and operational
you should be able to get $20 to $30 for it.

Does it have a power pack?

Yep, it uses four C-size batteries. It has an internal AC power supply, but I can't find the cord for it -- it's an older square-style 2-pin plug (the pins are too narrow for a modern figure-8 type plug to work).
